Bengaluru: 30 yrs old Akhil was very happy when he saw a hundred rupee note lying on the ground this morning. However, his joy turned to concern immediately as he started wondering whether he has to disclose this amount to IT department now.

Rare sight at ATMs these days

These days, with so many threats being issued by IT department asking people to come clean, he is a worried man. He doesn’t want to have any unaccounted amount with him. At the same time, a 100 Rs note is very valuable these days so he doesn’t want to give it up either. With these thoughts swirling around in his head, Akhil wrote a letter to IT department seeking clarification whether this falls under unaccounted income or not.

“Like Amitabh Bachchan of Deewar film, pheke hue paisse mein bhi nahin uthata tha. Had it been an old 500 or 1000 note, for that matter even the new 2000 Rs note, I would not have touched it but it was a 100-rupee note. I have been visiting ATMs and banks all over town to get a glimpse of it. I thought this must be a divine reward for my hard work so I accepted it as Prasadam, touched it with my forehead and put it in my pocket”, said Akhil while speaking to us.

“When I came to know that IT department is planning to ask everyone about their unaccounted income, I started getting nervous. In that case, this 100 rupee income which is from an unknown source potentially falls under the purview of an IT audit. I thought why to take panga with IT department, that too for a 100 rupee note, that is why wrote a letter to them seeking clarification”, said Akhil.

As per sources, IT department has already thrown Akhil’s letter into the waste basket along with old 500 and 1000 Rupee notes.
