The query is not very clear. Presuming that you want to make payment of an amount more than Rs 20,000/- otherwise than by account payee cheque/ bank draft etc. in such case as per current provisions if aggregate of payments made to a single person in a day exceed Rs 20,000/-, the entire payment is disallowed.
Though the above amended provisions effective from 1-4-2009, makes it abundantly clear that the incidence of cash payment to a person in a single day is the fact para materia and not the number of invoices or items of expenses, earlier also a similar stand had been upheld in the case of CIT vs Shanmuga (146 ITR 600).
Hence, as of now any single or multiple cash payments to a single person in a day aggregating more than Rs 20,000/- shall be disallowed irrespective of number of invoices except under certain specified circumstances considering business expediency and other factors (refer rule 6DD).
