As per your provided Salary i.e 18000 PM comes to annual Salary of Rs 216000. With in this Standard Deduction is Rs 2,00,000 as per IT act., So you have excess Salary of Rs 16,000 to be pay Tax. With in this also per month 3000 House rent allowance is exempted so that you are not in the TDS. You need not to pay any tax in any manner. Even though your salary credited by way of Cash/cheue also. Do not worry and say the same fact to your employer if they are not satisfy with the above explanation. Please feel to speak me
Hope you have cleared your doubt

Even considering your total Income to Rs.2,16,000. it is totally exempted for the F.Y.2013-14.
Under 97 A you get benefit of Rs.2,000 in tax hence on 16,000 tax liability Rs.1,600 less Rs.2000
No tax do not worry.
This is surprising that even your company is paying salary in cash and are intending to deduct tax. Somewhere something must be going wrong.
