The internet is not a lawyer and neither are you.
Talk to a real lawyer about your legal issue.

From your query understand that you have rented a residential flat for residential purposes and there is no ongoing litigations hence giving reply accordingly
Cash or bank transfer doesn't matter as long as you are paying appropriate taxes and the same is accurately reflected in your Returns.
When I say taxes I mean only income tax as GST is not applicable on Renting of immovable property for non commercial purposes.
Just ensure that the rent receipts, registered agreement and your income tax returns have same figures, there should not be an issue.
