From AY 2015-16, it has become mandatory for the taxpayers to provide the details of all the bank accounts held by them in India including the accounts with joint names.  Hence the joint account should be shown in the ITR of both the persons. 
The point is that two professionals are receiving fee receipts in a joint account. But there are filing their individual ITR as per provision of section 44ADA. 
If two professional are maintaining joint account for the professional receipts then there must be sufficient evidence to show the receipts of each person separately. But it is recommended that they should maintain separate account for their professional receipts or they can maintain a partnership firm for their profession with single account in the name of firm.
