According to Rule 138E (a) and (b) of CGST Rules, 2017 the waybill generation can be restricted. Therefore, those taxpayers who fail to file their GSTR 3B and CMP 08 for two or more consecutive periods will not be able to generate their e waybills.
Thus, from 1st December 2020, onwards, the blocking of the EWB generation facility will be applicable to all the taxpayers. This is irrespective of their Aggregate Annual Turnover (AATO)). Also, this is in terms of Rule 138 E (a) and (b) of the CGST Rules, 2017, on the EWB portal.
Accordingly, on 1st December 2020, the GST System will check the status of returns filed in Form GSTR-3B or GST CMP-08. This will be for the class of taxpayers to whom it applies, and restrict the generation of EWB in case of:
- Non-filing of two or more GSTR 3b returns for the months up to October 2020; and
- Non-filing of 2 or more statements of CMP-08 for the quarters up to July to September 2020
Therefore, this blocking will take place periodically from 1st December 2020 onwards.
Hence, in order to avail of continuous EWB generation facility on EWB Portal, taxpayers are advised to file their pending GSTR 3B returns/GST CMP-08 statements immediately.
