Every registered person who causes the movement of goods shall generate e way bill for the movement of goods. The registered person shall enter into eway bill login in the system to generate e waybill.

This includes outward supplies, inward supplies, job work supplies, and even imports. As per the GST Rule, every consignment has a value of Rs. 50,000/- or more shall generate e waybill.  This is the threshold limit for its generation. However, there may be different threshold limits in different states.

The common electronic portal to generate e-way bills is https://ewaybillgst.gov.in.

About E way Bill Portal

In order to generate e way bill, one must register on its portal. Without credentials taxpayers, citizens, and the transporter can not access eway bill login in the system.

However, registration on the portal is a very easy and simple process.

Part A and Part B of E waybill

E Way bill Part A

It is comprised of details of the GSTIN of the recipient, place of delivery (PIN Code), invoice or challan number, and date.  Further, it also contains the value of goods, HSN code, transport document number (Railway Receipt Number), and reasons for transportation. You can see the below offline format. Also, you can see on top of the online format which specifies details of PART A and Part B.

image for e way bill part A and B
Part A and Part B

The taxpayer or the supplier of goods has to generate a PART-A slip. The validity of PART A is 24 hours. Thus, the generator can cancel PART A before the Lapse of time.

E Way bill Part B

It is Comprising of transporter details like the Name of Transporter, Vehicle number, GST Number of Transporter, etc. Further, it is mandatory for the supplier to fill its PART B. This is the basic requirement of this rule. The GST rule does not allow for the movement of goods Without filling PART B. Here, the supplier has to fill PART B before proceeding with the movement of a vehicle. However, the transporter can update the details of PART B except for the GST NO./Enrollment number of the transporter.

The validity of PART B is mentioned on the E waybill. Thus, only the receiver of Goods can reject it within 72 hours. Also, the transporter can extend its validity, if he can not deliver the goods at a specified time.

Thus a new system would ensure that a taxpayer, prior to the movement of goods, would inform each transaction’s details to the tax department. Also, the acknowledgment number received will serve as proof of informing the department before the movement of goods. Then after he can use this acknowledgment number as a valid document accompanying the truck.

The whole idea of this system is to upload the details of all transactions by a taxpayer on the common portal.  The generated document from the common portal is easy to track and verify by the stakeholders.

E Way Bill Rules

As you know E Way bill under GST is completely new for taxpayers.  Therefore taxpayers have many questions regarding this subject, especially when he is new.  Thus, GST India News has brought to you, frequently asked questions.  We tried to cover most of the questions on our entire website on this topic.

image for rules

You can search for other questions on our News home page.  Also, you can see our Question and answer section for answered questions on e waybill.

1. What is the Consignment value in E-way Bill under the GST system?

Ans:  Every manufacturer or trader issues a tax invoice, delivery challan, or simple invoice for taking out material from his premises.  Therefore Consignment value is the value declared on your invoice, delivery challan, or bill of supply as the case may be.  Further, Consignment value includes Central tax, State or Union territory tax, Integrated tax and Cess charged if any.  You should not exclude such a tax charged on the invoice.

Secondly, if the goods you are supplying are exempt under GST, then the consignment value does not include such exempted goods.

Thirdly, the Consignment value does not include any freight charged by the transporter on such exempted goods.

Conclusion: you should generate e way bill only for taxable supplies with their value, plus any taxes and freight charged by the transporter if any.   The value of Exempted goods is completely out of consignment value.

2. Do I need to register separately on e way bill portal also, as I already registered on GST Portal?

Ans: Since e way bill portal is a different website, persons registered on the GST portal need to register on e way bill separately.  you can use your GSTIN on e way bill portal and then your data gets fetched from the GST portal to E way bill portal.  You need to visit an e way bill portal namely www.docs.ewaybillgst.gov.in to register yourself and generate.

Once you enter your GSTIN on E way bill portal, the system sends an OTP on your registered mobile under GST.  Once you enter the OTP received on your mobile number, the system authenticates the user.  The further system allows you to generate a username and password on e way bill portal.  This user name and password can be used for generating e waybill on the portal.

3. When the validity of E Way Bill starts?

Ans: Is it immediately after its generation or at some other time?.  This is very crucial because once the time expires it has no value and goods cannot be moved officially if e way bill gets expire.

The validity of e way bill starts immediately when you first enter the vehicle number in Part B of e way bill for transportation.  Unless you enter the vehicle number, e way bill is not valid for the movement of goods from one place to another.  The transporter can make subsequent entries in Part B to change the vehicle number.  Therefore its validity is not re-calculated for subsequent entries.

The validity period of e way bill is calculated based on the approximate distance entered at the time of generating e way bill.  Every 200 km, 1 day is valid for the movement of goods.  For additional kilometers up to 200 km 1 day is allowed.  Let us see an example, If the approximate distance entered in e way bill is 320 km then its validity is 3+1 days.  In the case of over-dimensional cargo, the validity of distance is 1 day for every additional 20km.

4. Do I need to generate e way bill if I am a consumer of goods and carrying the goods myself after purchasing from the supplier?

Ans: According to GST Rules every person shall generate e way bill that causes the movement of goods from one place to another.  This is applicable where the consignment value is equal to or more than Rupees 50,000.  If you carrying the goods yourself then you can ask the supplier to provide it for the said goods.
