E Way Bill
E-way bill is an electronic waybill generated on the GST portal for the movement of goods. Any supplier/agent is transporting goods where the consignment value greater than Rs. 50000 is required to generate and produce this e-way bill. Part B containing transport detail is used to generate the e-way bill.
E-Way Bill system is now integrated with Vaahan system of Transport Department. Vehicle (RC) number entered in e-waybill will be verified with Vaahan data for its existence/correctness. If the vehicle number does not exist, then system will alert the user to check and correct, if required. If the vehicle (RC) number is correct as per the tax payer, then he can continue with generation of E-Way Bill. However, he needs to get the vehicle number updated in the vaahan database so that in future E-Way Bill generation will not be affected.
GST Registered Person
- When a registered person causes the movement of goods/ consignment, either in the capacity of a consignee (i.e., buyer) or consignor (i.e., seller) in his/her vehicle or hired vehicle or railways or by air or by ship, then either the registered person or the recipient should generate the e-Way Bill in Form GST EWB 01 electronically on the common portal by furnishing information in Part B.
- When a registered person causes the movement of goods and hands these over to the transporter for transportation by road, but the e-Way Bill has not been generated, then it is the transporter who needs to generate the bill. The registered person will first furnish the information relating to the transporter in Part B of Form GST EWB. After which, the transporter will generate the e-Way Bill by the information furnished by the registered person through Part A of Form GST EQB 01.
- When an unregistered person causes the movement of goods, through his/her conveyance or hired conveyance or using the services of a transporter, then the e-Way Bill needs to be generated either by the unregistered person or by the transporter, by completing Form GST EWB-01.
- When an unregistered person supplies the goods to a registered person AND the registered person is known to the unregistered person at the time of the start of the movement of goods, then it will be considered that the registered person is moving the consignment. In this case, the registered person or transporter shall complete the formalities of the e-Way Bill.
