Resource E Way Bill In GST (FAQ)            


So, the E-Way Bill was successfully launched on, April 1, 2018, and things went pretty well given there were no major glitches, as reported by GSTN chief executive.

We have compiled a few points to make sure your experience with e-way bill is good:

1. E-way bill launched on April 1, 2018 is valid only for inter-state (from one state to another) movement of goods. E-way bill for intra-state (within the same state) movement of goods will be launched later on in a phased manner. We will keep you posted on that.

2. It is okay to generate a single e-way bill from destination A to destination B even if there is more than one transporter involved in transit. Lets say a transporter is carrying goods and his vehicle breaks down in the middle of the journey. Another transporter is then called to carry the goods to the destination. Heres it is not necessary for you to generate two e-way bills. The first transporter can simply hand over the e-way bill to the second transporter and this other transporter can then fill the details of his vehicle in the bill and carry goods after that.

3. If the movement of goods is done on account of job-work, then it is not necessary for you to generate the e-way bill. The job worker can also generate the bill.

4. It is not that the validity of the e-way bill starts from the moment it is generated. In fact, the validity of the e-way bill starts when the details are filled in the Part B of e-way bill by the transporter or party and click the submit button.

5. If multiple consignments are being transported to different locations by a transporter, then a consolidated e-way bill is sufficient.

6. If the goods are not able to be transported from point A to point B within the validity period, then the goods cannot be legally transported. The movement shall be deferred. Under exceptional circumstances, extension sought by the transporter on remaining distance. The Commissioner of the state shall be required to intervene, and it will be purely at his/her discretion to grant an extension.

7. The truck driver shall mandatorily carry the Tax Invoice or Bill of Supply or Delivery Challan as applicable on the basis of nature of goods to be transported. However, e-way bill is required to carry in case consignment value of taxable goods exceeds Rs 50000/- in a motorized conveyance.

8. The truck driver shall give the importance to Validity Period as mentioned in e-way bill and strive hard to deliver the goods within time. Proof of Deliver always taken from consignee.

9. Take immediate help of Consultant in case goods or vehicle detained by the officer.
