more states, including Gujarat, Haryana and Bihar, have joined the government's
centralized e-way bill system for inter-state road transportation of goods in the
GST regime, taking the total of states implementing
the scheme to ten. Under
the Goods and Services Tax rolled out from July last year, inter-state movement
of goods beyond 10 km, with a value of Rs 50,000 and above, will mandatorily
require e-way bill from February 1. Four states -- Karnataka, Rajasthan,
Uttarakhand and Kerala -- have already started using e-way Bill. , six more
states -- Haryana, Bihar, Maharashtra, Gujarat, Sikkim and Jharkhand -- have
started the trial runs kick started by the GST Network (GSTN).
Other states are also likely to join us soon in this initiative and it will be implemented
throughout the country from next month. Transporters and other taxpayers will
not be required to visit any tax office or check post under this system and the
E-way Bill can be generated electronically.
who want to generate e-way bill can visit the 'ewaybill.nic.in' portal and
register themselves by giving the GSTIN. Transporters who are not registered
under GST can enroll themselves under e-way bill system by providing their PAN
or Aadhaar to generate the eWay Bill. There is a provision for cancellation of
e-way Bill within 24 hours of its generation.
