Six states to roll out intra-state e-way bill from today

The Economic Times By Agencies Jun 01, 2018, 12.13 PM IST

The government had launched the electronic-way or e-way bill system from 1 April for moving goods worth over Rs 50,000 from one state to another.

As many as six states, including Punjab and Odisha, will make mandatory e-way bill requirement for intra-state movement of goods from today.

The six states -- Mizoram, Odisha, Punjab, Chhattisgarh, Goa and Jammu & Kashmir -- are set to implement the e-way bill system for intra-state movement of goods from June 1, GST Network said in a statement.

Besides, Tamil Nadu and West Bengal will roll out the same on June 2 and June 3, respectively.

The Central Board of Indirect Taxes and Customs (CBIC) has already said that e-way bill for moving goods within a state will become mandatory from June 3, with the country-wide roll out of the mechanism.

So far, 27 states and union territories have made e-way bill mandatory for intra-state movement of goods.

From 8 lakh e-way bills generated in the first week of April, the average number of those bills rose to 16.8 lakhs on May 30.

"So far, a total of 6.43 crore E-way bills have been generated on the e-way portal," GSTN said.

The government had launched the electronic-way or e-way bill system from 1 April for moving goods worth over Rs 50,000 from one state to another.

The same for intra or within the state movement has been rolled out from 15 April.

Touted as an anti-evasion measure, transporters of goods worth over Rs 50,000 would be required to present e-way bill to a GST inspector, if asked. The measure is expected to help boost tax collections by clamping down on trade that currently happens on cash basis.

Here are 7 quick things you can keep in mind as a business, to prepare yourself for the time ahead:

  • You can generate the e-way bill using GSTIN from http://ewaybillgst.gov.in
  • E-way bill will be required when the value of taxable consignment, along with the tax value, is more than Rs 50,000
  • If you have sent material for Job Work then either you or the Job Worker can generate the e-way bill
  • As a supplier, you can authorize the transporter, e-commerce operator or the courier agency to fill Part A of the e-way bill
  • If the distance between your primary place of business and that of the transporter is less than 50 KMs, only Part A of the e-way bill is required to be filled, and Part B is not required to be filled
  • Once the e-way bill is generated, the recipient of goods can confirm or deny the receipt of goods before the actual delivery or 72 hours, whichever is earlier
  • In cases where the goods are being transported by railways, aeroplane or ship, the e-way bill can only be generated by the supplier or a recipient, and not by the transporter.

However, in such cases, an e-way bill can be generated even after the goods shipment has started.
