The Significance of a distinct E-way Bill across States

×

Table of Content


An E-way bill is an electronic record generated on the GST portal that documents the flow of goods. It is a method of uploading the information by the person who causes the movement of goods through a digital platform before the transportation of such goods. This information will help in the generation of the e-way bill on the website. In this article, we will learn about the state-by-state e-way bill limit and how to generate one if a transaction exceeds the specified limit.

The e-way bill was implemented on April1, 2018 for the interstate movement of goods as per the decision of the 26th GST Council Meeting. It was supposed to be implemented within the states in a phased-out manner from April 15 to June 1, 2018. However, all states had to implement the e-way bill for local movement of goods up to June 1, 2018. According to the latest e-way bill update, a roll-out plan was presented at the GST Council's 26th meeting, in which the country would be divided into four zones and one zone will be added to the E-way bill each week, allowing a full e-way bill state-by-state roll-out to be attempted by May, 2018.

Many state governments issued their own e-way bill notifications for the applicability of E-way bill for the intrastate movement of goods. For example, Karnataka has made the process of registration and creation of the Karnataka e-way bill very simple. All you have to do is to go to www.gst.kar.nic.in and furnish requisite details. These are then forwarded to the national E-way bill portal. You will then have to complete the process on this portal.

Did you know?

That when an E-way bill is generated, a unique E-way Bill Number (EBN) is assigned and made available to both, the supplier as well as the recipient? An E-way bill is also assigned to the transporter of the said products.
