By now you must have heard about the Eway Bill. If you have not, I am here to help. Electronic Way Bill is the full form of the EWay Bill. It is a type of document that is related to monitoring the movement of Goods carrying a value of more than Rs. 50,000.

This document is valid throughout India. It supersedes state-specific bills. This Eway Bill contains all the information related to any consignment of goods like the name of the consigner, date, origin, and destination of the consignment, rate of the goods, the quantity of it, other related information as weight, size, etc., name of the consignee, etc. Such a bill keeps tax evasion under check.

What is Eway Bill System

The Eway Bill system is generated following the CGST Rules of 2017. Rule number 138 of the CGST Rule is associated with it. From 1 April 2018, the Eway Bill monitoring system for transporting goods has started. This Bill is generated by an electronic port.

The Bill cannot be generated once the movement of Goods has started. The Bill needs to be generated before the movement of goods from one place to another.

This Bill generates a unique number called EBN. This number has a period of validity depending on the information provided by the consigner. This number is made accessible to the supplier, recipient, and transporter.

E-way Bill Requirement & Who can generate Eway bill and why?

There are some procedural aspects related to the movement of goods from one place to another under GST. All of these aspects are addressed by Eway Bill. It is generated either by the consigner or the consignee if they are transporting the goods on their own by railways, vessels, air or any other conveyance.

For transportation by road, if the consignment or goods are handed over to the transporter, it is the transporter who has to generate the Eway bill. If the value of goods is more than Rs. 50,000 and neither the consigner or the consignee generates the Eway bill, the onus of generating the bill shifts to the transporter.

Note: If a principal from one State sends the goods to a job worker located in another state, the Eway bill needs to be generated by the principal for whatever the value of the goods. Though the transportation of handicrafts is exempted from registration, but the person transporting it needs to generate the Eway bill not depending on the value of the consignment.

The main purpose for which the Eway bill is generated is to check tax evasion. It also helps track the movement of goods in the country and it complies with the GST law.


Who is exempted from the Eway bill requirement?

There are certain exceptions where the Eway bill needs not to be generated.

  1. If the consignment value is less than Rs. 50,000/-.
  2. If the movement of goods is in such areas as are exempted under SGST Rule 138 (14)(d).
  3. If the goods are transported to a container freight station or inland container depot for clearance of custom.
  4. If a non-motorized conveyance is used to transport goods.
  5. If consigner is Ministry of Defence, Central Government, State Government or local authority.
  6. If only the empty cargo containers are transported.
  7.  If the distance traveled for the transportation of goods is less than 20kms. In such a case, one needs to carry a delivery challan.
