E-way bill is a considered a vital mechanism to check tax evasion under Goods and Services Tax (GST) and the government has been keen to get the system working. Originally planned for a February 1 roll-out, the site witnessed major technical glitches, prompting the government to take a staggered approach.

On April 15, intra-state movement of goods in Gujarat, Uttar Pradesh, Telangana, Andhra Pradesh and Kerala also come under the ambit of e-way bills.

The government on April 13 issued a circular that has laid down the procedure for interception of vehicles carrying the consignment of goods, for checking, detention, release etc. of goods carried in such vehicles.

To prevent detention, it is important that in case of transportation of goods through road, E-way bill needs to be generated before the commencement of movement.

According to the circular, interception etc. of goods and vehicles is to be done by the proper officer authorised by the Joint Commissioner or any other officer specified in the Act. As per Circular No. 3/3/2017 – GST dated 05 July 2017, the proper officer for the purpose of Rule 138B is Inspector of Central Tax.

The guidelines state that the person in charge of the conveyance has to carry invoice or delivery challan along with a copy of e-way bill in physical form or in electronic form. A e-way bill number may be available with the person in charge of the conveyance in form of a printout, SMS or written on an invoice. All these forms are valid forms.

GST E-Way Bill – key pointers that you need to know

GST e-way bill xattax

A lot of buzz has been generated recently around E-Way Bill as part of the GST compliance mechanism, similar to what Input Tax Credit has generated few months back with government all set to rollout this very soon. This blog provides an overview of GST E-Way Bill and its significance without getting much into the technical and operational aspects.

What is an E-Way Bill?

An E-way Bill is an electronic way bill that needs to be generated online (via GST portal) for movement of goods either for inter-state or intra-state sales. This E-Way bill needs to be raised before the goods are shipped and should include information such as details of the goods, their consignor, consignee and transporter. As support documents, a transporter needs to carry the invoice and the copy of the Eway Bill for goods, which are being transported.

Though check posts have been abolished under the new GST regime, a consignment can be intercepted at any moment during the goods transit for verifying the E-Way Bill. In case a transporter fails to show an E-Way Bill for the consignment, a penalty of Rs. 10,000 or tax sought to be evaded, whichever is greater can be levied.

GST offers flexibility to let any of the parties of a transaction, either the consignor or the consignee to generate the E-Way Bill, provided they are registered parties. Whatever may be the mode of transport of goods – either by air, rail or road, the E-Way Bill must be mandatorily generated. In a scenario, where goods are handed over to the transporter and neither of the parties – a consignor nor a consignee generates the E-Way Bill, the onus lies on the transporter to generate it.

When either of the parties generates the E-Way Bill, the recipient of the consignment is bound to either accept or reject it on the portal. In case there is no response (no action is taken) from the recipient within 72 hours, it shall be deemed to have been accepted. For generating an E-Way Bill from the portal, the registered party should have a portal login.

Why is it important?

The primary objective of GST is to unify India with a common in-direct taxation system. One of the most significant aspects of GST is the removal of the inter-state check posts – particularly the transit delays encountered in some states like Rajasthan, Maharashtra, Bihar or Jharkhand. It is expected that both the GST levy and E-Way Bill would weed out such transit delays and at the same time, helps in plugging issues related to tax evasion.

Technically speaking, every E-Way Bill that is generated by a consignor or a consignee is to be automatically updated in the GSTR1 (sales return) of the supplier, thus providing minimal scope for tax evasion on shipments. In the earlier tax regime, officials used to cross-check the way bills with the filed tax returns to verify whether all the consignments were covered within the tax net or not.

On the other hand, a single GST E-Way Bill for the movement of goods throughout the country is expected to save the lot of paperwork and do away with various inter-state clearances for consignors, consignees, and transporters. Earlier, every state used to frame its own rules for the transportation of goods from one place to another.

 Is it relevant to me?

As per a McKinsey report, logistical hurdles cost the Indian Economy an extra $45 billion or 4.3 per cent of GDP every year. Hence, any change in the existing regime that can provide even small benefits is appreciable. Also, the LPI Survey by World Bank states that the logistical costs in India are much higher (14%), compared to other major countries (6-8%). With the integration of GST E-Way Bill, it is expected that the logistics costs would get trimmed by 20 per cent. While the picture looks rosy on paper, it is completely dependent on the GST backbone to work perfectly to overcome any errors and mismatches, even when encountering heavy traffic.


What we expect is a smooth sailing for businesses through the introduction of this new GST E-Way Bill, despite minor glitches. This should become another milestone in the economic progress of the country, ensuring tax compliance at the highest level.

What is an e-way bill?

An e-way bill is a document that a person in charge of a conveyance carrying any consignment of goods of value exceeding Rs 50,000 is required to carry. It is a mandatory document that is generated from the GST Common Portal by registered persons or transporters who undertake movement of goods. A transporter needs to generate the e-way bill before the movement of goods commences.

Is there any scheme under GST for payment of taxes by small traders?

Composition levy is an alternative method of levying a tax that is designed for small taxpayers whose turnover is up to Rs 10 million. This scheme is optional and is meant mainly for small traders, manufacturers and restaurant owners. However, it is not available to a trader engaged in inter-state supplies. Further, a trader opting to discharge GST liability under the composition scheme will not be eligible to claim input tax credit of GST paid on inward supplies.

In the pre-GST regime, a special economic zone (SEZ) customer was required to provide Form A-2 to claim exemption from payment of service tax. Will a service provider be required to obtain a similar form from his customers for not charging GST?

Under the pre-GST regime, a service provider was not required to charge service tax on his invoice for services rendered to an SEZ customer if the latter provided Form A-2 wherein he was authorized to receive specified services from such service providers.However, under GST law, there has been a change of procedure.

Under this law, supplies to SEZs have been treated as zero-rated subject to execution of Letter of Undertaking/Bond by the service provider. GST law doesn’t require the SEZ customer to provide any specific form (such as Form A-2 under the service tax law).

If the GST rate on outward supply is less than the GST rate on inputs, what will be the treatment of input tax credit that gets accumulated? If the refund is available, then at what time can one apply and within what time will one get it?

GST law contains a specific provision wherein the supplier of goods or services can apply for a refund of input tax credit accumulated on account of inverted duty structure, except for a few categories.The refund can be applied for before the expiry of two years from the date on which the claim for a refund arises. Further, the supplier would be granted provisional refund within seven days from the receipt of an acknowledgment from the tax department.A person runs a grocery shop wherein he supplies goods worth Rs 50, Rs 200 and Rs 250 to three customers.

Under the GST regime, can he issue a consolidated tax invoice for all the supplies made at the end of each day?Under GST law, a separate tax invoice is not required to be issued in case the value of goods or services is less than Rs 200, subject to the condition that the recipient is not a registered person and he does not require such an invoice. In such cases, the registered person can issue a consolidated tax invoice for such supplies at the close of each day for all such supplies. But for supplies of Rs 200 or Rs 250, A will have to issue separate invoices.

At the time of filing GSTR-1, does one have to file invoice-wise details or can one file consolidated details if the supplies are made to unregistered persons?

GST law allows a registered person to file the details of outward supplies in a consolidated manner in cases of intra-state supplies made to an unregistered person or inter-state supplies to an unregistered person where the invoice value is up to Rs 250,000.
