After the successful rollout of E-Way Bill in the country, the Central Board of Indirect taxes and Customs (CBIC) last day updated a set of Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) on the topic e-way bill with a view to help the taxpayers.
As per the FAQs, The common portal for generation of the e-way bill is https://ewaybillgst.gov.in.
For persons who are unable to get OTP, the Board directs them to check if they have activated ‘Do Not Disturb (DND)’ facility on their mobile or their service provider network may be busy. Taxpayers can also use OTP, which is sent on your email-id, it said.
It further clarified that all the registered persons under GST need to register on the portal of the e-way bill using his GSTIN. “Once GSTIN is entered, the system sends an OTP to his registered mobile number, registered with GST Portal and after authenticating the same, the system enables him to generate his/her username and password for the e-way bill system. After generation of username and password of his/her choice, he/she may proceed to make entries to generate the e-way bill,” it said.
From April 1st, 2018 onwards, transporters and businesses have to carry Electronic or E-way bill for the movements of Goods. Under the Goods and Services Tax regime, the businesses that carry goods having a worth more than 50000 should have to keep E-way bill for inter-state movements of goods.
To ensure a fool-proof system, the GSTN has activated only that facility on its portal where the e-way bill can be generated when goods are transported from one state to another by either road, railways, airways or vessels.
GST Network had advised all the transporters to register with the portal for trial on how to generate e-way bills. Now the system developed after a series of a test so that it doesn’t create any obstacles during its operations. To Read the full text of the Order CLICK HERE
