Enhancements in e-Way Bill System

Following are the enhancements in e-Way Bill System:
• Auto calculation of distance based on PIN Codes for generation of e-Way Bill.
• Knowing the distance between two PIN codes
• Blocking the generation of multiple e-Way Bills on one Invoice/Document.
• Extension of e-Way Bill in case the consignment is in Transit/Movement.
• Report on list of e-Way Bills about to expire.

1. Auto calculation of distance based on PIN Codes

 

e-Way bill system has enhanced with auto calculation of distance between the source and destination, based on the PIN Codes. The e-waybill system will calculate and display the estimated motorable distance between the supplier and recipient addresses.

 

2. Knowing the distance between two PIN codes

Another way for the taxpayer to know the distance between source and destination is to go to the eway bill system homepage (http://ewaybillgst.gov.in). Place the cursor on “Search” to view the
various options available and select “PIN to PIN Distance”.
PIN to PIN distance screen will appear where the user enters “Dispatch From” and “Ship To” Pin
codes to show approximate distance between the two locations.

 

3. Blocking the generation of multiple e-Way Bills on one Invoice/Document

Based on the representation received by the various stakeholders, the government has decided not
to permit generation of multiple e-way bills based on one invoice, by any party – consignor,
consignee and transporter.

Which means, if the e-way Bill is generated once with a particular invoice number, then none of the parties – consignor, consignee or transporter, can generate the e-Way Bill with the same invoice number. One Invoice, One E-Way Bill policy will be followed.

4. Extension of e-Way Bill in case the Consignment is in Transit/Movement

The transporters had proposed to incorporate the provision to extend the e-way Bill, when the
goods are in Transit/Movement. The taxpayer or the transporter can login to the e-Way Bill portal
(https://ewaybillgst.gov.in/) and navigate through the menu as illustrated below to reach the form

 

5. Report on list of e-Way Bills about to expire soon

Taxpayers or transporters can now view the list of e-Way Bills about to expire in a period of 4 days
(From current date (T) then (T)-1, (T)+1, (T)+2). They can keep track of expiry dates for each of the consignments generated.
