NEW CHANGES IN E-WAY BILL SYSTEM
Recently, the e-way bill system has been empowered with various fruitful changes. The e-way bill system now would be empowered to auto calculate the route distance based on the PIN code; knowing the distance between two PIN codes; blocking of generation of multiple e-way bills based on the single invoice; facility to extend the e-way bill in case of consignment in transit or movement; report reflecting list of e-way bill which is about to expire. The said changes along with its effect thereon are being explained in the present article.
The e-way bill system would now be equated to auto-calculate the route distance based on the PIN code of source location and the PIN code of the destination locations i.e. the e-way bill system would calculate and display the actual distance between the supplier and the recipient based on the PIN code entered.
Some of the important features which need to be noted are mentioned herein-below –
The user in order to know the distance between the source and destination need to follow the below mentioned steps –
After entering the above details, click on the ‘Go’ icon.
On following the above steps, the approximate distance between the source and destination would be displayed.
Adopting the policy of ‘One Invoice, One E-way Bill’, now, the same would be incorporated in the e-way bill system also.
Once the e-way bill is generated with an invoice number, then, the e-way bill system will not allow generating another e-way bill for the same invoice number.
None of the party i.e. consignor, consignee or the transporter would be permitted to generate another e-way bill using the same invoice number.
Now, the e-way bill system would be enabled with the facility to extend the e-way bill when the goods are in transit. The goods in transit mean that the goods could be on the road or in the warehouse.
The user needs to follow the below mentioned steps –
E-way Bill Module > Extend Validity > Enter e-way bill Number to fill the form
While going for extension of the e-way bill, the user needs to answer whether the consignment is in transit or in movement.
In case the consignment is in transit, the user needs to provide the details of the address of the transit place and in the case in movement is selected, the user needs to provide the vehicle details like vehicle number and vehicle type from where the extension is required.
The e-way bill has now been equated with a system through which the taxpayer / transporter can analyze the list of e-way bill which is about to expire within a period of 4 days. Such a report would facilitate the taxpayer / transporter to ensure that the goods would reach the destination within the validity time.
The taxpayer / transporter need to follow the below mentioned step in order to generate the report reflecting the list of e-way bill which is about to expire –
Reports > My EWB Reports > EWB about to expire.
