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.

1. Route distance would be auto- calculated based on the PIN code –

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 is allowed to enter the actual distance as per the movement of goods, however, the difference would be limited to 10% more than the distance displayed by the system;
  • In case of same source PIN and destination PIN, the user would be allowed to enter maximum up to 100 KMS;
  • In case the PIN entered is incorrect, the e-way bill system would report the same as “INVALID PIN CODE’, however, the user is allowed to continue the same by entering the distance, but the consequence would be that the said e-way bill would be flagged for the review by the department.

2. Knowing the distance between two PIN codes –

The user in order to know the distance between the source and destination need to follow the below mentioned steps –

  • Visit site https://ewaybill.nic.in/;
  • Under the home page, navigate the path Search > Pin to Pin distance;
  • Following details need to be entered –
    • Dispatch from PIN code;
    • Ship to PIN code;
    • Enter the value shown in the image.

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.

3. Generation of multiple e-way bills will not be possible for a single invoice –

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.

4. Facility to extend e-way bill would be made available in case the consignment is in transit or movement –

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 –

  • Visit site https://ewaybill.nic.in/;
  • Click on Login icon and provide appropriate Username and Password;
  • Navigate the following path –

E-way Bill Module > Extend Validity > Enter e-way bill Number to fill the form

  • The user needs to select the option ‘Yes’ for extension of e-way bill and on selecting ‘Yes’, Transportation details i.e. Part B would appear.

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.

5. Report reflecting e-way bill which is about to expire –

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 –

  • Visit site https://ewaybill.nic.in/;
  • Click on Login icon and provide appropriate Username and Password;
  • Navigate the following path –

Reports > My EWB Reports > EWB about to expire.
