1. Introduction

1.1 Background

Introduction of Goods and Services Tax (GST) across India with effect from 1st of July 2017 is a very significant step in the field of indirect tax reforms in India. For quick and easy movement of goods across India without any hindrance, all the check posts across the country are abolished. The GST system provides a provision of e-Way Bill, a document to be carried by the person in charge of conveyance, generated electronically from the common portal. To implement the e-Way Bill system, ICT based solution is required. Hence, as approved by the Goods and Services Tax (GST) Council, a web based solution has been designed and developed by National Informatics Centre and it is being rolled out for the use of taxpayers and transporters. The offline tool has been developed to generate the bulk e-way bills by the tax payers and transporters.

2. Offline Method of e-Way Bill Generation

The e-Way Bill system provides a provision of offline method to generate the multiple e-way bills in one-go by the tax payers or transporters. This can be used by the two categories of tax payers. First, those tax payers who have automated their supplies but unable to use the API interface because of various reasons. Second, the tax payers/transporters who want to generate the e-way bills in one shot by entering the e-way bill details in one excel file as and when order comes. And after finalization of the entries, including may be vehicle number, generate the EWB number. This avoids making separate entries for each order in the EWB system to generate the EWB Number.

In this process, the taxpayer or transporter opens the EWB portal and downloads the formats provided under ‘Bulk Generation Tools’. This tool has been provided on the demand of the tax payers as alternative mechanism. This tool can be downloaded by the tax payer from ‘Help-> Tools-> Bulk Generation Tools’ option provided in EWB portal as shown below.

The taxpayer or transporter can download the excel file formats from Bulk Generation Tools for bulk upload of Bulk EWB Generation, Bulk Consolidated EWB Generation, Bulk Master Generation and Bulk Vehicle Number updation as shown below under ‘JSON Preparation Tools’ option. EWB Bulk Generation Tool allows the user to enter the requests in excel file offline, validate and convert the same into JSON file for bulk upload in the system.

Note: Bulk Generation instructions have been provided in the tool itself.

After entering the required data in the downloaded formats provided in ‘Bulk Generation Tools’ module, the tax payer or transporter logs in to the E-Way Bill system and uploads the file containing the multiple requests for EWB . The system then generates the EWB number for all these requests one-by-one and shows the result in table. Otherwise it shows error details. The table details can be cut and pasted into user’s system for further use and action.

    After generating Bulk EW and getting EW numbers in excel, it can be printed one by one only and it is very very time consuming.
    If there is an option to get the PDF files of all EW at a time like Form 402/403, please inform.
    Think that in case of print 500 Bulk EW at a time, it will take hours.
