The 24th GST Council Meeting held today through video conferencing decides that Inter-State e-way Bill to be made compulsory from 1st of February, 2018;

The System to be ready by 16th of January, 2018; The Uniform System of e-way Bill for Inter-State as well as Intra-State movement will be implemented across the country by 1st June, 2018.

The 24th Meeting of the GST Council held today through video conference under the Chairmanship of the Union Minister of Finance and Corporate Affairs, Shri Arun Jaitley. It discussed about the implementation of e-way Bill system in the country. Till such time as the National e-way Bill is ready, the States were authorized to continue their own separate e-way Bill systems. However, it was represented by the trade and transporters that this is causing undue hardship in the Inter-State movement of goods and therefore, bringing in an early all India system of e-way Bill has become a necessity. The GST Council today reviewed the progress of readiness of hardware and software required for the introduction of nationwide e-way Bill System. After discussions with all the States, the following decisions were taken :-

i) The nationwide e-way Bill system will be ready to be rolled out on a trial basis latest by 16th January, 2018. Trade and transporters can start using this system on a voluntary basis from 16th January, 2018.

ii) The Rules for implementation of nationwide e-way Bill system for Inter-State movement of goods on a compulsory basis will be notified with effect from 1st February, 2018. This will bring uniformity across the States for seamless inter-State movement of goods.

iii) While the System for both inter-State and intra-State e-way Bill generation will be ready by 16th January, 2018, the States may choose their own timings for implementation of e-way Bill for intra-State movement of goods on any date before 1st June, 2018. There are certain States which are already having system of e-way Bill for intra-State as well as inter-State movement and some of those States can be early adopters of national e-way Bill system for intra-State movement also. But in any case, the Uniform System of e-way Bill for inter-State as well as intra-State movement will be implemented across the country by 1st June, 2018.

    Dealer’s experience about functioning of GSTN portal has been a nightmare so far. Is the government confident of the portal taking load of all bills above Rs.50,000/- w.e.f.1st February,2018? If the system crashes as during filing of returns, will the nation’s economy not come to standstill? Mr. Jaitley, please take India’s ground realities in consideration. Or is it that the government wants only big multinationals and Indian Corporate to survive and kill MSMEs and small and middle level trade?

  3. V.K.Dadoo says:

    Kindly let the GST filing of different returns take shape. presently, all payment according to GSTR-3B are being made, and with no filing of the GSTR-1, GSTR-2 etc. , the customers are holding the payment of Lacs of Rupees of the Suppliers. So much so that the suppliers/Job Workers are feeling extraordinary cash crunch.
    Let the Government settle the things one by one. GST is an extraordinary change from the hundreds of years old system, and people will take time to get used to it.

  4. V.Muthukumar says:

    It is bit confusing. If is to be implemented by 1st Feb, all states should follow. Then where is the question of Jun-1st ? Why to differentiate again intra state and Interstate ?
    Already states are having different mechanism in E-way bills and harrasing people, (Particularly Andhra, where they don’t accept other states e-way bills and collecting 100% penalty), this gives room for again a pain to the dealers.

    Either GST council to implement meticulously without any trials or be flexible during trial, which is not in the case of Andhra.
