Q 6. What is Multiple Vehicle on E Way Bill? (important for trnsporters)
Ans: On 11th June, 2018, the ‘Update multi-vehicle’ feature for E-way bill was enabled bringing in the much-needed declaration tool to reduce the efforts of many transporters. This option is available at the place of transhipment and not from supplier’s place.
It is used to update for moving a single consignment in multiple vehicles from transhipment place. Earlier, separate delivery challans had to be raised first for consignment moving in multiple-vehicles, followed by generation of separate E-way bills for the same. Now, using the multi-vehicle updation, the multiple conveyance details can be filled in after generating the E-way bill.
