Multi Vehicle Option for e-Way bill has been introduced wherein the consignment of one e-way bill has to be moved in multiple vehicles, after moving to transshipment place.
For example, an e-way bill is generated and needs to be moved from A to C. Here, the consignment moves from A to B via Rail or bigger vehicle. Now, it is not possible to move the consignment from B to C in the same mode of transportation due to unavailability of that mode or may be due to hilly region where big vehicles cannot be used. In such cases, the consignment needs to be moved in multiple smaller vehicles.
Steps to Multi Vehicle Option for e-Way bill :
1. First generate the e-way bill with source and destination as per the document/invoice.
2. Carry out the first leg of movement of the consignment up to the transshipment.
3. Choose the ‘Change to Multi-vehicle’ option and update the e-way bill for multi-vehicle movement. Here, the total quantity of the consignment and movement from and to place for the multiple vehicles requirement has to be entered
4. Now, when the consignment has been loaded to the smaller vehicle, update the ‘Part-B’ of the e-way bill with the vehicle number, along with the quantity loaded, and move the consignment.
5. Step No 4 may be repeated till total quantity is loaded and moved. The system will not allow the quantity to be shipped in multiple vehicles more than what has been declared while marking the e-way bill for mulit-vehicle.
Select the ‘Change to Multi Vehicle’ option from the menu and enter e-way bill number to be changed to multiple vehicles for further movement and the system shows the details for e-way bill.
Here, confirm for the multiple vehicles movement and enter the ‘from place’, ‘to place’ , quantity of the consignment and reason to go for multi-vehicle. Once it is submitted, the e-way bill is changed to the multi-vehicle movement.
