Large-sized business houses or logistic operators having many consignments across the country on a single day to handle would prefer a simple and time-saving system where they generate all the required e-way bills or Update vehicle details by a single file upload.
This can be made possible by using the facility of Bulk generation of e-way bills on the e-way bills portal.
A bulk e-way bill option is used when a user needs to generate multiple e-Way Bills/ consolidated e-way bills/update multiple e-way bills in one shot by a single upload.
In this article, we cover the step-by-step process to be followed for Bulk Generation of e-way bills /consolidated e-way bills on the e-way bill portal.

1. The e-way bill portal, in its release notes, has clarified that a suspended GSTIN cannot generate an e-way bill. However, a suspended GSTIN as a recipient or as a transporter can get a generated e-way bill.
2. the mode of transport ‘Ship’ has now been updated to ‘Ship/Road cum Ship’ so that the user can enter a vehicle number where goods are initially moved by road and a bill of lading number and date for movement by ship. This will help in availing the ODC benefits for movement using ships and facilitate the updating of vehicle details as and when moved on road.

The CBIC in Notification 15/2021-Central Tax has notified that the blocking of GSTINs for e-Way Bill generation is now considered only for the defaulting supplier’s GSTIN and not for the defaulting recipient or the transporter’s GSTIN.
Prerequisites to bulk generate e-Way Bills/consolidated e-Way Bills are:
Templates are available for following:
1. To bulk-generate Eway bills
You can use either of the below two methods of preparing the data file for uploading on the portal to generate Bulk EWB :
Step-2: Update the downloaded file with the requisite details. The file in JSON is ready for upload.
The tool helps convert the multiple e-Way Bills/Consolidated EWBs excel file into a single JSON file.
Step-3: Update the .xlsx file (excel template) with the requisite details.
Step-4: Use the .xlsm converter tool to convert the excel file into a JSON file.
The resulting file in JSON is ready for upload.
The second method i.e. using bulk converter tool to convert excel into JSON template is preferable over the first i.e. updating JSON template directly and using it. The reason being there is a validation that takes place when you convert the updated excel template into the JSON template, where any errors shall be reported to you for your corrections even before uploading the JSON file.
2. To bulk-update vehicle details
Download the ‘Vehicle No Updation JSON Preparation’ template from ‘Bulk Generation Tools’ available under ‘How to use’ from home page tabs.
Once the template is downloaded, fill up the details and validate the file by clicking on ‘Validate’ button in the excel file. After validating for any errors, Click on ‘Prepare JSON’. The JSON file is ready for use!
1. For Bulk-generation
Once the updated JSON File is ready for upload, Following steps can be followed for generating single EWB or consolidated EWB:
Step 1: Login using the username, password and entering the captcha code.
Step 2: Select ‘ Generate bulk’ under ‘E-waybill ’ option or ‘ Consolidated EWB’ option as per your choice, appearing on the left-hand side of the dashboard.

You can copy the resulting listed E-Way bills numbers and date of generation and paste the same in a document saved on your system for further action.
Errors if any appear against each EWB entry. Make corrections accordingly and process it again.
