VAHAN-e-Way Bill Integration

Blocking and Unblocking of E-way Bill
E-way bill generation is blocked for taxpayers who have not filed their returns for the previous two consecutive months/quarters.
Thus, if a taxpayer has not filed GSTR-3B for two or more consecutive months, then he/she cannot generate e-way bills to do dispatches and receive goods, resulting in a standstill.
Only when a taxpayer files GSTR-3B, the e-way bills will get unblocked on the next day.
