Learn about e-way bills and its requirements

e-Way Bills are required to be carried by the person in charge of the conveyance in which the consignment of goods is being transported only where the value of such consignment exceeds Rs. 50,000.

The following to be kept in mind while arriving at the value of consignment:

  • It includes the IGST or CGST & SGST, as the case may be
  • It excludes the value of the exempt supply of goods being carried in the conveyance, where the bill is issued for both taxable and exempt supply

e-Way Bills have to be generated by a Seller prior to the movement of goods and have to be carried in either a physical copy or in electronic mode by the Person-in-charge of the consignment of goods for delivering it to the buyer’s place.

Other cases where e-way bills are required to be generated are by:

  • The Recipient/Buyer/Consignee, as the case may be, has to generate an e-way bill if they buy goods from an Unregistered Seller
  • The Transporters, In case of transport by road in a vehicle with multiple orders, where the aggregate value of consignment in a conveyance exceeds the limit of Rs.50,000 although individual order/Invoice is less than Rs 50,000. In this case, the first e-way bills (EWB-01) are to be generated against individual Invoices, and a consolidated e-way bill (EWB-02) is finally generated for the consignment
