2. For GST unregistered transporters

When is e-Way Bill registration required for unregistered transporters?

A Transporter is required to generate e- Way Bill if the Value of consignment value of goods of a single supplier exceeds Rs 50,000/-  or the  Value of all the goods in a vehicle through which goods are transported exceeds Rs 50,000/-

What is transporter ID?

Even if a transporter is unregistered, but the above limit of the value of goods is exceeding, the transporter has to generate e-Way Bills. Since he will not have a GSTIN, the concept of Transporter ID had been introduced.

Every unregistered transporter will be issued a Transporter ID, they will have to mention this ID on every e-Way Bill in place of GSTIN.

The Step-by-Step process to enrol on EWB portal has been explained in our article on Compliance with e-Way Bills by transporters.

By doing enrolment on e-Way Bill portal, the transporter gets a unique Transporter ID and a unique Username to operate on the e-Way Bill portal.

3. Action when goods received from an Unregistered Supplier

When goods are received from an unregistered supplier by a registered receiver, the receiver of goods has to comply to all the procedures of generating an e-Way Bill as if he is the actual supplier of those goods.

Hence, the receiver will have to generate an e-Way Bill.
