Waybills in Telangana: Document applicable during VAT era

Government of Telangana is known to have consistently strengthened it’s Information Technology structure. This can be seen and felt in the shift from manual to automated Waybills in the region since December 2015. Waybills existed in the pre-GST regime also.

There were VAT Waybills and CST Waybills in the State. Printed Waybills in Form X or also known as Form 600, issued by State Government or Commissioner were required to be carried by every dealer who transported goods by a Goods Vehicle within the State, in original and duplicate copies. The original copy of Waybill had to be submitted to the Officer in charge at the first Checkpost through which the carrier passed.

Where the goods came into the State from any other State, then the Waybills generated in such other State along with the tax invoice or valid documents was accepted.

All dealers of the twin cities of Hyderabad and Secunderabad alongwith the R.R District had to use the online generated ewaybills and not the manual Waybills starting 1st December 2015. Manufacturers who had to transport goods could produce the gate-cum-invoice raised by them as the valid document or pass instead of the Waybill prescribed. He had to ensure that TIN was mentioned clearly on such Invoice.
