1.What is the need to create sub-users?

e-Way bill is to be generated for every consignment valuing more than Rs. 50,000. 

Many of the businesses have multiple places of business or head office and branch at different locations or work remotely from the principal place of business.

Generating e- Way Bill with a single login may be a challenge for them.

To overcome this challenge the concept of sub-users has been introduced.

A sub-user can use the same login credentials created originally and perform the actions as per the access that is given to them. For example, a sub-user may be allowed to generate e-Way Bill and restricted to reject any e-Way Bill.
