GST EWay Bill is a document used to track the goods in transit. The EWay bill was introduced under the goods and service tax. As per the GST regime, any individual who is registered under goods and service tax has to pass an EWay Bill. It is mandatory when the individual is transporting goods worth INR 50,000.

When you generate an EWay Bill, you will receive a unique EWay Bill number. This Number is allocated to the supplier, transporter, and recipients.

EWay Bill generation 

You can access your EWay Bill in the online portal of goods and service tax. But before that, you need to make sure that your API access is active on the GST portal. Once you access your API, Your EWay module will be activated. You can create an EWay bill. You can also retrieve the data from an existing EWay bill. Once you generate your EWay Bill, the person who is in charge of transportation must carry the below documents.

1) Invoice

2) Delivery challan

3) Invoice reference number from the GST portal; you can obtain it by uploading a photocopy of the GST tax invoice issued in Form GST INV-1

4) Copy of the EWay Bill; it should be either physically or mapped to RFID of the vehicle

If a person registered under GST wishes to move goods using his own/ hired vehicle, then the person can generate the EWay Bill in the Form GST INS-1 or on the common portal of the GST. But when a transporter involved in the movement of goods, they must provide all the details in part B of the form GST INS-1. The GST regime allows the transporter to generate the EWay Bill, even if the value of the goods is less than INR 50,000.

Validity of the EWay Bill

The EWay Bill that you generate is only valid until a particular time. This validity is computed based on distance traveled by the goods. The over-dimensional cargoes that travel less than 20 KMS will get the validity of EWay Bill up to 1 Day. And for every extra 20 KMS, the validity of the EWay Bill adds one extra day.

Similarly, the conveyance that is not over-dimensional cargo and travels less than 100 KMS has the validity of EWay Bill up to 1 day. For every extra 100KMS, you will get one day extra.
