Step By Step Guidance of GST E-Way Bill

What is GST E-Way Bill?

GST E-Way Bill is an electronically generated document which can be generated on the GSTN E-Way Bill Portal(common portal). A ‘movement’ of goods of more than Rs 50,000 from one place to another.

E-WayBill will also be allowed to be generated or canceled through SMS.

The implementation of e-way bills has been a matter of considerable deliberations in various GST Council’s meetings. In 24th meeting of the GST Council held on December 16, 2017, it was agreed that e-way bills trials would start from January 16, 2018 and mandatory implementation from February 01, 2018.

However, on Feb 1, 2018 the IT-platform set up to generate the e-way bills collapsed due to over load of 48 Lakh bills generated, which lead to postponement of the implementation.
