E Way Bill Portal Login Guide - https://ewaybillgst.gov.in (2024)

An E-Way Bill (EWB) is short for Electronic Way Bill. A person registered under GST is required to generate one if they wish to transport goods in a vehicle where the value exceeds Rs. 50,000 in a single invoice/bill or a delivery challan. The objective of introducing EWBs is to allow a common permit for the movement of goods throughout the country.

The E-Way Bill login portal is a common portal by the government for taxpayers and transporters to generate and cancel e-way bills.

Latest Update

4th August 2021

1st June 2021
1. The e-way bill portal, in its release notes, has clarified that a suspended GSTIN cannot generate an e-way bill. However, a suspended GSTIN as a recipient or as a transporter can get a generated e-way bill.
2. the mode of transport ‘Ship’ has now been updated to ‘Ship/Road cum Ship’ so that the user can enter a vehicle number where goods are initially moved by road and a bill of lading number and date for movement by ship. This will help in availing the ODC benefits for movement using ships and facilitate the updating of vehicle details as and when moved on road.

18th May 2021

3. Can the validity of an e-way Bill be extended?

The validity of an e-way bill can be extended if the consignment does not arrive at its destination on schedule either due to natural causes or any other genuine reasons. The taxpayer is required to apply for the extension on the e-way bill portal with the specifics of the delay, in order to be granted the extension. The person generating the e-way bill has to apply for validity extension either four hours before expiry or within four hours after its expiry.

4. How is the validity of an E-Way Bill calculated?

5. How to generate an e-way bill on the e-way bill portal?

A user will need to log in to the e-way bill portal to generate e-way bills. For a detailed step-by-step guide on e-way bill generation, check out our article – Guide to generate e-Way Bill online.

6. What are the prerequisites for e-way bill generation?

There are the prerequisites to bear in mind for generating an e-way bill:

  • Registration on the e-way bill portal.
  • The invoice/bill/challan related to the consignment of goods is required at hand.
  • If the transport is by road – The Transporter ID or the vehicle number is required.
  • If the transport is by rail, air, or ship – the Transporter ID, Transport Document Number, and date on the document is required.
7. Can an e-way bill be amended post generation?

Only Section B of the e-way bill can be edited/updated post-generation. If data has been entered incorrectly in Section A, the taxpayer will need to cancel the e-way bill and generate a new one.

8. Can an e-way bill be deleted or cancelled?

If the goods for which an e-way bill was generated were never transported or are not transported according to the details furnished in the e-way bill, then the generator of such e-way bills can cancel the e-way bill. You can find the procedure to cancel e-way bills in our article here.

The time limit to cancel an e-way bill is 24 hours post-generation of the e-way bill. Once an e-way bill has been cancelled, it becomes illegal to use such an e-way bill. Also, if an e-way bill has been verified by any empowered officer it cannot be cancelled.

9. In case e-invoicing applies to me, will my e-way bills get auto-generated?

An e-way bill consists of two parts, i.e. Part-A and Part-B. Part ‘A’ will get auto-generated at the time of generating an e-invoice, if the taxpayer opts to do so. The details to be mentioned in Part-A of the e-way bill are part of ‘Mandatory Fields’ in the e-invoice schema. When a taxpayer submits a request for an Invoice Reference Number (IRN), the Invoice Registration Portal (IRP) will pick up the details required for Part-A of the e-way bill and auto-populate the same in the e-way bill system.

The distance to be mentioned in Part-B of the e-way bill is also a ‘Mandatory Field’ in the e-invoice schema. The e-way bill system will auto-calculate the estimated motorable distance between the supplier and recipient as per the PIN codes entered in the e-invoice schema. The taxpayer can also enter the actual distance as per the movement of goods. However, it will be limited to 10% more than the auto-calculated distance displayed. If the PIN code of both source and destination is the same, the user can only enter a distance up to a maximum of 100 kilometres.

All the remaining fields of Part-B of the e-way bill are ‘Optional Fields’ in the e-invoice schema. It is at the discretion of the taxpayer, whether he wants to submit the same or not.

10. What is meant by the blocking of e-way bill generation facility? How can this be unblocked?

As per Rule 138E (a) and (b) of the CGST Rules, 2017, if a taxpayer fails to file GSTR-3B or CMP-08 for two or more consecutive tax periods on the GST portal, the same will be communicated to the e-way bill system and block the GSTIN. The GSTIN of such blocked taxpayers cannot be used for generating e-way bills either as consignor or consignee. It means the taxpayer will not be able to even receive goods if his GSTIN gets blocked.

Once the defaulting taxpayer files his GSTR-3B for the defaulting period, his GSTIN will get unblocked automatically within a day. A taxpayer can also submit an online application in Form EWB-05 to unblock his e-way bill generation facility. If he provides sufficient cause for non-filing of GSTR-3B, then such a request cannot be rejected without giving an adequate opportunity of being heard. To know more about the steps to unblock using EWB-05, read our article on Application in Form GST EWB-05 For Unblocking of e-Way Bill Generation.

11. What is the format of an e-way bill?
