In our previous blogs, we took you through the process of obtaining registration on the GST e-way bill portal, irrespective of whether you are a registered supplier or recipient or an unregistered transporter. In this blog, as well as the ones to follow, we will understand how to generate e-way bills on the e-way bill portal. The topic in itself is very extensive and the GST Council has also provided multiple modes of e-way bill generation, each of which will be discussed in detail in our blogs.

      • On doing so, the e-way bill entry form will open up, containing numerous fields. While most of the fields are non-compulsory, certain mandatory fields will be marked – either with a red dot or with a green dot. The fields marked with a red dot will be mandatory for e-way bill, whereas the fields marked with a green dot will be mandatory for Form GSTR-1. All mandatory fields will be marked with a * in this blog, for your reference
      • The e-way bill entry form can broadly be divided into 3 parts:
        • Transaction Details
        • Item Details

            • Quantity
            • Unit
            • Value / Taxable Value (Rs.)*
            • Tax Rate (C + S + I + Cess)* (where C – CGST, S- SGST, I- IGST)

            • Transporter ID*
            • Transporter Doc. No. & Date*
            • Vehicle No.* (To be filled only, if the goods are being moved directly by you. For e.g. if you are using your own private vehicle or a non-transporter vehicle, then you need to provide the vehicle no. of the same. You may enter this field directly, without entering “Transporter Name”, “Transporter ID” and “Transporter Doc. No. & Date”)
            • Click “Submit”

          generate-5

Once, the form is filled, the final e-way bill generation will be completed and forwarded to the concerned transporter login account, allowing the transporter to enter “Vehicle No.”, while the goods are getting moved. At the same time, the e-way bill portal will validate the values entered, and in case of any error, it will pop up an appropriate error message. If all is in order, your e-way bill in Form EWB-01 will be shown along with the unique 12 digit e-way bill number, as shown below:
