Over the last few blogs, we have taken you through all the options available to you under the “E-way Bill” tab, on the main menu of the e-way bill portal. We are now in a position to seamlessly navigate the portal as far as generating a new e-way bill, generating a bulk e-way bill, updating the vehicle number in an e-way bill, printing an e-way bill and cancelling an e-way bill is concerned. In this blog, as well as the next, we will deal with how to generate consolidated e-way bill, as well as how to cancel, print and update it. Before we go into the portal features, let us understand more about the utility of the consolidated e-way bill.

What is a Consolidated E-way Bill?

A consolidated e-way bill is generated whenever the supplier feels the need to transport multiple consignments of goods in a single vehicle. In other words, if a single vehicle is transporting multiple consignments belonging to the same supplier, there is no need to deal with separate e-way bills for each consignment, but rather a consolidated e-way bill may be generated. This will not only make things simple for the supplier, but also for the transporter, who will then need to carry a single document.

    • • Log on to www.ewaybill.nic.in
