24th council meeting on GST was held on 16th December 2017 under the chairmanship of Shri Arun Jaitley. The major decision taken in this council meeting was the introduction of an e-way bill system which will be effective nationwide from 1 Feb 2018 in order to track interstate movement of goods.


What is E way bill system?

Under E way bill system, No goods worth more than Rs 50,000 can be moved from one place to another without having Eway bill which will be generated online from GST web portal.

The e-way bill system has been introduced to curb the loopholes in tax evasion of GST. With the help of the digitized E-Waybill system, the government can easily track the transportation of goods from one state to another as well as within the state and combat with tax evasion. The e-bill system will be operational by National Informatics Center (NIC).

The Uniform rules shall be notified on e-way Bill system for Inter-State movement of goods and shall be effected from 1st February 2018 on a compulsory basis. Implementation of E-way bill rules by States will bring uniformity across all the States for seamless inter-State movement of goods.
