An E-way bill refers to a document or receipt produced by a carrier having GST Registration that provides details and instructions on the delivery of the products, and the details are names of the delivery agent, destination and route, the point of origin of the delivery. In this article, we’ll learn how to Generate An E-way Bill.
The E-Way Bill is a conformity mechanism whereby the moving person submits the appropriate data via a digital interface before moving goods and creates an e-way bill from the GST portal that makes the GST Return Filing easy.
What is an E-Way Bill?
E-way bill is an online journal that records the movement of goods and is generated through the GST portal. It comprises a component of Part A which includes the details of the recipient’s GSTIN, location of delivery (PIN code), number and date of the invoice or challan, the value of goods, HSN code, the number of the transport document, and the reasons for the transport; part B comprises the transport details; the part B comprises the details of the recipient’s goods GSTIN; (Vehicle number).
An e-way bill has two parts- Part A to be provided to the person responsible for moving goods with a value surpassing the value of Rs. 50,000/- and Part B (informative details of transport) to be provided to the person carrying the goods. If the products are carried as the consignor or recipient by an individual having GST Registration, that person is required to generate the e-way charging in part B on the GST common site.

Who should Generate it?
Any individual having GST Registration causing goods to move (that may or may not be for supply) with a consignment value of more than Rs 50000/- shall, following Article 138 of the CGST Rules of 2017, must submit and carry the e-way bill. If the transport occurs in a private or hired conveyance or through railways by air or by boat, the E-way bill shall be generated by a consignor or consignee himself. When the products are transferred to a transport carrier by road, the transport carrier shall generate an E-way bill. If the e-way bill is not generated by both the shipper and the receiver, with the value of the products above Rs.50,000/- then it is the transporter’s responsibility to generate it.
Furthermore, it was specified that the e-way bill shall be generated shall is generated on the principal, independent of the size of a shipment when commodities are transported by a principle in a single State to a worker located in another State.
In addition, where handmade products are carried from one State to the other, the bill shall be generated by such a person, irrespective of the value of the shipment, for the commodities exempt from the necessity for GST registration.
