Enhancements in E-Way Bill System w.e.f 16.11.2018


National Informatics Centre (NIC), an agency to handle E-Way Bill system is regularly working for the betterment of this system. In its continuous efforts to make it better, NIC has brought following improvements in E-Way Bill System w.e.f. 16/11/2018:-

Checking of duplicate generation of e-way bills based on same invoice number : 

The e-way bill system is enabled in a way that if the consignor has generated one e-way bill on the particular invoice, then he or consignee or transporter will not be allowed to generate one more e-way bill on the same invoice number. If the transporter or consignee has generated one e-way bill on the consignor’s invoice, then if any other party (consignor, transporter or consignee) tries to generate the e-way bill, the system will alert that there is already one e-way bill for that invoice, and further it allows him to continue, if he wants.

CKD/SKD/Lots for movement of Export/Import consignment : 

CKD/SKD/Lots supply type can now be used for movement of the big consignment in batches, during Import & Export also. Delivery challan and tax invoice need to accompany goods as prescribed in Rule 55 (5) of CGST Rules, 2017.

Some exports or imports will be in big consignment and may not be moved in one go from the supplier or to the recipient. Hence, CKD/SKD/Lots supply can be used for this.

For CKD/SKD/Lots of Export consignment, the ‘Bill To’ Party will be URP or GSTIN of SEZ Unit with state as ‘Other Country’ and shipping address and PIN code will be of the location (airport/shipping yard/border check post) from where the consignment is moving out from the country.

For CKD/SKD/Lots of Import consignment, the ‘Bill From’ Party will be URP or GSTIN of SEZ Unit with state as ‘Other Country’ and dispatching address and PIN code will be of the location (airport/shipping yard/border check post) from where the consignment is entered the country.

Shipping address in case of export supply type : 

For Export supply type, the ‘Bill To’ Party will be URP or GSTIN of SEZ Unit with state as ‘Other Country’ and shipping address and PIN code can be given as the location (airport/shipping yard/border check post/ address of SEZ), from where the consignment is moving out from the country.

Dispatching address in case of import supply type : 

For Import supply, the ‘Bill From’ Party will be URP or GSTIN of SEZ Unit with state as ‘Other Country’ and dispatching address and PIN code can be given as the location (airport/shipping yard/border check post/ address of SEZ), from where the consignment is entering the country.

Enhancement in ‘Bill To – Ship To’ transactions : 

EWB generation is now categorized to four types now:- Regular and Bill to Ship to, Bill from Dispatch from & combination of both.

There are four types of ‘Bill To – Ship To’ transactions. These types depend upon the number of parties involved in the billing and movement of the goods. The following paras explain the same.

o Regular: This is a regular or normal transaction, where Billing and goods movement are happening between two parties – consignor and consignee. That is, the Bill and goods movement from consignor to consignee takes place directly.

o Bill To – Ship To: In this type of transaction, three parties are involved. Billing takes places between consignor and consignee, but the goods move from consignor to the third party as per the request of the consignee.

o Bill From – Dispatch From: In this type of transaction also, three parties are involved. Billing takes places between consignor and consignee, but the goods are moved by the consignor from the third party to the consignee.

o Combination of both: This is the combination of above two transactions and involves four parties. Billing takes places between consignor and consignee, but the goods are moved by the consignor from the third party to the fourth party, as per the consignee’s request.

Changes in Bulk Generation Tool : Facility of EWB generation through the Bulk Generation Tool has been enhanced. New Columns have been added in Bulk Generation Tool.
