Auto calculation of route distance based on PIN code for generation of E -Way bill:
The system is getting enabled to auto calculate the route distance for movement of goods, based on the Postal PIN codes of source and destination locations, given by the user. The e-waybill system will calculate and display the actual distance between the supplier and recipient addresses. However user is allowed to edit the distance shown, but it will be limited to 10% more than the displayed distance. In case, source PIN and destination PIN are same, the user can enter up to a maximum of 100 kms only.
Blocking of generation of multiple E-Way Bills on one Invoice/document:
Generation of multiple e-way bills based on one invoice, by any party – consignor, consignee or transporter will not be allowed from now onwards . That is, once E-way Bill is generated with an invoice number, then none of the parties – consignor, consignee or transporter, can generate another E-Way Bill with the same invoice number.
Extension of E-Way Bill in case Consignment is in Transit:
From now the validity extension will be allowed however during the extension of validity of the e-way bill, the user will be prompted to answer whether the Consignment is in Transit or in Movement. On selection of In Transit, the address details of the transit place need to be provided by user. On selection of In Movement the system will prompt user to enter Place and Vehicle details. For calculation of distance for movement and validity date of an E-way Bill, in both these scenarios, the destination PIN will be considered from the PART-A of the E-way Bill.
Blocking of Interstate Transactions for Composition dealers:
Composition tax payers are not allowed to do Interstate supply as a result taxpayers will not be allowed to generate e-way bill for inter-state movement of goods.
Government is now trying to make E-way bill system more practical and hassle free step by step , we will assess some more betterment of this system in near future.
