What is E-way Bill? The Central Goods and Services Tax (Sixth Amendment) Rules, 2017, requires every person causing the movement of goods worth more than Rs. 50,000 from one State to the other to generate an e-Way or electronic Way bill for each such movement. DE-way bill is an electronic document (available to supplier /recipient/transporter) generated on the common portal evidencing movement of goods of consignment value more than Rs. 50,000/. Olt has two components- 1. Part A comprising of details of GSTIN of supplier & recipient, place of delivery (indicating PIN Code also), document (Tax invoice, Bill of Supply, Delivery Challan or Bill of Entry) number and date, value of goods, HSN code, and reasons for transportation. 2. Part B comprises of transport details-transport document number (Goods Receipt Number or Railway Receipt Number or Airway Bill Number or Bill of Lading Number) and Vehicle number for road.
The bill is intended as a mechanism to prevent leakage of GST by tracking the movement of goods from one party (and place) to another Transporters and other taxpayers will not be required to visit any tax office or checkpost under this system and the e-way bill can be generated electronically. The transporters can manage sub-users and allocate roles to them. Large transporters can declare their various offices as sub-users. There is provision for cancellation of arn e-way bill within 24 hours by the person who generated the e-Way Bill. The recipient can also reject the e-way bill within 72 hours of generation. The validity of an e-way bill is fixed as one day for every 100 km or part thereof. Implementation Postponed: The Govt said "In view of difficulties faced by the trade in generating e-way bill due to way bill, both for inter and intra-State movement of goods." It shall be made compulsory from a date to be announced.
Why it is being opposed? Lack of preparedness and possible harassment by tax officials citing compliance issues could hinder movement of trucks,. Though e-way bill forms are easy and intuitive and could be generated through a variety of platforms including a mobile app, SMS, web platform and API-based integration, multiple issues have been raised by the industry. The transportation industry is predominantly an offline industry. Expecting them to go online suddenly is difficult to cope with Transporters fear that unintended lapses on their part could lead to the imposition of heavy penalties. consignments could end up getting stranded mid-way due to drivers' inability to pay the fine at remote locations. Movement of project cargo or heavy cargo, which takes months to reach the destination, could suffer as a result of the e-way bill rule that mandates 100 km per day movement. Such cargo generally does not travel more than 20 km a day, transporters said o The e-way bill will create documentation problems and harassment citing non-compliance o It takes a long time to transport heavy lift cargo due to logistics issues and requirement of multiple permissions while in transit. o If, for some reason, the e-way bill would lapse, it would invite penalty. o The government must issue a blanket order to officials not to harass truck drivers in transit. If the driver has an e-way bill then [it is clear] there is no intention to cheat.
What is needed? Transporters have urged the government to ensure officials differentiate between errors in the e-way bill and intentional tax evasion Eighty lakh trucks transport goods across India. It is not possible to make everyone understand the way the e-way bill works. There will be errors and the government will levy penalty. So we need a platform that should address the errors and establish evasion. O The lower revenue collections encountered during the past few months despite an enhancement of the taxpayer base could possibly be due to the fact that some taxpayers are not paying the appropriate tax. While the e-way bill existed in some States even earlier, the countrywide introduction across all sectors is likely to pose documentation and system challenges initially to smaller businesses. OOne major issue highlighted by transporters is increased financial burden due to filing of e-way bills. o A majority of the small transporters who are driver-owners will find it difficult to generate e-way bills as the process requires comfort with using electronic medium such as apps. o Seeking professional help would only cost them more O In case of a breakdown in hilly areas or remote villages with no mobile connectivity, the e-way bill will not be easily updated. There is no clarity on the resolution of such issues in the rules There is lack of clarity on the issue of vehicle detention in the case of mis presentation of details such as price of goods. The responsibility should lie with either the consignee or the consignor without detaining the vehicle.
Introduction of Inspector Raj? Moreover, rules also give the right to inspect the vehicles at random( 138 B) which increases the chances of harassment by inspectors, transporters fear. OInspectors have the right to unload the entire consignment to check compliance. There is no guidance provided for genuine randomness as against targeted checks. However, the rules provide for redressal against any such harassment. o Still, implementation would be the key. o Going by historical antecedents, discretion leads to harassment and corruption, and rules could have done better by defining discretionary measures more tightly. With just the e-way bill number, all transactions can now be tracked and average waiting time for vehicles will now reduce, as verification processes will be online. The compulsory introduction of e-way bill may face initial glitches, but in the long-term, it will benefit not only the logistics industry, but the country as a whole.
