E-way bill system changes confusing, say transporters

The government’s decision to make some changes to the e-way bill system effective November 16, 2018, has not gone down well with transporters, who claim that it has not been communicated properly and has led to ‘complete confusion’.“When A sells a material to B, he raises an invoice and subsequently prepares an e-way bill. While on transit, if the vehicle breaks down or is delayed for some reason, then the original e-way bill expires. In the new system, there is no option for the transporter to move the material. System has been blocked [if you want to] raise another e-way bill with the same invoice details. This has led to complete confusion among transporters,” said Abhishek Gupta, chairman, legal & GST committee, Bombay Goods Transport Association (BGTA).With changes made by the National Informatics Centre which is handling the e-way bill project, the system has been formatted in such a way that if the consignor has generated one e-way bill on a particular invoice, then none will be allowed to generate one more e-way bill on the same invoice number.
