Jharkhand, like all Indian states, must implement the e-way bill system under the GST. The e-way bill is a document that must be generated electronically and accompanies the movement of goods from one place to another. It contains information about the goods being transported, the value of the goods, the destination of the goods, and the vehicle used to transport the goods.
The e-way bill is required for transporting goods valued at over Rs. 50,000, whether for intrastate or interstate transport. The Jharkhand government has set up a separate portal to generate e-way bills, which registered taxpayers can access. The portal allows for the generation of e-way bills by filling out an online form, which requires information about the supplier, the recipient, the goods being transported, and the vehicle used for transportation.This article discusses Jharkhand’s e-way bill under the GST.
Before GST, Jharkhand already had a system in place to track the movement of goods within and out of the state. Dealers had to generate Form Sugam G / Sugam P / Sugam B from the Commercial Tax Department’s website. However, since the introduction of GST and the E-Way Bill system, things have changed. Transporters must now carry a valid e-way bill when moving goods worth more than INR 50,000 within or outside the state. To generate the e-way bill, the user must first register on the e-way bill common portal. The supplier and transporter need to enter the pertinent details on the GST portal to generate the e-way bill. A unique 12 digit e-way bill number is generated for every e-way bill.
There are four main stakeholders involved in generating e-way bills, as listed below:
Both the supplier as well as the recipient can create e-way bills as well as reject e-way bills that have been created against their GSTIN, but do not belong to them.
The transporter is responsible for generating the e-way bill if neither the supplier nor the recipient has generated one. He can also generate consolidated e-way bills, and he is also responsible for updating the vehicle information in Part B of the e-way bills that he has been assigned by the taxpayer.
The department officer is responsible for verifying the e-way bills and checking for any discrepancies between the details mentioned in the e-way bill and the actual goods being transported. Officers are authorised to take legal action if any discrepancy is found.
