Eway bill under GST in Jharkhand


This article discusses Jharkhand's e-way bill under the GST.


Pre-E-way Bill era

Jharkhand is home to a sizable amount of mining, manufacturing, and trading activities that significantly contribute to the nation's economic development. Jharkhand has a mechanism to monitor the flow of goods before implementing the GST and the e-way bill. Permission in Form Sugam G/P/B was necessary for any interstate or intrastate movement of taxable goods and refunds. 


This was produced after browsing the Jharkhand business tax department's website. Prior online registration of the consignment is now required under GST for the electronic-way, or e-way bill to be used when moving goods valued more than Rs. 50,000 within or outside of a State. After the supplier and the transporter enter the required data on the GST site to generate an e-way bill, the recipient and the transporter will have access to a specific e-way bill number on the common portal.


E-way bill for sending goods outside the state

Through a directive issued by the Central Government on March 7, 2018, the interstate or cross-border movement of products has been integrated into the National e-way bill system as of April 1, 2018. Dealers must create an E-waybill on the platform E-waybill for Interstate transportation of products is operative from 01-Apr-2018 for any movement from Jharkhand to outside the state (vide Notification dated March 27 2018).


Stakeholders in generating Eway bill

The e-way bill was introduced to address the stakeholders' expectations and worries adequately. The e-way bill's four main stakeholders are listed below.

  1. Suppliers should create electronic waybills and reject any made in their name by a third party.

  2. Recipients should create their electronic waybills and reject any made in their name by a third party.

  3. Transporters create consolidated e-way bills and update the vehicle numbers for the e-way bills issued to them by the taxpayers for transportation.

  4. Verify the e-way bills and consignments sent with the e-way bills department officers.


E-way bill generation techniques

An electronic waybill can be made using any of the following methods:

  1. Using the online portal,

  2. Utilising a facility based on SMS

  3. Utilising the Android App

  4. Using Busy’s auto-generation of e-way bill feature.

Online Portal mode of generating E-way Bill

Dealers must go to the NIC Portal to generate e-way bills via the online portal. Before creating e-way bills to transfer goods, the dealers must first register on the platform using their GSTIN.


SMS Mode of generating E-way Bill

The user must have the registered cellphone number to register on the e-way bill portal. Please follow these instructions to activate. The e-way bill system lets users create e-way bills using an android application.


When a user chooses "For Android" under the "Registration" option, the system will automatically fill in the user's name and location when selecting the appropriate user from the drop-down menu. The user must install the Android software on the concerned user, enter the user's IMEI number, and save the information in the e-way bill system. Once protected, the concerned person can utilise the android programme to create an e-way bill.


Validity of E-Way Bill

The required distance to carry the items determines the e-way bill's validity. A one-day validity has been offered for every 100 KMs or portion of its travel in the event of ordinary vehicles or transit modes. Additionally, one day's validity is provided for every 20 KMs of movement for Over Dimensional Cargo vehicles. Further, this validity ends at midnight on the last day.

Rejecting E-Way Bill

Suppose the recipient has registered on the common portal. In that case, the contents of the created e-way bill must be made available to them so they can indicate whether the recipient accepts or rejects the consignment covered by the e-way bill. The system makes it easier for the registered user to understand how many e-way bills have been generated against him by other registered users. If these e-way bills are not his, the user can refuse them. Suppose the consignment specified in the e-way bill has yet to be received by the recipient. He can reject them using this option. The user must know the number of the e-way bill he wants to reject. Suppose the acceptance or rejection is communicated after 72 hours of establishing the e-way bill or the delivery of the products, whichever comes first. It is then assumed that he has agreed to the terms.


Cancelling E-way Bill

E-way bills cannot be corrected after they have been generated. However, you have 24 hours to cancel it after it's generated. For instance, the user can cancel the e-way bill if the goods are not being moved or a mistake was made in the entry. Before attempting to cancel an e-way bill, the user should have the number on hand.

  • When the user chooses the "Cancel" sub-option under "e-way bill," he must input the 12-digit e-way bill number and click "Go."

  • The user can cancel the e-way bill after providing a valid justification and viewing that specific e-way bill.

  • It's forbidden to utilise the e-way bill once it's been cancelled.


Note: Once created, the EWB cannot be removed. However, within 24 hours of generation, the generator can cancel it. It cannot be revoked if an authorised officer has verified it. The e-way bill may be withdrawn if the products are not transported or transported per the information specified in the e-way bill.


The e-way bill must be supported by a robust implementation even though it was developed with decreased tax evasion, frictionless interstate transfer of goods, and minimal time lost at checkpoints in mind. If the implementation is appropriately handled, the e-way bill may be a potent tool for holding taxpayers accountable. The nation will get closer to a standard national e-way bill process, which will be very advantageous for all interstate suppliers, the quicker all States embrace and implement the e-way bill system.
