If you’re a business owner in India who transports goods worth more than Rs. 50,000, you’ll need to register on the E-way bill portal to generate electronic waybills for the movement of goods. Registration is a simple process that requires a few basic details about your business. Once registered, you can generate e-way bills online and your transporter needs to carry them along when moving goods across the country.
In this article, we’ll guide you through the step-by-step process of registering on the E-way bill portal.
E-way bill, short for ‘electronic way bill’, is a mandatory document that transporters are required to carry when transporting goods valued at more than Rs. 50,000, for both interstate and intrastate transport.
If you are a taxpayer or registered transporter, follow the steps below to complete your registration:
Step 1: Login to the e-way bill common portal home page
Step 2: On the home page, go to ‘Registration’ in the top menu
Step 3: On the registration form, enter your GSTIN and the captcha code
Step 4: After submitting the request, you will be redirected to the e-way bill registration form. The form automatically fills in the applicant’s name, trade name, address, and mobile number.
Step 5: Click on Send OTP and receive a code on your registered mobile number. After receiving the OTP, enter it into the system and then click on Verify OTP. By taking this action, the entered data and OTP will both be validated.
Step 6: Make a new user ID and password; type in the new user ID and select a password of your choice. If there is a mistake in the information you entered, the system verifies it and displays an error notice. The user ID and password will be generated once all the information has been entered accurately.
An unregistered transporter would have to use an alternative method for registering on the e-way bill portal by using the business details.
Step 1: Login to the e-way bill portal
Step 2: Click on Enrollment for Transporters
Step 3: The e-way bill registration form will be launched. The form will have some required fields that are marked with an asterisk (*) and some optional fields.
Step 4: After submitting your form, the e-way bill portal will generate a 15-digit Transporter ID or TRANS ID and the user credentials. This completes the e-way bill registration procedure.
The transporter can now give the client this 15-digit Transporter ID to include in the e-way bill. With the Transporter ID entered, the transporter can now access the consignment on the e-way bill portal and enter the vehicle number to move it.
When a registered receiver receives goods from an unregistered supplier, the registered receiver must follow all the instructions for generating an e-Way Bill as if he were the actual supplier of those goods. As a result, it is the receiver’s responsibility to generate the e-Way Bill.
Registering on the E-way bill portal is a crucial step for businesses involved in the transportation of goods. By following the step-by-step process outlined in this guide, you can easily register on the portal and generate E-way bills online. It is important to ensure that all the details provided during the registration process are accurate and up-to-date to avoid any issues during the transportation of goods. With the E-way bill portal, businesses can streamline their logistics operations and comply with the regulations set by the government of India.
