E-way bill facilitates faster travel
Transporters and drivers are finally starting to speak about their e-way bill experience. Compared to the long time it took to cross state borders, often stretching for hours together, the implementation of e-way bill is facilitating an easy travel through state borders. The big hurdle of state sales tax officials clearing the documents no longer exists, mention drivers. There have been instances of state sales tax officials asking to see the e-way bills, but these are rare and often accompanied by quick clearance. Rather than face harassment at state borders, drivers are now complaining about transport department officials and local traffic police harassment under one pretext or the other. Flying squads said a driver on the condition of not mentioning his name, flag down trucks, often leading to an amount of delay.
