PCQuest - - CONTENTS -

All states shall have to com­pul­so­rily im­ple­ment the na­tional e-way bill sys­tem for in­tra-state move­ment of goods by June 1.

“As per the de­ci­sion of the GST Coun­cil, the states may choose any date be­fore June 1 for im­ple­ment­ing the na­tional e-way bill sys­tem for in­tra-state move­ment of goods... but all states shall im­ple­ment it lat­est by June 1,” says Min­is­ter of State for Fi­nance Shiv Pratap Shukla.

In view of the dif­fi­cul­ties faced by the traders in gen­er­at­ing the e-way bill due to ini­tial tech­no­log­i­cal glitches, it was de­cided by the GST Coun­cil to ex­tend the trial phase for gen­er­a­tion of e-way bills, both for in­ter­state and in­tra-state move­ment of goods.

In its Fe­bru­ary 24 meet­ing, a group of min­is­ters headed by Bi­har Deputy Chief Min­is­ter Sushil Modi rec­om­mended April 1 as the date for com­pul­sory im­ple­men­ta­tion of the sys­tem for in­ter-state goods move­ment.

Un­der the GST regime, an e-way bill needs to be gen­er­ated and car­ried for move­ment of all goods val­ued at over Rs 50,000.
