Clarity on e-way bill on moving goods from dry to sea ports Awaited by Exporters
Exporters are now waiting for clarity from the government on the functioning of the e-way bill when goods move from dry ports to sea ports for export and when they move between special economic zones within the same state. For the same many exporters have sent letter to the finance ministry also. Exporters asked if any exemption in customs clearance would be given to goods when they move from inland container depots to ports on the lines of such relief given to imports. Exporters have cited confusion on the number of e-way bills needed in case an exporter places the order on a supplier who directly dispatches the goods to the port for exports. The query is if two bills would be required in such a scenario-—one from supplier to buyer and other from buyer to overseas seller or if one e-way bill with destination to the port will suffice.
