Inter-State e-way Bill to be made compulsory from 1st February, 2018 : GST Council

The Uniform System of e-way Bill for Inter-State as well as Intra-State movement will be implemented across the Country by 1st June, 2018

NEW DELHI: The 24th Meeting of the GST Council was held under the Chairmanship of the Union Minister of Finance, Shri Arun Jaitley. It discussed about the implementation of e-way Bill system in the Country. Till such time as the National e-way Bill is ready, the States were authorized to continue their own separate e-way Bill systems. However, it was represented by the trade and transporters that this is causing undue hardship in the Inter-State movement of goods and therefore, bringing in an early all India system of e-way Bill has become a necessity.

The GST Council has reviewed the progress of readiness of hardware and software required for the introduction of nationwide e-way Bill System.

After discussions with all the States, the following decisions were taken :-

i) The nationwide e-way Bill system will be ready to be rolled out on a trial basis latest by 16th January, 2018.

Trade and transporters can start using this system on a voluntary basis from 16th January, 2018.

ii) The Rules for implementation of nationwide e-way Bill system for Inter-State movement of goods on a compulsory basis will be notified with effect from 1st February, 2018. This will bring uniformity across the States for seamless inter-State movement of goods.

Iii) While the System for both inter-State and intra-State e-way Bill generation will be ready by 16th January, 2018, the States may choose their own timings for implementation of e-way Bill for intra-State movement of goods on any date before 1st June, 2018. There are certain States which are already having system of e-way Bill for intra-State as well as inter-State movement and some of those States can be early adopters of national e-way Bill system for intra-State movement also. But in any case, the Uniform System of e-way Bill for inter-State as well as intra-State movement will be implemented across the Country by 1st June, 2018.
