How to Generate E-Way bill

E-way bill has to be generated from E-way bill website

There are two parts of the E-way bill.

Part A and Part B

Part-A :- The registered person who moves the goods is required to file Part A of the E-way bill before starting the movement of goods. In Part A, it is important to mention the transporter ID or vehicle number along with the invoice details. After Part A of the e-way bill is filed, no modification can be made in it. On filing Part A of the E-way bill, you will generate a unique number which will be valid for 72 hours to update Part B of the E-way bill.

Part-B :- After Part-A is filed by the supplier or receiver, Part-B is filed by the transporter. As long as the time limit of the E-way bill has not expired, there is no limit on the number of times it can be updated. But keep in mind that the actual movement of the vehicle should match the description of the described vehicle.

When an unregistered transporter enrolls himself on the e-way bill portal, Transporter ID is issued to him. This Transporter ID enables the transporter to generate E-way bills at any time.

The transporter can update Part B of the e-way bill. The reason for this could be anything like transferring the goods from another vehicle if the vehicle breaks down or if more than one transporter is involved in taking the consignment to the end consignee.
