E-way Bill Overview
An electronic waybill for the transport of commodities is known as an E-way bill. It aids in the tracking of goods flow following GST regulations and aids in the prevention of tax evasion.
It’s created by a registered GST taxpayer who wants to move items worth more than Rs 50,000 using the E-way bill platform.
If an unregistered individual supplies products inward, he must also produce an E waybill.
SMS, Android App, and API site-to-site connectivity will all be used to create or cancel E-way bills. A specific E-way Bill Number (EBN) is available to the provider, receiver, and transporter after the E-way bill is produced.

The below are the requirements for creating an E-way bill:
- Invoice/ Bill of Supply/ Challan registration on the E-Way Bill platform in relation to the shipment of goods.

How to Generate Eway Bills on Eway bill Portal – FAQs
Q1. When I try to register, the machine says there is no contact number associated with this GSTIN in the GST Common Portal; what should I do?
This means that the e-way bill scheme was unable to obtain the GSTIN’s contact information (mobile number and email address) from the GST Popular Portal (www.gst.gov.in). Call the GST helpdesk at 0120-4888999.
Q2. Why is it necessary for the transporter to sign up for the e-way bill system?
Any transporters may not be licensed under the Goods and Services Tax Act, but they are responsible for the transportation of goods for their customers. To obtain a 15-digit Unique Transporter Id, they must register on the e-way bill portal.
Q3. What is TRANSIN (Transporter Identification Number)?
TRANSIN, or Transporter id, is a 15-digit unique number provided by the EWB system for unregistered transporters after they enroll in the system. It is based on state code, PAN, and Checksum digit and is identical to GSTIN format. This TRANSIN, or Transporter id, can be exchanged by the transporter with his customers, who can use it to generate e-waybills while assigning goods to him for transportation.
Q4. How does an unregistered transporter obtain his or her special identifier or transporter identifier?
For enrolment on the EWB portal, the transporter must have the necessary information. After providing the required information, the EWB device generates the transporter id. The user manual contains the specifics of the material that must be included.
Q5. If I forget my username and password, what do I do?
If you forget your username or password, use the portal’s ‘Forgot Username’ or ‘Forgot Password’ feature to retrieve your username or generate a new password. The user must enter some information after authenticating with an OTP, after which the user will be given a username and password.
