What is an E-Way Bill?

An E-way bill is a receipt or document generated on the e-way bill portal by either the consignor or consignee that provides details and instructions for transporting a consignment of goods, including the name of the shipper, the recipient, the origin of the recipient, and their destination.

It is a compliance mechanism and the person (including seller/buyer/transporter) who causes the movement of goods uploads the relevant information through the digital interface and creates the E-Way bill on the GST portal before the transportation begins.

On the generation of an E-Way bill, a unique E-Way Bill Number (EBN) is generated which is made available to the supplier, recipient, and the transporter.

This TRANSIN or Transporter id can be shared by the transporter with his clients who may enter this number while generating e-waybills for assigning goods to him for transportation.
