Over 1.7 Lakhs e-way bills generated on 1st April 2018
After the launch of e-ways bill, businesses and transporters have to produce before a GST inspector e-way bill for moving goods worth over Rs 50,000 from one state to another.
As per the statement of Finance Ministry,10,96,905 taxpayers have registered on e-way bill portal till date and19,796 transporters, who are not registered under GST, have enrolled themselves on the e-way bill portal.
The e-way bill provision of the goods and services tax (GST) was first introduced on February 1 2018, but its implementation was put on hold because the system developed glitches in generating permits. The system developed a snag when several states also started generating intra-state e-way bills on the portal.
Post this technical glitch, the platform has been made more robust so that it can handle load of as many as 75 lakh inter-state e-way bills daily without any glitch.
