Introduction-

The National Informatics Centre (“NIC”) has introduced certain new enhancements to the E-Way Bill (EWB) system dated April 23, 2019. The purpose of introduction of such enhancement is to ease the process of generation of E-Way Bill system by the taxpayers and the transporters. These are the following-

  • Auto calculation of distance based on PIN codes for generation of e-Way
  • Knowing the distance between two PIN codes
  • Blocking the generation of multiple e-Way Bills on one Invoice/Document.
  • Extension of e-Way Bill in case the consignment is in Transit/Movement.
  • Report on list of e-Way Bills about to
   
1. Auto calculation of distance based on PIN Codes-

E-Way bill system has enhanced with auto calculation of distance between the source and destination, based on the PIN Codes. The e-waybill system will calculate and display the estimated motorable distance between the supplier and recipient addresses as screen shown below-

User is allowed to enter the actual distance as per the movement of goods. However, it will be limited to 10% more than the auto calculated distance displayed. For example, if the system has displayed the distance between Place A and B, based on the PIN Codes, as 655 KMs, then the user is allowed to enter the actual distance covered up to 720KMs (655KMs + 65KMs).

 

Note-

  • In case, the PIN Code of both source and destination are same, the user is allowed to enter distance up to a maximum of 100KMs
  • If the PIN Code entered is incorrect, the system would alert the user as INVALID PIN CODE. However, he can continue entering the Further, the e-waybills having INVALID PIN CODES are flagged for review by the department.
   
2. Knowing the distance between two PIN codes-

Another way for the taxpayer to know the distance between source and destination is to go to the e- way bill system homepage (http://ewaybillgst.gov.in). Place the cursor on “Search” to view the various options available and select “PIN to PIN Distance”.

 

PIN to PIN distance screen will appear where the user enters “Dispatch From” and “Ship To” Pin codes to show approximate distance between the two locations (As screen below). Route distance calculation between source and destination uses the data from various electronic sources. This data employs various attributes, for example: road class, direction of travel, average speed, traffic data etc. These attributes are picked up from traffic that is on National highways, state highways, expressways, district highways as well as main roads inside the cities.

A proprietary logic is then used for approximating the distance between two postal pin codes. The distance thus derived is then provided as the motorable distance at that point of time.

3. Blocking the generation of multiple e-Way Bills on one Invoice/Document-

Based on the representation received by the various stake holders, the government has decided not to permit generation of multiple e-way bills based on one invoice, by any party - consignor, consignee and transporter. Which means, if the e-way Bill is generated once with a particular invoice number, then none of the parties - consignor, consignee or transporter, can generate the e-Way Bill with the same invoice number. One Invoice, One E-Way Bill policy will be followed.

 

For example, If the same consignor GSTIN is used to generate another e-Way Bill using the same document number and same document type, the system will not allow the generation and an error message as  screen shown below-

In both the scenarios above, the destination PIN will be considered from the PART-A of the e-way Bill for calculation of distance for movement and validity date. Route distance will be calculated as explained above.

   
5. Report on list of e-Way Bills about to expire soon-

Taxpayers or transporters can now view the list of e-Way Bills about to expire in a period of 4 days (From current date (T) then (T)-1, (T) +1, (T) +2). They can keep track of expiry dates for each of the consignments generated. User can login to the e-Way Bill portal (https://ewaybillgst.gov.in/) and navigate to reach the list as shown below-
