FAQ on E Way Bill

When multiple invoices are being transported together in a single vehicle or conveyance, a consolidated e-way bill can be generated for all the invoices. This consolidated e-way bill will contain details of all the invoices being transported, such as the invoice numbers, amounts, and GST information.

The e-way bill is generated electronically on the e-way bill portal or through SMS, and it contains information about the consignor, consignee, goods being transported, and the transportation vehicle. It is mandatory for the person in charge of the conveyance to carry the e-way bill along with the goods during transportation.
