How Can Customers Generate E-Way Bills?

Under the GST provisions, an E-Way Bill (EWB) is required when goods valuing more than INR 50,000 are transported (intra-state/inter-state). This EWB is generally generated by the supplier of goods or the transporter. However, there can be conditions when the customer may have to generate the EWB.

In this article, we will explain:

Circumstances When The Customer Has To Generate The E-Way Bill

  • If the goods are transported in the customer’s vehicle (customer is the transporter as well), then he/she may be required to generate the EWB.
  • In some cases, the customer who is also the transporter can update the vehicle details in part B of the EWB.
  • However, if the customer (who is also the transporter) is not registered under GST, he/she can request the supplier to generate the EWB.
  • An unregistered customer can generate the EWB from the e-Way Bill portal as well.
