The Central Government, on September 25, 2018 has informed to make new enhancements in the E- Way Bill (EWB) generation form which will be released on October 1, 2018.

A Note on next release has been published which explains the new enhancements done in the E- Way Bill (EWB) generation form. The purpose of the document is to communicate the tax payers and transporters the latest changes with screen shots and make them to understand and prepare them while generating the E-Way Bills.

The following enhancements in the E-Way Bill generation form are as under:

·         Display of only relevant document types in “Document Type” drop down list based on the selected Transaction “Supply Type” and “Sub Type” by the tax payers:-

In the new version, once the user selects the Transaction type and Sub Type in ‘Transaction Details’ section, system will display only the relevant document types in ‘Document Type’ dropdown pertaining  to the selected sub type as shown in below tables. Display of only relevant dropdown options corresponding to the selected Transaction Sub-Type will make sure that tax payers will select only the correct document type applicable for the respective Transaction Sub-Type while generating the EWBs.

·         Auto-population of state name based on the pin code entered at consignor and consignee addresses:-

(i)                  In the new version, once the tax payer enters the pin code in “Bill From” & “Bill To” sections, state name will be auto-populated based on the entered pin code.

(ii)                 In exceptional cases where one pin code belongs to more than one state, system will show the names of the concerning states in the drop down.

(iii)               In case tax payer feels that particular pin code is genuine but not being accepted, he/she can raise the issue with helpdesk for resolution and clarification.

·         Standard rates for tax are provided in the drop down list for selection based on the type (intrastate/inter-state) transactions

·         Additional fields for “CESS Non Advol Amount” & “Other Value” have been introduced to enter CESS Non Advol amount and any other charges (+/-) written in invoice.

·         Alerting the generator of the E-Way Bill through SMS message, in case the total invoice value is more than Rs. 10 Crores: SMS and pop-up will alert the generator regarding the higher EWB value so that in case the actual value is less than Rs. 10 Crore but user enters the higher value due to typo mistake etc., the same can be acted upon accordingly.

·         Transporter ID is made compulsory for generating Part-A slip: As per the new e-way Bill rule, the e-way bill can be generated by the tax payer after entering the Part-B. If he is not having the part-B and transporter is going to update the Part-B, then he/she has to compulsorily enter the transporter id to generate the ‘Part-A Slip’.
