E-Way Bill in Delhi-NCR (Delhi, Haryana, UP)

What is E-Way Bill?

E-Way Bill is an electronically generated bill which is required to be generated by a registered person who intends to initiate the movement of goods in India from one place to another (both inter-state and intra-state), the value of which per invoice is more than Rs. 50,000 with the exception of Delhi where the value shall be more than Rs. 1 lac.

The bill is required to be carried by the carrier of a consignment.

Upon generation of the e-way bill on the common portal (, a unique e-way bill number (EBN) shall be made available to the supplier, the recipient and the transporter on the common portal.

Applicability of E-Way Bill

Who, When and How 


Registered Person who causes the movement of goods of consignment of more than Rs 50,000 in value.
- in relation to supply (eg. sales)
- for reasons other than supple (eg. sales return, branch transfers, etc.)
- due to inward supply from unregistered person

Unregistered Persons are also required to generate e-Way Bill. However, where a supply is made by an unregistered person to a registered person, the receiver will have to ensure all the compliances are met as if they were the supplier.

Transporters carrying goods by road, air, rail, etc. need to generate eway bill if neither the consignor nor the consignee generates the eway bill and the value of goods is more than Rs. 50,000.

They can enroll themselves on the e-way bill portal ( and generate the 15 digits Unique Transporter Id.

The transporters however are not obligated to generate the eway bill where all the consignments in the conveyance are
- individually (single invoice/bill/delivery challan) ≤ Rs. 50,000 but
- in aggregate (of all invoices/bills/delivery challans) > Rs 50,000

If the transporter is transporting multiple consignments in a single conveyance, Form GST EWB-02 can be used to produce a consolidated e-way bill, by providing the e-way bill numbers of each consignment.


- Value of goods is more than Rs. 50,000
- Inter-state movement of goods for Job Work irrespective of the value of consignment
- Inter-state movement of handicraft goods irrespective of the value of consignment

In case of transport by road - generated before the movement of goods
In case of transport by railway, air or vessel - generated before or after the movement of goods


The railways shall not deliver the goods until e-way bill is produced.

The consignment value of goods for the purpose of e-way bill generation shall be the value declared in an invoice/bill of supply/delivery challan, as the case may be, including tax and cess as mentioned in the document and excluding the value of exempt supply of goods where the invoice is issued in respect of both exempt and taxable supply of goods.

Consignment Value = Invoice Value + Taxes - Value of Exempt Goods


Furnishing information related to transaction in Part A of Form GST EWB-01
Furnishing information related to transport in Part B of Form GST EWB-01


The validity is dependent on the distance travelled by the goods since the generation of e-way bill.


Validity of one day will expire at midnight of the day immediately following the date of generation of e-way bill. 

The validity of an e-way bill can be extended by the generator either 4 hours before expiry or within 4 hours after its expiry.

Where, under exceptional circumstances, the goods cannot be transported within the validity period, the transporter may generate another e-way bill after updating the details in Part B of Form GST EWB-01.

In case of import or export of goods, the approximate distance for movement of consignment from the source to destination has to be considered based on the distance within the country i.e. in case of export, the consignor place to the place from where the consignment is leaving the country, after customs clearance and in case of import, the place where the consignment is reached the country to the destination place and cleared by Customs.
