GST E-Way bill amendment dated 07.03.2018(Notification No.12/2018):-

The government has made some changes to the e-way bill rules to further simplify the procedure for movement of goods under the Goods and Services.

Under the new rules, in the case of intra-state movement of goods, there will be no need for eway bill if the consignment’s total value is over Rs 50,000 but the individual consignment is valued at less than Rs 50,000, giving relief to e-commerce and courier companies that move packages for delivery. 
If both exempted and taxable goods are moved in a same invoice, only the value of the taxable supply will be considered for the purpose of generating an e-way bill. This will provide relief to the industry, especially FMCG companies that move all kinds of goods together. 

The e-way bill has been made mandatory at the time of delivery by the railways and job workers can also generate the bill in the case of inter-state movement of goods. Goods moved within a state did not need e-way bill for distances of up to 10 km, this has now been increased to 50 km, which will help smaller businesses. 

Earlier, after the expiry of the validity period, the transporter had to generate a new e-way bill. The e-way bill will be deemed to be accepted upon delivery of goods or the expiry of 72 hours of its generation, whichever is earlier. An additional field place of dispatch has been added in the e-way bill to address vehicle breakdown or such other contingencies. 

As per circulation no: F 3(134)/Policy-GST/2018/1444-54, In exercise of the powers conferred by clause (d) of sub-rule (14) of rule 138 of the Delhi Goods and Service Tax Rules 2017 that E-Way bill is not required to be generated in case of intra-state movement of any goods within the area covered under the National Capital Territory of Delhi.

This Notification shall come into force from 1st February, 2018.

Part A: In the part A, we fill the details of Recipient, Item details and Value of goods.

Part B: In the part B, we fill the transporter details such as transport name,Vehicle number, GR number.
If the material is dispatch less than 10 Kms through by hand or rickshaw, in that case no E-way bill required.


An E-way bill validity is based on the distance travelled by the goods. Validity is calculated from the date and time of generation of e-way bill. E-way bill validity as per below:

Less than 100 kms:  1 day validity

For every additional 100 kms : Additional 1 day validity.


Penalty for E-way bill is 200% of value of invoice.

How pocket-friendly will GST be for you
GST council has agreed on rate structure as 0%, 5%, 12%, 18% and 28%. Having a slab rate structure in GST is departure from popular international practice of having one rate of tax for all goods and services.

A 4-tier GST tax structure of 5, 12, 18 and 28 per cent, with lower rates for essential items and the highest for luxury and de-merits goods that would also attract an additional cess, has been agreed upon by the GST Council.

Essential items including food, which presently constitute 50 per cent of the consumer inflation basket, will be taxed at zero rate, in order to keep a check on inflation.

The schedule for goods and services under each slab rate has not been announced yet. According to Finance Minister Arun Jaitley, highest tax slab rate will be applicable to items currently taxed at 30% to 31% (excise duty plus VAT) will be taxed at a demerit rate of 28%.
