Registering and Enrolling for the e-Way Bill System

The first step in generating an e-Way bill is to register on the e-Way Bill Portal. All GST registered persons (supplier, recipient, or transporter), are advised to create an account on the portal.

Note: Transporters who are not registered under GST can still enrol and create an account on the portal to generate e-Way bills. This also applies to any citizen who wishes to move goods worth more than Rs. 50,000 for their own use.

Registration Process for Taxpayers

Enrolling for Transporters

Transporters who are not registered under the GST regime will not be able to register for the e-Way Bill System using the forms discussed above. Instead, they can enrol using the Enrolment for Transporters link.

Creating and Managing Masters

Masters are detailed descriptions of all the products, clients, suppliers, and transporters frequently dealt with by a user. This helps simplify the process of filling out multiple forms for generating an e-Way bill.

There are four types of masters which can be created by the system: products, clients/customers, suppliers, and transporters.

Products

After selecting Products enter basic product details including the HSN and applicable tax rates for the products. Multiple products can be added. The form below is to create a product master.

Creating and Managing Sub-users

Large businesses often operate out of multiple locations. It would not be very efficient to create e-Way bills from only one branch or headquarters, so the system allows for sub-users.

Sub-users are other authorities who are granted access to use the system, by the original user.

Creating a Sub-user

Freezing a Sub-user

Original users can freeze or remove sub-users. Select the Freeze Sub-user option to do this.

Update Sub-user

A user can update a sub-user using the same method they used to create the sub-user.

Other Modes of Generation

For the convenience of users, the system provides a few other ways to generate an e-Way bill. Here’s how you can register for them.

Registering for SMS System

Click the For SMS option under Registration and enter your registered mobile number. You will be redirected to the page below.

REGISTERING FOR SMS SYSTEM

Registering for Android System

Select the For Android option under Registration  to be directed to the following page.

REGISTERING FOR ANDROID SYSTEM

Enter the OTP to select a user. The system then auto-populates the name and place fields. Then enter the IMEI number.

Generating e-Way Bills as a Taxpayer or a Transporter

My GSTIN From CP

Users can add their business details from the Common Portal (CP) in the e-Way Bill Portal. This allows information to be auto-populated while generating e-Way bills, making the process easier. Details can be added by filling out the e-Way Bill User Updationg form, shown below.
