Blocking of E-Way Bill (EWB) generation facility for taxpayers with AATO over Rs 5 Cr., after 15th October 2020

In terms of Rule 138 E (b) of the CGST Rules, 2017, the E Way Bill generation facility of a person is liable to be restricted, in case the person fails to file their GSTR-3B returns, for a consecutive period of two months or more.

As you might be aware that the GST Council in its last meeting has decided that this provision will be made applicable for the taxpayers whose Aggregate Annual Turn Over (AATO, PAN-based) is more than Rs 5 Crores.  

Thus, if the GSTIN associated with the respective PAN (with AATO over Rs 5 Cr.) has failed to file their GSTR-3B Return for 02 or more tax periods, up to the month of tax period of  August, 2020, their EWB generation facility will be blocked on the EWB Portal. Please note that the EWB generation facility for such GSTINs (whether as consignor or consignee or by transporter) will be blocked on EWB Portal after 15th October, 2020.

To avail of a continuous EWB generation facility on EWB Portal, you are therefore advised to file your pending GSTR 3B returns immediately.

Please ignore this update if: –Blocking of E-Way Bill

  • You are not registered on the EWB portal or
  • You have already filed your GSTR-3B Return for August 2020 or
  • Your AATO (PAN-based) is below Rs 5 Cr.

Introduction of Goods and Services Tax (GST) across India with effect from 1st of July 2017 is a very significant step in the field of indirect tax reforms in India. For quick and easy movement of goods across
India without any hindrance, all the check posts across the country are abolished. The GST system provides a provision of e-Way Bill, a document to be carried by the person in charge of conveyance, generated electronically from the common portal. To implement the e-Way Bill system, ICT based solution is required. Hence, as approved by the Goods and Services Tax (GST) Council, a web-based solution has been designed and developed by National Informatics Centre and it is being rolled out for the use of taxpayers and transporters
