GSTN Launches New E-Way Bill Portal Starting June 1, 2024

E-Way Bill

For the transportation of products within India, a digital document known as an E-way Bill, or Electronic Way Bill, is necessary. It serves as the permit that the items and Services Tax (GST) Act requires for the transportation of items costing more than ₹50,000. Depending on the situation, anyone involved in the supply chain—registered or unregistered—may be in charge of creating the E-way Bill.

To improve the current E-way Bill system for goods transportation, the Goods and Services Tax Network (GSTN) is introducing the E-Way Bill 2 Portal.

The new E-Way Bill 2 Portal (https://ewaybill2.gst.gov.in), launching on June 1, 2024, will operate alongside the main E-Way Bill portal (https://ewaybillgst.gov.in/) and provide several benefits.

Increased Availability

The E-Way Bill 2 Portal guarantees high availability, reducing downtime and disruptions.

Faster Synchronization

E-way bill details will synchronize between the two portals within seconds, ensuring a smooth data flow.

Independent Functionality

Users can directly generate and update E-way Bills on the E-Way Bill 2 Portal.

Web and API Access

The portal provides both web interface and API access for managing E-way Bills.

Shared Login Credentials

Taxpayers and logistics operators can use their existing login credentials from the main portal.

E-Way Bill
Contingency Plan

In case of technical issues with the main portal, the E-Way Bill 2 Portal serves as a backup.

Cross-Portal Functionality

Users can initiate and update Part-B of E-way Bills (transporter details) interchangeably on either portal.

Enhanced Reliability

If the main portal is unavailable, Part-B details for E-way Bills generated on Portal 1 can still be updated on Portal 2, ensuring continued operations.
