How is the e-waybill created?
Creating an e-waybill typically involves several steps.
First, the user registers on the e-waybill portal and logs in with their credentials. Then, they enter the shipment details, including invoice numbers, dates, sender and receiver information, GSTIN numbers (Goods and Services Tax Identification Number), quantity and description of goods, and the mode of transportation.
After submitting the information, the system validates the details and generates a unique e-waybill number. The user can download and print the e-waybill document, which serves as proof of shipment.
The e-waybill has a specific validity period and must be presented during transit along with relevant transportation documents. If any changes or cancellations are needed, the user can update or cancel the e-waybill accordingly.
It's important to follow the specific procedures and guidelines provided by the respective government authority's e-waybill portal for accurate and up-to-date information.
