VIA Taxation and Corporate Law Forum organised an interactive session with the GST officers on ‘e-Way Bill’ (new procedure under GST) at VIA. The speaker, S J Rayalu, Sr Superintendent, GST, CGST and Central Excise, Nagpur–I, said, “Transporters should get enrolled on the Goods and Services Tax (GST) e-Way Bill as they are not required to take registration. Transporters feel that once they get enrolled under e-Way Bill, they will be liable to file returns and comply with GST provisions. It will be in the interest of transporters to get enrolled under e-Way Bill, as the movement of their vehicles will not be disturbed at all”.

S J Rayalu said, “Part A is to be generated in the event of movement of goods within 50 kilometres if value exceeds Rs 50,000. The relaxation is only from filling of Part B.” He also updated the gathering about the recent changes in e-Way Bill rules. Prashant Warkar, Sr Superintendent, GST, CGST and Central Excise, Nagpur–I explained the rules of e-Way Bill in detail. He covered the practical issues raised during generation of e-Way Bill. He explained when an e-Way Bill is to be generated and the goods which are exempted from generation of e-Way Bill. In the session, Warkar covered more that 40 queries with regard to generation of e-Way Bill. He explained in detail the procedure of generation of e-Way Bill by an exporter, importer and SEZ unit.

Furthermore, he cautioned that a registered person should keep record of cancelled e-Way Bills along with reasons for the cancellation. Atul Pande, President of VIA welcomed S J Rayalu with a  floral bouquet. Similarly, Shelendra Manawat, Executive Committee (EC) member of VIA welcomed Prashant Warkar with floral bouquet. Pande in his welcome address said, “VIA Taxation Forum had organised series of programmes on GST, not only in Nagpur but in districts like Gondia, Akola, Amravati, Chandrapur and Bhandara. Efforts are being taken to give clarity to the industrial fraternity and in creating awareness for the due compliance of the GST provisions.”
Pande said, “With the applicability of e-Way Bill in Maharashtra, industry may face problems initially, but e-Way bill will be another milestone in the GST implementation. It will be user-friendly and day to day working will be easy.” He expressed gratitude to the department for taking pains to explain personally on the subject and also sharing time.
