To make movement of goods across States easy and fast, the Government has decided to make the Inter-State e-way bill  mandatory from 1st June, 2018.

This was decided in the 24th meeting of the GST Council held  in Delhi through video conferencing under the Chairmanship of the Union Minister of Finance and Corporate Affairs Arun Jaitley.
Till now, the States are authorised  to continue their own separate e-way Bill systems.

Traders and transporters have conveyed to the Council that they are facing hardship in the Inter-State movement of goods.

Therefore, bringing in an early all India system of e-way Bill has become a necessity.

The e-way Bill syatem will be rolled out on a trial basis latest by 16th January, 2018.

Trade and transporters can start using this system on a voluntary basis from 16th January, 2018.

The Rules for implementation of nationwide e-way Bill system for Inter-State movement of goods on a compulsory basis will be notified with effect from 1st February, 2018.

This will bring uniformity across the States for seamless inter-State movement of goods.

There are certain States which are already having system of e-way Bill for intra-State as well as inter-State movement and some of those States can be early adopters of national e-way Bill system for intra-State movement also.
