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.
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.
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.
