E-way bill is a document which authenticates the transportation of goods. It is a tool to curb the ill practices by making the transportation records online, which makes it easy and convenient for the Govt to identify the authenticity of the goods which are being transported.

Section 68 of the Goods and Service Act mandates that the Government may require the person in charge of a conveyance carrying any consignment of goods of value exceeding such amount as may be specified, to carry with him such documents and such devices as may be prescribed. Rule 138 of CGST Rules, 2017 prescribes e-way bill as the document to be carried for the consignment of goods in certain prescribed cases. Hence e-way bill generated from the common e-way bill portal is required.
