E Way Bills is an electronic way to bill for the movement of goods and services for goods to be generated by the e-way bill portal. In  GST the registered person cannot transport the goods from one place to another by using a vehicle whose value exceeds the amount Rs. 50000 ( Single Invoice/bill/delivery challan ) without an e-way bill that is generated on the waybill gst.gov.in.

Simultaneously, e-way bills can also be created or deleted by the SMS, Android App and by site-to-site integration through API.

When any kind of e-way bill is created a unique e-way bill number (EBN) is allocated and is available to their supplier, recipient, and the other transporters.
