e-Waybill is an electronic waybill required to be generated on e-Waybill Portal for the movement of goods. India Compliance offers multiple ways to manage your e-Waybill compliance.

You can generate the e-Waybill using the bulk generation facility or the APIs.


e-Waybill Generation Using API

  • On submitting the sales invoice, e-Waybill shall be automatically generated (if enabled in settings).
  • You can manually trigger the generation of an e-Waybill for Delivery Note or where all fields were not present (on submit).

Go to the e-Waybill menu --> Generate dialog --> Update fields and click Generate.

Generating e-Waybill on Submit

How would I know if only Part A of the e-Waybill will be generated?

Dialog for Generate e-Waybill fields has separate sections for Part A and Part B. Also, the Primary Action button will denote if only Part A can be generated.

How to auto calculate the distance for e-Waybill?

If the distance is set to zero (0), e-Waybill Portal will suggest the distance between postal codes. We shall update it to your document where e-Waybill is generated using the APIs.

In some exceptional circumstances, where the distance between postal codes is unavailable with the e-Waybill database, you shall receive a prompt. Generate the e-Waybill again after entering the distance as per your estimate.

Update Transporter Details


Updating or cancelling e-Waybill is possible only within the validity period. These options will be visible only if you have generated the e-Waybill using API and the validity to do so has not expired.

Use this feature to update the GSTIN of the transporter to your e-Waybill.

From e-Waybill menu --> Select Update Transporter --> Update appropriate information and click update.

If you check this, we shall update the attachments of the e-Waybill or Data concerning the e-Waybill as per your preference from GST settings for e-Waybill.
