Now, let’s discuss the big question that who will generate the E-way bill.

  • Registered Taxpayer: If any person already completed their GST Registration is involved in the movement of goods worth more than Rs 50,000. Then the liability to generate the E-way bill is on them.
  • Transporter: If the E-way bill is not generated by the registered taxpayer, then the transporter carrying goods is required to generate e-Way Bill. In this case, the supplier has required all the necessary requirements on the common portal about the consignment.
  • Unregistered Persons – E-Way Bill can also be generated by Unregistered supplier. However, the actual liability to ensure timely generation of E-way bill lies with the registered purchaser.
