e-Way Bill Portal
EWB Masters
Transporter Master
Last updated on April 23rd, 2021

The e-Way Bill (EWB) provides its users with the option to manage their products, clients, suppliers, and transporters. This can be done by creating product masters, registered supplier/client masters, unregistered supplier/client masters and transporter masters on the system. Therefore, creating masters for the transporters would mean that the user wouldn’t have to enter the entire name but just the first few characters. Thus, a drop-down list will be shown with the master data already entered by the user. Hence, this simplifies the data entry. The user can also upload master data in bulk format by using the JSON tool.

Steps to Create Transporters Master on EWB

  1. Visit the EWB portal

    Visit the e-Way Bill Portal and Log into your Account. Choose the “Transporters” option from the drop-down list of the “My Masters” option from the dashboard.e-Way Bill Portal - Dashboard

  1. Hey @ViraajAhuja47

    Yes. All the registered persons under GST must register on the portal of e-way bill using their GSTIN. Once GSTIN is entered, the system sends an OTP to the registered mobile number, registered with GST Portal and after authenticating the same, the system enables you to generate your username and password for the e-way bill system.

    After the generation of the username and password of your choice, you may proceed to make entries to generate an e-way bill.

    Hope this helps!

  2. Hey @HarshitShah

    The validity period of the e-Way Bill is calculated on the basis of ‘approx. distance’ entered while generating the e-Way Bill. For every 100 KM, one day is a validity period for the e-Way Bill as per rule and for part of 100 KM, one more day is added. For example, If approx. distance is 410KMs then the validity period is 4+1 days.
