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 Suppliers/Clients 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 users can also use the JSON tool available on the EWB Portal to upload the master data in the bulk format.

The unregistered transporter can register itself, he/she is required to provide essential information on the e-Way bill portal. The transporter id is created by the e-Way bill system after furnishing the information and submitting it. It is a 15 digits number on similar lines with GSTIN and it is based on state code, PAN and Check digit. This can be shared by transporter to his clients to enter this number while generating e-Way bills.
The e-Way bill system has an option to enter the masters of the user, i.e, client master, supplier master, transporter master, and product master. If the user creates these masters, it will simplify the generation of an e-Way bill for them. Thus, the system auto-populates the details like trade/legal name, GSTIN, address on typing a few characters of client or supplier; HSN Code, tax rates, etc., in case of product.
