A transporter who is not registered under the GST Portal can also register themselves on the e-Way Bill portal (EWB). They need to share their business details in order to register on the EWB portal. On successful registration on the EWB portal, the user receives the Transporter ID which is a 15-digit number. Along with the transporter ID, the user also receives their user credentials.
Steps to Register as a Transporter
- Visit the e-Way bill Portal
Visit the e-Way Bill portal. Navigate to the “Registration” option on the dashboard and click on the “Enrolment for Transporters” option from the drop-down list.
- Application page
We move to the application page. Select your State from the drop-down list and enter your legal name as per the PAN in the respective fields. Enter your PAN number and click on the “Validate” option.
- Type of enrolment
After your PAN has been validated, we move to the next section i.e “Type of Enrolment.” Choose one from the four options given below:
3. Cold Storage
4. Transport Services
- Constitution of business
Select the “Constitution of Business” from the respective drop-down list.
- Particulars of principal place of business
Additionally, enter the address details under the section “Particulars of Principal Place of Business.”
- Login details
Under the section “Login Details,” enter your username and check for its availability. Additionally, enter your preferred password and confirm it. Finally, click on the check-box, and enter the captcha code as shown in the image below and click on the “Save” option.
After the completion of this process, the system will generate the 15-digit TRANS ID which will be displayed on the screen. This TRANS ID can be provided to the clients to enter in the EWB to enable the transporter to enter the vehicle number for movements of goods.
There are transporters who are not registered under the Goods and Services Tax Act, but such transporters cause the movement of goods for their clients. They need to enroll on the e-Way Bill portal to get a 15 digit Unique Transporter ID.
This indicates that the PAN name and Number, entered by you, are not getting validated by the CBDT/ Income Tax system. Please enter the exact name and number as in the income tax database.
This is indicating that you are a registered taxpayer with valid GSTIN since validation is done on the PAN you have entered. You need not enroll again as a transporter but use your GSTIN to register on the e-Way Bill portal.
This indicates that you have already enrolled on the e-Way Bill portal by providing your PAN, business and other details and created your username and password. Please use them to log into the e-way bill system. If you have forgotten the username or password, then please use the “Forgot Trans id” or “Forgot Password” facility provided on the portal to recollect your username or create a new password accordingly.
