The website has reportedly been facing technical drawbacks, on account of which the government postponed the generation of the e-way bill for both inter and intrastate movement of goods.
"Due to difficulties faced by trade in generating e-way bill due to initial technological glitches, it has been decided to extend the trial phase for generation of an e-way bill, both for inter and intra-state movement of goods. It will be made compulsory from a new date in due course," the finance ministry tweeted.
In the 25th meeting of the Goods and Services Tax (GST) Council, it was decided that the implementation of the e-way bill would start from February 1, with 15 states agreeing to implement it on a trial basis.
On a related note, states governments need to implement the e-way bill before June 1.
The facility for generation, modification, and cancellation of e-way bills is being provided on trial basis on the portal ewaybill.nic.in.
Once fully operational, the e-way bill system will start functioning on the portal ewaybillgst.gov.in. (ANI)
