NIC Has Issued FAQ on Blocking and Unblocking of Eway Bill Generation

The FAQ has been issued by National Informatics Center (“NIC”) to implement the new feature of blocking/unblocking the taxpayers from next month, as per the rule. Few important questions have been picked from the FAQ to make the taxpayers understand:

1. What are Blocking and Unblocking of E-waybill generation?

Ans: Blocking of e-waybill generation means not allowing the taxpayer to generate e-waybills if he /she has not filed GST Return for the latest two successive months or quarters. The blocked GSTIN cannot be used to generate the e-way bills either as Consignor or Consignee. Unblocking means allowing the generation of e-way bills for the GSTIN (if blocked) after the filing of the Return.

2. How does blocking take place in the e-waybill system?

Ans: If the taxpayers have not filed the latest two successive month returns on the GST Common Portal, then these taxpayers will be blocked for the generation of the e-way bills as per the rule. The E-way Bill system will communicate with the GST Common Portal to find out the filing details of the taxpayers.

3. How does unblocking take place in e-waybill system?

If the tax payer wants to generate the e-way bills immediately after filing the Return, then he can go to the e-way bill portal and select the option ‘Search  Update Block Status ‘ and then enter his/her GSTIN and see the status. If it is blocked then he/she can use update option to get the latest filing status from the GST Common Portal and get unblocked.

Still if the system is not unblocking the GSTIN for e-way bill generation, then he can contact the Help Desk of the GST and raise the complaint to get his/her case resolved.

4. In spite of filing latest Returns, I have been blocked from e-waybill generation. What should I do?

 

Ans: If the tax payer wants to generate the e-way bills immediately after filing the returns, then he can go to the eway bill portal and select the option ‘Search  Update Block Status ‘ and then enter his/her GSTIN and see the status. If it is blocked then he/she can use update option to get the latest filing status from the GST Common Portal and get unblocked.

Still the system is not unblocking the GSTIN for e-way bill generation, then he can contact the Help Desk of the GST and raise the complaint to get his/her case resolved.
