There may be some transporters, who are not registered under the Goods and Services Tax Act and if such transporters cause the movement of goods for their clients, they are required to generate the e-way bill on behalf of their clients or update the vehicle number for e-way bill. Hence, they need to register on e way bill portal and generate the 15 digits Unique Transporter Id.

The transporter should generate an e-Way bill if,

a. When the value of the goods of a single supplier exceeds 50,000 INR


b. When the value of all the goods in the vehicle exceeds 50,000 INR


When a transporter is unregistered and if the goods in the vehicle exceed 50,000 INR, then the transporter should generate an e-Way bill. In order to avoid confusions, the concept of Transporter ID is introduced. Every unregistered transporter will be provided with a Transporter ID, which they should mention instead of the GSTIN.

By registering on the e-Way Bill portal, the outcome will be

  1. The Transporter gets a unique Transporter ID
  2. A Unique username to work on the e-Way portal
