What is GST Login Portal?


One of the features that makes the GST regime a true winner is that now tax management comes with technological support. You can forget about standing in line at your local income tax office to file GST, view credit ledgers or claim refunds in lieu of excess tax payment. Instead, you can avail tax services online. The first step to being able to do so is to login to the Government of India’s official GST portal hosted at www.gst.gov.in. Here’s a rundown on the Goods and Service Tax login procedure for existing and first-time users.

What is GST E Way Bill System?

“Also known as Electronic Way Bill, the eWay Bill is a bill that transporters should carry when moving goods from one state to another or for intra-state movement. The eWay bill is used to track movement of goods under the Goods and Services Tax (GST).

The eWay bill is electronically generated on the eWay portal. The eWay bill must be generated for every consignment of goods in value of Rs. 50,000 and more.

When an eway bill is generated, a unique Eway Bill Number is allocated to the transporter, recipient and supplier.

The following details or documents are required to generate an eWay bill:

  1. Invoice/Bill of Supply/Challan of the consignment of goods

  2. Transporter ID or Vehicle number, if consignment is being transported by road

  3. Transporter ID, transport document number, and date on the document, if consignment is transported by rail, air, or ship

Before GST implementation, way bills were generated through state-specific portals and were subject to state rules but under GST, the eWay bill is governed by a uniform set of rules applicable through-out India.”
