In any business, there are multiple stakeholders who manage the day-to-day activities, pertaining to sales, purchases, operations etc. E-way bill is no exception. In certain cases, tax payers may need to generate the e-way bill from multiple places of businesses, or they may need to generate a huge number of e-way bills in different time shifts, or they may even need to generate a huge number of e-way bills at the same time – all of which will need extra resources to execute. Also, the question of data security and privacy is always a top concern for any business organisation, and it may be a natural ask to have some system to manage the various users who have access to the business system. This is why, the e-way bill portal has given the provision to businesses, under which they can create multiple e-way bill sub-users, assign them different roles and manage all sub-users who have access to the portal with ease. In this blog, we will explore how to create sub-users on the e-way bill portal.
