However, stay prepared with Tally.ERP 9 and manage your E-way bills easily. Know More

In our previous blogs we deep-dived into the official GST e-way bill portal, navigated to the main menu, and studied most of the options available under the “E-way Bill” tab, namely, generating new e-way bill, generating bulk e-way bill, and updating vehicle number. In this blog, we will visit the remaining two options available under the “E-way Bill” tab – E-way bill cancellation and E-way bill printing.

In order to access these 2 options,

  • Log on to ewaybill.nic.in
  • Enter your User Name and Password, then the Captcha Code, and then click “Login”, as shown in the picture below:

other option e-way bill-1

  • On successful authentication of your credentials, the main menu of the e-way bill portal will open up as shown below:

other option e-way bill-2

  • On the left hand side of the main menu of the e-way bill portal, click the option “E-way Bill”

How to cancel E-way bill

There might be situations where you may be required to do cancellation of EWB which has been generated. The reasons could be many – either the consignment of goods are not being transported, or the goods are not being moved as per the plan or the details mentioned in the e-way bill, or you would have made an incorrect entry in the e-way bill, which you may have realized later. Obviously, you may want to delete the e-way bill, but the provision for deletion of e-way bills which are already generated is not available in the e-way bill portal. Instead of deletion, you can always cancel e-way bills, but you will need to do it within 24 hours of having generated it. Please note, that if the concerned e-way bill has already been verified by any empowered officer, then it cannot be cancelled. You can easily carry out EWB cancellation, by navigating to the main menu, as detailed above, and going through the following steps:

  • Before going for the e-way bill cancellation, keep the e-way bill number ready with you
  • Under the “E-way Bill”, tab, click the sub-option “Cancel”

other option e-way bill-3

  • On doing so, the following screen will be displayed:

other option e-way bill-4

  • Enter the 12 digit e-way bill no., for the e-way bill you want to cancel
  • Select “Go”
  • Post that, the e-way bill in question, will be displayed, and you will then need to fill in a suitable reason for the cancellation. Once that is done, your e-way bill will be cancelled, and you will not be able to use it further, for the movement of goods; in fact doing so will be deemed illegal

E-way bill Printing

You can easily carry out EWB printing, by navigating to the main menu, as detailed above, and going through the following steps:

  • Under the “E-way Bill”, tab, click the sub-option “Print EWB”

other option e-way bill-5

  • On doing so, the following screen will be displayed:

other option e-way bill-6

  • Enter the 12 digit e-way bill no., for the e-way bill you want to print
  • Select “Go”
  • Post that, the e-way bill in question, will be displayed, with an option named “Print”, right at the bottom. Click that, and your e-way bill will be printed.

other option e-way bill-7
