In our previous blogs, we extensively went through the conventional mode of generating the e-way bill i.e. the web based mode, wherein we navigated the e-way bill portal on a computer. However, apart from the conventional mode, one can also register for e-way bill via SMS, Android, GSP, API & Transporter modes.

The GSP Mode is more for the GST Suvidha provider, and the API mode is more for the application developer, who would want to integrate his business management software with the e-way bill portal. As such, these two modes will be used by specific audiences for specific purposes. However the remaining 3 – SMS, Android & Transporter – are primarily for the benefit of businesses and transporters who will operate the e-way bill portal for business purposes. In this blog, we will understand how you can register for SMS, Android & Transporter modes of e-way bill on the portal.

In order to activate these 3 modes, you will need to:

    • 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:
