Electronic Way Bill or E-Way Bill is a prerequisite for the movement of goods across India. The introduction of the E-Way Bill system in India was a crucial step towards ensuring the smooth and hassle-free movement of goods across the country. Under the GST regime, it is mandatory for businesses to generate an E-Way Bill whenever goods are moved from one place to another.
In the case of Transit Sale or delivery to a third party, the E-Way Bill rules are slightly different.
It is when the goods are sold by the original seller to a third party during the movement of goods from one place to another. This could happen due to a variety of reasons such as a change in the buyer's requirements, cancellation of the order, or any other reason.
When it comes to Transit Sale or delivery to a third party, the responsibility of generating the E-Way Bill lies with the person who is causing the movement of goods. In other words, if the original seller has already generated the E-Way Bill and during the transit, the goods are sold to a third party, then the responsibility of updating the E-Way Bill lies with the person who caused the movement of goods. This could be the original seller or the buyer who is causing the movement of goods.
Mr. A sells goods to Mr. B and generates the E-Way Bill. During the transit, Mr. B sells the goods to Mr. C. In this case, the responsibility of updating the E-Way Bill lies with Mr. B as he is the person who caused the movement of goods. Mr. B will have to generate a new E-Way Bill or update the existing one with the details of the new buyer i.e. Mr. C. If Mr. B fails to do so, he will be held liable for any penalties or fines.
It is important to note that the E-Way Bill rules for Transit Sale or delivery to a third party are applicable only when there is a change in the buyer's details. If the goods are delivered to the original buyer, then the E-Way Bill generated by the original seller will suffice.
Another important point to note is that the E-Way Bill generated or updated for a Transit Sale or delivery to a third party must be done within the validity period of the original E-Way Bill. The validity of the E-Way Bill is dependent on the distance covered by the goods. For every 100 km or part thereof, the validity of the E-Way Bill is one day.
In conclusion, the E-Way Bill rules for Transit Sale or delivery to a third party are slightly different from the regular E-Way Bill rules. The responsibility of generating or updating the E-Way Bill lies with the person who is causing the movement of goods. It is important to follow these rules to avoid penalties or fines.
