After notification from GST council about blocking e-way bill creation, for those companies who have not filled GSTR 3B since last two months, it has come to notice that some transporters also are not able to create e-way bills part A from their e-way bill portal.
Despite a mention on notification that transporters who are not active on GST portal and have enrolment ID/Transporter ID on Eway bill portal will not be affected. Still transporters who have either surrendered their GSTIN are not able to create e-way bills part A.
Transporters create e-way bills for consignors due to following reasons
Since last night 2nd Dec, 2019 we came to know that transporters are not able to create part A on behalf of their customers. As they try to create e-way bills the e-way bill portal throws an error mentioning
“Error – The GSTIN <Transporter ID> has not filled GSTR 3B return on gst portal for last two consecutive month. This GSTN is blocked for e-way bill generation either as consignor or consignee.”
On contrary if both consignee and consignor have filled their part of return still transporters who have not filled GSTR 3B return are bit able to create e-way bills for any consignor.
Many transporters have written in grievance support At e-way bill portal.
We will update about this topic as we get further details, till than please ask your clients to create part A of Eway bills
