Generating E-way Bill through GSTZen


A waybill is a receipt or a document issued by a carrier giving details and instructions relating to the shipment of a consignment of goods and the details include the name of the consignor and consignee, the point of origin of the consignment, its destination, and route. Electronic Way Bill (E-Way Bill) is basically a compliance mechanism wherein by way of a digital interface the person causing the movement of goods uploads the relevant information prior to the commencement of movement of goods and generates an e-way bill on the GST portal.

E-way bills can be generated with or without generating an e-invoice. To generate an e-way bill through GSTZen, the user first needs to create API credentials and log in through GSTZen.
