It would also provide reports on recycling of e-way bills for tax evasion-prone commodities to help officers in identifying tax evaders.

Under the Goods and Services Tax (GST) regime, the e-way bill has been made compulsory for inter-state transport of goods worth more than Rs 50,000 from April 2018.

In the electronic way (e-way) bill system, businesses and transporters have to produce a GST inspector before the e-way bill, if asked.
