New Features in E-Waybill System :

De-registration for Transporters:

The transporters registered in e-Waybill Portal using Enrolment (based on PAN) and no longer want to continue in e-waybill system can now deenrol themselves in the e-Waybill System. Once de-enrolled, they will not be able to access the e-Waybill portal.

Cancellation of Common Enrolment:

Many taxpayers have done common enrolment but do not want to continue with common enrol Id. Such taxpayers can cancel the same. So, a facility to de-register from common enrolment is provisioned. Taxpayers can make use of this facility to de-register.

It was the feature that once, the common enrolment Id is cancelled, consequently, it cannot be used to update the transporter details. However, the Part-B details can be updated for the EWBs that are already assigned with common enrolment Id before the cancellation.

A time limit of 1 month will be provided after the cancellation of common enrolment. Subsequently, the login will be blocked and no further activity can be performed in the eWaybill system.

Two  Factor authentication:

In order to secure the e-waybill login access, 2 Factor Authentication(2FA) is enabled and kept optional. However, after couple of weeks, 2FA will be made mandatory. The users operating e-waybill system from multiple locations and with single credential are advised to create sub-users immediately.
