Goods and Service Tax Network has released a statement of Blocking of E-Way Bill (EWB) generation facility for taxpayers with Aggregate Annual Turnover over Rs 5 Cr., after 15th October, 2020. The statement is as follows-

1. In terms of Rule 138 E (b) of the CGST Rules, 2017, the E Way Bill generation facility of a person is liable to be restricted, in case the person fails to file their GSTR-3B returns, for a consecutive period of two months or more.

2. As you might be aware that the GST Council in its last meeting has decided that this provision will be made applicable for the taxpayers whose Aggregate Annual Turn Over (AATO, PAN based) is more than Rs 5 Crores.
