    Pls clear Sir how to update every time ?

    • Hi Brijesh, You need to update vehicle number in part B of eway bill every time when you will change vehicle.

  2. Hi sir. good morning. we are exporters, we will send cargo to IGI AIRPORT and ICD TKD . in this cases e way bill is mandatory to generate on overseas buyer name ?

    • Hi Ravi, Yes you are required to generate eway bill up to the distance of IGI Airport or ICD TKD.

      Don’t confuse over inland airport activity. In a clarification issued by the Ministry of Finance, the e-way bill shouldn’t be generated if transportation happens from the customs port, airport, air cargo complex and land customs station to an inland container depot or a container freight station for clearance by Customs.
      Thanks ask if you have any further inquiry.
