What is Blocking and Unblocking of E-waybill generation?

Blocking of e-waybill generation means not allowing the taxpayer to generate e-waybills if he /she has not filed GST Return for latest two successive months or quarters. The blocked GSTIN cannot be used to generate the e-way bills either as Consignor or Consignee. Unblocking means allowing the generation of e-way bills for the GSTIN (if blocked) after the filing of the Return.

 How does blocking take place in the e-waybill system?

If the tax payers have not filed the latest two successive month returns on the GST Common Portal, then these tax payers will be blocked for the generation of the e-way bills as per the rule. The E-way Bill system will communicate with the GST Common Portal to find out the filing details of the taxpayers.

 How does unblocking take place in e-waybill system?

✓ If the blocked tax payer has filed the Return on the GST Common Portal, then next day morning his GSTIN is unblocked on the e-way Bill system and allow him to generate the e-way bills.

If the tax payer wants to generate the e-way bills immediately after filing the Return, then he can go

to the e-way bill portal and select the option ‘Search >> Update Block Status ‘ and then enter his/her GSTIN and see the status. If it is blocked then he/she can use update option to get the latest filing status from the GST Common Portal and get unblocked. Still if the system is not unblocking the GSTIN for e-way bill generation, then he can contact the Help Desk of the GST and raise the complaint to get his/her case resolved.
