Nearly 5,000 people across Bihar are being trained to generate e-way bills, the nation-wide trial run for which is scheduled to begin on January 15, Deputy Chief Minister Sushil Kumar Modi said here today.
Addressing a conference of commercial tax officials, Sushil Modi said those being trained for the purpose include 888 transporters and that for transportation of goods worth more than Rs 50,000 e-way bill wills become compulsory from February 1 next under the new GST regime.
He also said that traders and transporters with a GST registration can generate e-way bills through computers as well as mobile phone apps.
He also underscored that even before GST came into force, Bihar was issuing e-road permits known as "Suvidha" "wherein only eight fields are required to be filled as against 26 in conventional application forms".
