Surat traders want extension of deadline for e-way bills
20
Jan '18
Textile traders in Surat have sought extension of the online e-way bill generation deadline to March 31 from February 1 due to technical glitches in the goods and service tax (GST) portal. Though the process was trial-launched on January 16 for inter-state movement of goods above Rs 50,000, the traders want that to start after the system works properly.

It was reaffirmed in the recent GST Council meeting that the e-way bill system would be rolled out from February 1 and 15 states are on board for obtaining intra-state bill, according to finance minister Arun Jaitley.

Though the finance ministry stated that traders and transporters can start using the system on a voluntary basis from January 16, a majority of traders are either unable to upload their details or the system crashes while the details are being filed.

The transporters are insisting on the e-way bill details, without which the goods are not loaded for transportation, a report in a top Indian daily quoted leader of the Federation of Surat Textile Traders' Association (FOSTTA) Devkishan Menghani as saying.

A large number of textile traders recently gathered at Abhishek Market in the city to convey their problems related to GST to Navsari member of parliament C R Paatil. (DS)
