The West Bengal government has increased the threshold limit for generation of e-way bill from the existing ₹50,000 to ₹1 lakh for movement of goods within the state. E-way bill would also be exempted where goods are being sent to job workers within the state. The intra-state e-way bill was rolled out across India in a phased manner from April 15 this year.

“The e-way bill in respect of movement of goods originating and terminating within the state (intra-state movement but without passing through any other state) would be required where the consignment value exceeds ₹1 lakh. Such limit was up to ₹50,000,” state finance minister Amit Mitra said.

“Generation of e-way bill for an intra state movement of goods is exempted where such goods are being sent to a job worker for job work or are being sent from one job worker to another or are being returned to the principal after such job work and where such transportation is not for final delivery of the finished goods,” Mitra said quoting an official notification.

Welcoming the decision, Confederation of Indian Textile Industry (CITI) chairman Sanjay K Jain said it is a very important and big step towards ‘ease of doing business’ for the MSME businesses.

The exemption of e-way bill for movement of goods in relation to all types of job work will bring immense relief to thousands of MSME units operating in the textile, garment and hosiery industry from a lot of paperwork and make things easier for the unorganised job working segment who were finding it very difficult to comply with e-way bill requirement for movement of goods within the state, Jain added.

The state government of Tamil Nadu had earlier announced exemption of e-way bill for movement of goods within the state for job work. (RKS)
