The Notification no. 27/2017-CT dated 30.08.2017 resulted into substitution of Rule 138 with new Rule 138 with further addition of new set of rules i.e. 138A to 138D. But, the date of the implementation of these rules has not been notified till date.
The salient aspects of e-way bill provisions are as follows –

• If the transport is less than 10 Kms from place of supplier to place of transporter, details of conveyance may not be furnished. In many cases, this limit is not sufficient.
