The misunderstanding of textile goods transporters on transporting textile goods valued below Rs 50,000 only through e-way bill was cleared at the meeting convened by the Federation of Surat TextileTraders’ Association (FOSTTA) with senior authorities of the Goods and Services Tax (GST) here on Thursday.
The GST Council has made it mandatory for a registered person to generate an e-way bill only if the value of consignment exceeds Rs 50,000. The provision of the sub-rule (7) of rule 138 has been deferred temporarily.
FOSTTA secretary Champalal Bothra said, “We had invited senior GST officers for the meeting and to dispel the misunderstanding prevailing among transporters for transporting consignment below Rs 50,000 value. Now, things have become clear and the transporters have agreed to transport goods as per the decision of the GST Council.”
