CAIT demanded Gujarat Govt’s attention on E-way Bill

The Confederation of All-India Traders (CAIT) from the Gujarat government has demanded to solve the problems associated with the e-way bills for textiles and other allied sectors.

The Gujarat chapter of CAIT claiming that like Tamil Nadu and West Bengal, the state should also increase the e-way bill limit from the current Rs. 50,000 worth of goods to Rs. 1 lakh. This would mean that only traders who are dispatching goods valued at Rs. 1 lakh or more would require to generate e-way bills.

CAIT is also requesting the Gujarat government to switch to district-level e-way bills for goods in transit for textiles and related sectors from city-limit e-way bills as recently Madhya Pradesh government has accepted the CAIT demand and had already implemented district-level e-way bills.

CAIT’s Gujarat chapter president, Pramod Bhagat in a letter to state GST commissioner PD Vaghela said, “The continuation with city-limit e-way bills is proving to be a transport bottleneck for various sectors, particularly the textile industry.”

The government of Tamil Nadu recently provided exemption from generation of e-way bill for jobwork and services relating to yarn, fabrics and garments. On the same lines, CAIT demanded that the Gujarat government should also implement the same for the Textile Sector.
