After few minutes, the person-in-charge of conveyance brings the EWB. Now, the officer can check the time of generation of EWB and updation of the Part-B of the EWB. If time of updation of one of them is greater than the time of recording by the officer as ‘No E-way Bill’, then it indicates that EWB is generated after stopping the conveyance.
