Proposal to allow e-way bill only if Vehicle is Fit
A task force set up by the GST Council last year  suggested removal of state and national permits, all forms of checks, including road tax, pollution and fitness certificates. The task force was set up to suggest measures for creating an ecosystem for seamless road transport connectivity.
“With the abolition of value added tax and entry tax, there is no need for a permit system to restrict the movement of vehicles in a state… Hence, state permits, national permits can be abolished,” the committee said in its report, which was taken up by the 28th GST Council on Saturday 21.07.2018.
An e-way bill may be generated only after the vehicle is found fit as per transport database, called VAHAN, as per the plan
The ministry of road transport and highways will mandatefitment of Vehicle Tracking System devices using GPS technology on all goods transport vehicles, the report said.
It has suggested that all enforcement agencies record every instance of inspection or checkingand the e-way bill system could be used to create identities for all department to enable them to create verification reports.
