1. Multiple Vehicle Option for E-Way Bill

The option to process E-way bill for multiple vehicles has been introduced at E-way bill portal wherein the consignment of one e-way bill has to be moved in multiple vehicles, after moving to transhipment place.

Let's take up an example for our understanding: An e-way bill is generated and needs to be moved from A to C. Point A to B, the consignment moves via Rail or bigger vehicle.

Conditions: It is not possible to move the consignment from B to C in the same mode of transportation due to unavailability of that mode where big vehicles cannot be used. In such cases, the consignment needs to be moved in multiple smaller vehicles.
