What should be the Transporter id in the E-way bill if Transporter doesn’t have a transporter id?
Transporter ID is must in the E-way bill. There may be some transporters, who are not registered under the Goods and Services Tax Act and if such transporters cause the movement of goods for their clients, they are required to generate the e-way bill on behalf of their clients. Hence, they need to enroll on the e-way bill portal and generate the 15 digits Unique Transporter Id. This 15-digit number can be used in place of a GSTIN on the E-way bill. It’s a great way to get the benefits of working with unregistered transporters and still be GST-compliant.
The transporter must apply for the ID online on E-way bill portal. For making the application the transporter needs to enter basic information about his business, including their name, address, and PAN. In addition, must upload proof of their ID and address. Once the system approves the application, it sends the ID number via email.
Hope this helps!
