New Delhi: All India Transporters Welfare Association, one of the foremost apex bodies of India’s Road Transport Sector, has extended support to Bharat Bandh called by The Confederation of All India Traders against Goods and Services Tax and hold ‘road blockade, on the same day.
All transport godowns will display the protest banners. All customers will be approached by transport companies not to book or load any goods on February 26th, 2021,” said Mahendra Arya, National President AITWA. The nature of the movement is to reject booking and movement of all E-Way Bill oriented goods for one day. All transport companies are asked to park their vehicles between 6 am to 8 pm as a symbolic protest.
Penalties for a truck carrying a consignment with an expired E-way bill, or with an erroneous E-way bill amount to 200 percent of the tax value, or 100 percent of the invoice value under Section 129 of CGST Act, 2017. For small and medium transporters, especially those involved in part-load movement of goods or retail transportation, complying with the new rule has meant a higher and costly compliance burden, with penalties running into lakhs of rupees, for circumstantial delays.
