E-way bill generation is inching closer to pre-lockdown levels with 4.27 crore e-way bills, valued at over Rs 12.40 lakh crore, generated in June. An average of 14.26 lakh e-way bills, required for transportation of goods valued at over Rs 50,000, were generated each day in June, which is 77 percent of the average number of bills generated per day in the pre-lockdown phase, GST Network said on Sunday.

Over Rs 12.40 lakh crore were generated by businesses and transporters during June, higher than bills worth Rs 11.43 lakh crore generated in March, reflecting an uptick in economic activity with the gradual lifting of lockdown, GST Network (GSTN) said in a statement.

In April and May, 84.53 lakh (Rs 3.90 lakh crore) and 2.51 lakh (Rs 8.98 lakh crore) such bills were generated. In comparison, in February and January, 5.63 crore (Rs 15.39 lakh crore) and 5.61 crore (Rs 15.71 lakh crore) e-way bills were generated, respectively, on the government portal.

As per e-way bill generation data, an average of 18.49 lakh e-way bills were generated per day by businesses and transporters between January 25-March 24, 2020. This number came down drastically to 1.72 lakh during Lockdown Phase-1 (March 25-April 14).
