The post-GST era witnessed the implementation of Waybill compliance, wherein, supply of goods cannot happen without obtaining waybills from VAT authorities. However, E-way bill, an electronic bill for movement of goods that can be received on the GSTN (common portal) has been quite a challenge for the gems & jewellery industry.

Movement of goods equivalent to Rs 50,000 or more could not be moved without a registered person without an e-way bill. The concern surrounding this was represented by the GJF to the Government. On hearing the concern, the Government has decided to exempt the jewellery industry from the e-way bill.

After quite a few setbacks this year, this has been hopeful news for the industry. Chairman, GJF, Nitin Khandelwal thanked the Government for hearing the industry’s concern and acting on the same.
