Minister of State for Finance Shiv Pratap Shukla on Thursday gave clarification on e-way bill regarding movement of goods from dry-ports to sea ports and from SEZs within the zone.
The minister said that the government has received various representations from Association of Exporters as well as Corporate Bodies seeking clarity on issues relating to exemption for export consignments during custom bonded movement from one airport to another; movement from SEZ/FTWZ (Free Trade Warehousing Zone) to port and vice versa; and parity in movement of export cargo with import cargo.
The minister said that no e-way bill is required to be generated where the goods are being transported from the customs port, airport, air cargo complex and land customs station to an inland container depot or a container freight station for clearance by Customs.
He added that there is no requirement for e-way bills under customs bond from an inland container depot or a container freight station to a customs port, airport, air cargo complex and land customs station, or from one customs station or customs port to another customs station or customs port; and customs supervision or under customs seal.
This information was given by the minister in written reply to a question in Rajya Sabha.
