Regarding: APVAT Act, 2005 and CST Act 1956– eWaybills for inter state movement of incoming and outgoing goods vehicles- Exemption of mandatory usage of eWaybills to PSU Oil Companies- Goods transported to/from Yanam- Modified Instructions issued
The attention of all the Deputy Commissioner(CT)s in the divisions is invited to the references cited.
In the reference 3rd cited PSU Oil Companies(OMCs) namely M/s IOCL,BPCL and HPCL requested to exempt them from mandatory use of eWaybills as they had supply locations situated in remote areas where there is connectivity problem and since they were dealing with essential products delay in transportation would adversely affect the economy of the country. In view of this, the department vide reference 4th cited, had exempted the Public Sector Oil Companies namely IOCL,HPCL and BOCL from mandatory usage of eWaybills provided the goods vehicles are covered by Invoices/ Delivery Challans pre printed with the logos of the OMCs and also the Transporter declarations during the interstate movement of goods.
In this regard, the Deputy Commissioner(CT),Visakhapatnam in the reference 5th cited stated that Petroleum products are reported to be moving from Andhra Pradesh towards Yanam(Pondicherry) in huge quantities beyond the consumption requirement of Yanam population and also returning to the nearby places in Andhra Pradesh clandestinely, thereby causing huge loss of revenue to the state of Andhra Pradesh. He therefore requested to issue instructions to insist on eWaybills for goods vehicles going to and coming from Yanam.
Under these circumstances, the Circular instructions issued in reference 4th cited exempting PSU Oil Companies from mandatory usage of eWaybills are modified as follows.
Henceforth, Public Sector Oil Companies namely IOCL,HPCL and BOCL are exempted from mandatory usage of Waybills/eWaybills for goods vehicles moving within the state or on interstate movement except goods vehicles going to or coming from Yanam (Pondicherry). The goods vehicles shall be accompanied by Invoices/ Delivery Challans pre printed with the logos of the OMCs and also the Transporter declarations during the interstate movement of goods. The eWaybills are mandatory for the PSU Oil Companies when they transport goods to/ from Yanam.
All the Officers of the state are requested to follow the above instructions.
