    E-way Bill is required to be generated where value of goods exceeds Rs. 50,000. In case the goods are being transferred for exhibition or fair purposes, you have to select the appropriate sub-type “Exhibition or Fairs” under the applicable supply type (outward/inward) and fill in the required details of Ship From and Ship Too.
