The High Court of Kerala in its judgement has held that where the assessee has defaulted in not uploading Part B to the eway bill and the vehicle carrying goods are detained by the Inspecting Team, in that case the vehicle with the goods be released to the assessee on furnishing a bank guarantee for tax and penalty found due and a simple bond without sureties for the value of the goods in the form as prescribed under rule 140(1).

Facts of the Case:

  1. The vehicle was detained by the Inspecting Team for reason of Part-B of the e-way bill having not been uploaded.
  2. The learned Counsel for the appellant submits that Part-B was uploaded even before the notice and order.
  3. The detention itself was on 09.09.2018 and the subsequent uploading of the Part-B would not efface the defect as pointed out by the Detaining Officer.

Held:

The High Court held, “We, hence, direct that the vehicle with the goods be released to the appellant on furnishing a bank guarantee for tax and penalty found due and a simple bond without sureties for the value of the goods in the form as prescribed under Rule 140(1) of the CGST Rules.
