The e-Way Bill and e-Invoice System have enhanced the scope of crucial security feature known as 2-Factor Authentication (2FA) by extending the same to taxpayers who have an Annual Aggregate Turnover (AATO) exceeding Rs 20 crore effective from November 1, 2023.
This requirement follows the earlier implementation for taxpayers with an AATO of over Rs 100 crore, which took effect on August 20, 2023.
Accordingly from November 1, 2023, it is compulsory for all taxpayers with an AATO of more than Rs 20 crore to utilize 2FA while accessing the e-Way Bill and e-Invoice System.
This update has been announced on September 11, 2023 at https://einvoice1.gst.gov.in, which aims to bolster the safety and maintain the integrity of the platform.
