Dear Taxpayers,

This enhancement is part of ongoing effort to further improve taxpayer services. New Features of the revamped E-Invoice Master Information Portal are as follows:

2.  In the past year alone, more than 1.6 crore e-invoices were reported through the new IRPs, demonstrating the robustness and efficiency of the system. Furthermore, GSTN has introduced an internal e-invoice comprehensive health dashboard to further enhance monitoring of the e-invoice ecosystem. As a result of these improvements in the GSTN E-Invoicing System, today we have:

a.    Expansion of IRP Portals: Today, GSTN operates a total of six IRP portals through its partners, running robustly alongside the centralized de-duplication system.

b.   E-Invoicing Reporting Accessibility: All taxpayers who are eligible for e-invoicing can report e-invoices through any of these six IRP portals. The reporting can be done online, via APIs, or through a mobile app, all free of cost, making the process accessible and convenient for taxpayers nationwide.

c.    Hourly Auto population of e-invoices in GSTR-1 from new IRPs. Additionally, we are working with NIC-IRP to enable hourly auto-population of e-invoices in GSTR-1 reported on the NIC-IRP 1&2 portal.

d.   E-invoice download for past six months for both buyers and sellers via e-invoice portals and G2B APIs.

e.   E-invoice QR code verifier App for verification of e-invoice, and search IRN functionality for online verification of IRN.


3.  Additionally, an enhanced version of the e-invoice verifier app, packed with new features, will be launched shortly.
