The Commercial Taxes Department of Karnataka has introduced e-Sugam to upload the transportation details of notified goods before the movement of such goods. The dealer has to first upload the transportation details of despatch/receipt of goods to obtain an acknowledgement called eSUGAM . For each transaction, the eSUGAM acknowledgement is generated with a unique number, and is a valid document for transportation of goods. This number can be quoted at the check post, for quick clearance of goods.

In sales invoice, purchase invoice, delivery note, receipt note, debit note and credit note, the option Is e-Sugam Applicable? is introduced. After selecting the stock item, sales/purchase ledger and VAT ledger, set the option Is e-Sugam Applicable to Yes . In the VAT e-Sugam Details screen, enter the transportation details with the unique e-Sugam number obtained in the acknowledgement while uploading the details to the department website. The details of this transaction can be exported in XML format to eSUGAM.xml file.

For passing  transactions with e-Sugam details, refer to this link.
