Highlights

  • New 'BH series' registration mark has been introduced for new vehicles
  • To facilitate free movement of vehicles across States/UTs upon relocation
  • The motor vehicle tax will be levied for two years or in multiple of two

In a bid to facilitate seamless transfer of vehicles, the Ministry of Road, Transport and Highways (MoRTH) on Saturday announced a new registration mark for new vehicles - the Bharat series or BH-series. According to an official notification issued by the ministry, a vehicle bearing this registration mark will not require a new registration mark when the owner of the vehicle shifts from one state to another. The vehicle registration facility under 'Bharat series' or BH-series will be available voluntarily to Defense personnel, employees of Central Government, State Government, Central / State Public Sector Undertakings (PSUs), and private sector companies/organizations, which have their offices in four or more States / Union territories.

The ministry said in an official statement, "Government has taken a host of citizen-centric steps to facilitate mobility. An IT-based solution for vehicle registration is one such effort. However, one of the pain points in the vehicle registration process that needed attention was re-registration of a vehicle while moving to another state."

This scheme will facilitate free movement of personal vehicles across States/UTs of India upon relocation to a new State/UT.

The ministry further said in the notification that station relocation occurs with both Government and private sector employees. Such movements create a sense of unease in the minds of such employees concerning the transfer of registration from the parent state to another state as, under section 47 of the Motor Vehicles Act, 1988, a person is allowed to keep the vehicle for not more than 12 months in any state other than the state where the vehicle is registered, but a new registration with the new state-registering authority has to be made within the stipulated time of 12 months.

The motor vehicle tax will be levied for two years or in multiple of two. This scheme will facilitate the free movement of personal vehicles across States/UTs of India upon relocation to a new State/UT. After completion of the fourteenth year, the motor vehicle tax shall be levied annually which shall be half of the amount which was charged earlier for that vehicle.
