The road transport ministry has come up with a new registration mark for new vehicles — Bharat Series (BH-series) — to ensure seamless transfer of personal vehicles across states.
The government has notified a new vehicle registration regime that will free vehicle owners from the re-registration process when they shift from one state/Union Territory to another.
“This vehicle registration facility under ‘Bharat series (BH-series)’ will be available on voluntary basis to defence personnel, employees of central government/ state government/central/state PSUs and private sector companies/organisations, which have their offices in four or more states/Union Territories,” the ministry of road transport and highways said.
This scheme, it said, will facilitate free movement of personal vehicles across India upon relocation. An IT-based solution for vehicle registration is one such effort as “one of the pain points in the vehicle registration process that needed attention was re-registration of a vehicle while moving to another state”.
