Registration series for vehicles for seamless transfer across states introduced

A new vehicle registration regime to free vehicle owners from re-registration process when they move from one /UT to another notified

The Ministry of Road Transport and Highways today notified that it has introduced a new registration mark for new vehicles ― series (BH-series). A vehicle with BH mark will not require a new registration mark when the owner shifts from one to another.

It said, “This facility will be available on voluntary basis to defence personnel, employees of central and govt; central and state PSUs; and private sector companies having their offices in 4 or more states/UTs.”

The government has notified a new vehicle registration regime that will free vehicle owners from re-registration process when they shift from one /union territory to another.

The ministry said that 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.

“Station relocation occurs with both government and private sector employees. Such movements create a sense of unease in the minds of much employees with regard to transfer of registration from the parent 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 transport ministry said.

A passenger vehicle user takes the following steps to no-register a vehicle:

  • A no objection certificate from the parent state for assignment of a new registration mark in another state
  • Assignment of a new registration mark after the road tax on pro-rata basis is paid in the new state.
  • Application for refund of the road tax in the parent state.

Format of series (BH-series) registration mark

YY BH #### XX

YY – Year of first registration

BH- Code for Series

– 0000 to 9999 (randomized)

XX- Alphabets (AA to ZZ)

This provision to get a refund from the parent state on pro-rata basis is a very cumbersome process.

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 or union territories of India upon relocation to a new state or union territory. 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.

It further said that 2% extra charge would be levied for diesel vehicles, while electric vehicles will be charged 2 per cent less tax.

In case the vehicle bears the BH-series registration mark, the motor vehicle tax shall be levied electronically.

The new rules also called Central Motor Vehicles (20th Amendment) Rules, 2021, shall come into force with effect from 15 September of this year. The registration mark for BH-series vehicle will be generated randomly through the portal.
