New Delhi: The Centre has introduced a new registration mark for new vehicles of Bharat series (BH-series) to facilitate seamless transfer of vehicles across States.
According to a notification issued by the Ministry of Road Transport and Highways, a vehicle bearing BH-series tag will not require assignment of a new registration mark when the owner of the vehicle shifts from one State to another.
This vehicle registration facility will be available on a voluntary basis to defence personnel, employees of Central and State Governments, Public Sector Undertakings (PSUs). It will also be available for private sector companies which have their offices in four or more States and Union Territories.
The motor vehicle tax will be levied for two years or in multiple of two, the Ministry said. This scheme will facilitate free movement of personal vehicles across States and UTs upon relocation.
After completion of the 14th year, the motor vehicle tax will be levied annually which will be half of the amount which was charged earlier for the vehicle, the Ministry said.
