Government introduce a new registration mark for new vehicles

The Government introduced a new registration mark for new vehicles under the “Bharat series (BH-series)” to facilitate seamless transfer of vehicles, informed the Ministry of Road, Transport and Highways on Saturday. After this, the vehicle owners will not face any problem in getting their vehicle transferred from one state to another.

According to the statement released by the Ministry of Road Transport and Highway – “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,”

The vehicle registration facility under “Bharat series (BH-series)” will be available on voluntary basis to defense personnel, employees of Central Government/State Government/Central/State Public Sector Undertakings and private sector companies/organizations, which have their offices in four or more States/Union territories.

Motor vehicle tax will be levied for two years or in multiple of two. This scheme will facilitate 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.

Similarly, if the value of the vehicles is between Rs 10 to 20 lakh, then on registering in the BH series, the person will have to pay motor vehicle tax of 10 percent.

And if the value of your car is more than 29 lakhs then that person will have to pay 12 percent tax as motor vehicle tax.
