To facilitate seamless transfer of vehicles, the Ministry of Road Transport & Highways has introduced a new registration mark for new vehicles "Bharat series (BH-series)”. A vehicle bearing this registration mark shall not require the assignment of a new registration mark when the owner of the vehicle shifts from one state to another. This will address the pain points of the vehicle re-registration while moving to another state under section 47 of the Motor Vehicles Act, 1988. Under the act, 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.

A passenger vehicle user re-registration is a multistep process that includes NOC from the parent state, assignment of new registration marks to a new state, new payments and refunds from the parent state.  steps to re-register a vehicle:
 
This vehicle registration facility under “Bharat series (BH-series)” will be available voluntarily to defense personnel, employees of central government, state government, central, state public sector undertakings and private sector organizations, which have their offices in four or more states or union territories.

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.
