BH Bharat Number Plate Registration Process, Road Tax Rates and FAQs Explained

BH Series Bharat Number Plate now available Online. Know BH Series Number Registration Process with Road Tax Rates as calculated in same

 

BH Bharat Series Number

Gone are the days of State Level Number Plates like DL for Delhi, MH for Maharastra, KA for Karnataka as finally we have Bharat Series Number Plates in India which will start as BH Registration Mark

 

Why Bharat Series Number Plate

As of now rules are whenever a vehicle owner due to transferrable nature of his job move to other state or Union Territory and plan to stay for more than 12 Months . So for using the car there - he also is required to obtain NOC, apply for re-registration in other state, pay applicable road tax in new state as per tax slabs and then apply for refund of tax on pro-rata basis in home state

What Bharat Series Number Plate implies - BH Car Registration Number is Valid acorss India. Thats means Owner due to transferrable nature of job move to any State or Union Territory do not need to re-register car (as otherwise is case where car need to re-register if taken for more than 12 Months)

Thus it simplifies the process as Free Movement to any state or Union Territory without any concern for re-registration and road tax.

 

Road Tax Slabs for BH Series Number Plate

Another key highlight is that Road Tax Slabs will be 

Price of Car Road Tax on EV Road Tax on Petrol, CNG Cars Road Tax on Diesel Cars
Below 10 Lakh 6% 8% 10%
10 Lakh - 20 Lakh 8% 10% 12%
> 20 Lakh 10% 12% 14%

irrespective of engine capacity, ground clearance of car - which otherwise used as classification in state level road Tax.

Important: However, this tax will be applied on Invoice Price of Car and for that matter Invoice Price factors in Discount as what offered on the car. So for a car which say like cost Rs 10 Lakh and offer discount of Rs 36,000 then Road Tax will be calculated for Rs 9.64 Lakh

 

Calculation of Road Tax for Bharat Series Number Plate

Road Tax unlike other states, Union Territories is paid for Lifetime as for 15 Years

But in case of Bharat Series Number - road tax is paid on Pro Rata Basis for every 2 Years and will be calculated as an example

For Instance say Tata Nexon XZ Plus Petrol exshowroom Price is Rs 9,99,900 without any discounts

In this case tax will be calculated as :-   .08*2*999900/15  . Means Rs 10.665 road tax needs to be paid every 2 Years. 

Who are Eligible For Bharat Series Number Plate

Only Salaried are Eligible for Bharat Series Number with even conditions

  • Any Government Employees
  • Any Employee in PSU Undertaking
  • Private Sector Employee but with a condition as that the company where that employee is working should have offices in minimum 4 States or Union Territories 

 

What Documents are Required for Registration

Below are documents for Vehicle Registration for BH Series Number Plate

  • Any Utility Bill / Bank Statement / LIC Policy Copy / Landline Bill (if Aadhar address do not match with current address)

 

Form 60 here means a Letterhead Declaration by Employer that 

  • They have Offices in more than 4 States with Address Details
  • You are Permanent Employee of Company

Here is Form 60 Attached - Download RTO Form 60

 

Whats the Process for Bharat Series Number Plate Registration

At the time of writing this post - As checked in Delhi, UP Dealers, Karnataka Dealers, Maharastra Dealers - all stating that process yet to begin. When checked further - its referred that Allotment of Number Series not yet started. 

Although same expected to begin in 1 to 2 weeks and expected to roll out by Festive Navratri Season and will be available Online through Parivahan

In terms of Process - important to note that entire Process is Digital and no need to submit any physical documents to RTO. Your Car Dealer will only do Process :-

  • Dealer will fill Form 20 for Vehicle Registration on Vahan Portal with Details of Car, Owner, Bank Financing Details etc.
  • There he will select Bharat Series Number Plate as registration option
  • Will upload your ID, Address Proof and Office ID Card or Form 60 
  • The same will go for approval in RTO - who will check and verify documents and approve same
  • Once approved - Dealer can then pay in Road Tax as what collected from consumer on 2 Year Pro Rata Basis
  • After Payment of Road Tax is Bharat Series Number Allotted on Random Basis and Fee Payment Receipt is what issued in favor of customer.

After every 2 years, then Owner needs to directly pay in Road Tax on Vahan Site by verifying with Car Registration Number and Chassis Number.

 

What the Number Plate will Look Like

This will be Number of Bharat Series Car where

  • YY - Denotes Year of Registration. So if you car getting registered in 2021 it will come as 21
  • BH - Signifies Bharat Series Registration Mark
  • #### - This is 4 Digit Vehicle Registration Number as generated randomly by System, Ex. 0789
  • XX = These are what Alphabet Series. Like AA, AB, AC, CD

So BH Series Number Plate will look like - 21 BH 0789 AA

This will be embossed in Black Letters on White Number Plate

  • Commercial Registration is not Allowed
  • Any Fancy Number or VIP Number request is not permitted as number randomly generated by system.

So thats the process of BH Series Number Plate.

When we have to re-register the vehicle after 2 years, will the charges be the same as the initial registration or will it change?

Hello Gagan Ji- Your vlogs in YouTube are very insightful and helpful me frame-up my vehicle buying plan to be more practical rather that stretch myself and do an impulse purchase.
Regarding new BH plate and eligibility: I work in the healthcare division of a multi-nation company. For being eligible as a Private Sector Employee, does my division need to have offices in 4 different states or my company needs to have 4 offices which can be different divisions?
Would appreciate some insight/ clarification.
