Dear Jerome,

Hi. Greetings !!

BH Bharat Series is applicable at time of buying new car provided car is
> to be registered in name of Individual
> That Individual is salaried and working as full time employee in Central Government or Large PSU or MNC Company
> Also if that MNC is private or PSU company that it should have presence in atleast 4 different states, UT

So if you meet in above condition then is eligible to get BH Bharat Series Registration Plate on new Car which essentially will start with BH Series followed by year (attached latest one)

Now this number plate can not be applied online or directly on self, rather is done through dealer showroom who need to submit your documents to RTO which essentially are
> Your Aadhaar Copy (provided address matches in UID with present address)
> PAN Card
> Office ID Card (for Government Employee or PSU Employee) / Form 60 for Private Sector Employee
> Any Utility Bill / Bank Statement / LIC Policy Copy / Landline Bill (if Aadhar address do not match with current address)

Form 60: Means a Letterhead Declaration by Employer that
a) they have Offices in more than 4 States with Address Details
b) You are Permanent Employee of Company

Download RTO Form 60

BH NUmber Plate in Tamilnadu: See its an initiative by Central Government
Also road tax rates are relative lower where 10% road tax would be charged as against 15% which is what charged by State Goverment in Kerala on car like Slavia Automatic. Also tax is paid on pro rata basis which makes upfront cost lower

So - while the rule is applicable PAN India but very few state government has not implemented same citing questions on ex-chequer loss and implementation process. To best of our update - this is not implemented till January 2022 but however no updates so far if same implemented in Feb 2022 or not - suggest to check with local delaer or RTO on whether BH series started or not.

If started then given process as shared above will be applicable, else you have to wait till time state government implements same,

Hope should help !!

Dear Jerome,

BH Series number plate started last year in September 2021 and kicked off with 5 states, UT and in last 6 months - there are more than 20 States/UT who adopted for same .

Ministry of road transport and highways in trying to implement to rest of left out states and Union territory
Although there is no time frame - but expect same to roll out soon in left over states, UTs as target of Ministry to implement one nation - one tax and seamless process for salaried in event of state transfer.

Hope should help !!

Dear Jerome jee

Here is a news article link (date 17 Feb 22) which gives some hints that TN government is under the process of introducing BH series registration.

https://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/city/chennai/tn-okays-bh-series-vehicle-registration/articleshow/89627174.cms


Further, temporary registration is valid for one month only and there after extending its validity may be a difficult task and the dealer may not help you in this regard. Secondly, after getting temporary registration, getting the permanent registration will be your responsibility and the dealer may not serve you.

I am also passing through a similar dilemma and I decided to wait further.

Regards
