How To Apply Bharat Series Number Plates?
The Bharat Series number plates were introduced by the Ministry of Road, Transport and Highways (MoRTH) in August last year. The registration for BH number series started in September 2021. The BH number series was introduced with the idea of reducing the burden of transferring vehicle registrations from one state to another.
For example, if a car with MH number plate is registered in Maharashtra, it can run for only 12 months in any other state. If the owner decides to move to the new state, he will have to get the vehicle registered in that state. All this comes under the Motor Vehicles Act, 1988, section 47.
Apart from this, you must have often seen that MH, HR, UP, MP are written on the number plate of vehicles plying on the road. These numbers mean according to the state’s registration. Now BH will be written under the Bharat series on the plate of the vehicles. This series issued by the Ministry of Road Transport is voluntary and not mandatory. The number plates of the India series will be of black and white color with a white background and a black number on it. The number on the plate will start with BH and will be followed by the last two digits of the year in which the registration took place.
