The state transport department has begun issuing BH (‘Bharat’) series of registration numbers for a select group of vehicle owners, to ensure seamless transfer of government employees from one state to another.
So far three vehicles have been issued BH series registration, including two at KR Puram RTO.
The government in August had notified a new vehicle registration regime that will free vehicle owners from the re-registration process when they shift from one state or Union territory to another.

“This vehicle registration facility under ‘Bharat series (BH-series)’ will be available on a voluntary basis to defence personnel, employees of central government/ state government/ central/ state public sector undertakings and private sector companies/organisations, which have their offices in four or more states/ Union territories,” the Ministry of Road Transport and Highways (MoRTH) had said in a statement.
Vehicles from other states migrating to Karnataka have to intimate the authorities within 15 days from the date of entry and register in the local RTO within the next 12 months. The process involves a whole set of procedures besides payment of fees.
