Centralised registration for private vehicles from Wednesday

Thiruvananthapuram: The proposed Bharat (BH) series centralised registration for private vehicles will come into effect from Wednesday.

The Central government proposed the BH series to do away with interstate registrations, now required to use a private vehicle outside its registered State for more than one year.Several States raised their concerns over the BH series registration at an online meeting the joint secretary of the Central Ministry of Surface Transport convened on Monday. The rollout of the new series will be delayed by a week only if the Centre accepts the concerns and issues a new order.

The Centre, however, took a stand that it had included the changes the States, including Kerala, had suggested while the draft order was circulated. The final order was issued after making the suggested changes, and if further amendments are required, it could be made after implementing the order.
