As part of efforts to broaden the BH series ecosystem, the Ministry of Road Transport and Highways (MoRTH) has permitted the conversion of conventional vehicle registrations into Bharat Series (BH) numbers. In the past, only brand-new cars could use the BH series insignia.
The MoRTH stated in a public statement that various suggestions for improving the BH series environment have been received during the implementation of the registration mark rules for the BH series.
In order to further improve the citizen’s quality of life, the ministry has also suggested amending rule 48 to allow flexibility in where applicants for the BH series may submit their applications—either at their place of residence or their place of employment. Additionally, it stated that the Working Certificate that employees of the private sector must present has been enhanced further to guard against abuse.
