We study the prospect for observing the lightest and heavier CP-even neutral Higgs bosons( ϕ= h and H) in their decays to flavor violating bs¯ (with charge conjugation) at the proposed Large Hadron electron Collider(LHeC), with center-of-mass energy approximately 1.296 TeV, in the framework of the Two Higgs Doublet Model Type-III, assuming a four-zero texture in the Yukawa matrices and a general Higgs potential. We consider scenarios in agreement with the current experimental data of flavor physics constraints and Higgs physics. We consider the charge current production processes: νeϕqf, with the flavor violating decays of the Higgs bosons, that leads to 3-jets + E/T. We find that the SM Higgs boson, h, would be shown up within the some scenarios of our model, approximately 1-2σ at the LHeC, with 100 fb-1 of data. We also find that second heavier neutral Higgs boson, H, with mass 150 GeV would have 1-σ significances. We expect that our finding will show up at LHeC with the designed luminosity, if the latter is upgraded by a factor of 2-3. This leads to significances of 2-3σ and hence one can argue that the scenarios of our model could be the most viable extension of the 2HDMs with Flavour Changing Neutral Currents generated at tree level and controlled by the four-zero texture approach in the Yukawa matrices.
