Mines 7089. Paid 1k for it. The Maruti guy oversold it saying 789 meant progress(upward going numbers in sequence). Yeah sure, ever since I got my car, I've been having some trouble or the other so I guess it did mean progress..... not for me but for MASS! I keep coming back for repairs! hahahahaha

One can do it directly while registering a car at the RTO, or thru an agent which costs a little but saves time and waiting or even the dealers do it thru their agents. All of it costs money[official charge+ service charge]. The RTO has a list of the numbers and the premium.

I have always gotten it done thru an agent. The dealers keep a fat margin on registration hence I prefer getting a local agent to do it for me and pay him 3000 or so.
But I do find that certain agents get greedy when they know they are registering an expensive car. Whereas the same number in a cheaper car is done with ease.
Scooby- Do you have a particular reliable agent at thane RTO that you always use?

I am a Dealer principle and we have to register all display cars and test drive cars.

I avoided this fact noting the forum policy about commercial promotion of any particular dealership.

I had a white Zen with a 7777 number plate in Bangalore. Had paid about 5K for it in 2003. Fetched me at least 10K more than the normal market value in 2007.

You would be lucky if you convinced someone that a VIP number plate is justifying a higher asking price. I suppose if the car is in top condition, the plate could add a bit to the asking price as it can be projected as a very well maintained and cared-for vehicle.

PS: Another thing I noticed on my only trip to Delhi a year ago; a much higher percentage of cars in DL have special plates as compared to what I notice in Mumbai.

I have seen classified advt mention Fancy Number as one of the attributes of the vehicle.

How much it adds value, I have no idea.
Maybe for some people its very important.

There was some news about a new rule that would allow owners to retain the numbers. Dont know what happened to it.

You can probably ask for 1K-2K extra for the value of car that you are selling.

Well, then again when you sell a car, 1K-2K usually looks insignificant which brings back to the story that a VIP number may not fetch you a higher price

Flyingspur, each series has 9999 numbers and only certain numbers are percieved to be special. The number of cars with special numbers in Delhi and Mumbai will be exactly same.

This is because the Govt came out with a new series like in place of DL-2C, it would be DL-2F and one can choose whatever combine within a given stipulation.

Plus Delhi being the political capital, every second person wants to show their importance and will have a Fancy NUMBER
