Hey guys, I've been offered Rs 6 lakh for my Maruti Esteem 1995 which bears registration No. 1 e.g. XYZ 1. The heart and the mind are at loggerheads over to "sell or not to sell."

There are rumours that once etching of registration number is made compulsory on car windshields, number transferability may not then be possible.

Here is the amount which I paid for my bikes.

Hero Honda CBZ MH 1X Q 2244 Rs. 1000 (no chai paani)
Hero Honda Karizma MH 1X L 0001 Rs. 10,000 (Rs. 28,000 chaipaani)
Honda Activa MH 1X AM 0005 Rs. 5000 (no chai paani)
Honda Activa MH 1X AQ 0003 Rs. 5000 (no chai paani)

Soon there would be a new addition to the list A Bullet 500. I am trying to get the number MH 1X XX 0500. have been asked to pay Rs. 10,000 all inclusive. I am in the process of bargaining as the delivery of the bike is still a couple of months away.

The link below gives a link for California DMV for online ordering of personalized license plates. The price ranges between $50 to $100 for the plates and additional charges for registration, renewal, retention etc. And yes, the rules vary across States.

So you are getting less than a lac for your car and in excess of 5 L just for the number ?
I'd take it eyes closed !

Buy yourself a free brand new car with surely a VIP, but a lesser fancy number for about 10-20k, with all that money.

This happend before that, do you remeber the land scam i delhi where the Guy who was running the Canteen in Deli Vidhan sabha had ammased 1500 DDA plots in his name and had over 25 cars and each car costing over 10 lakhs and all had a single digit number.

Okay i bought my SX4 ZXI in may 2009 and asked for a singe digit number and they said you have to get a letter form the local MLA. Any way managed to to get a 4 digit number and paid 17K for it.

The number IS DL-2C-XX-5005.

^^^ How is this awesome? Isn't this considered violating the law? Shouldn't the registration number be PB <district number> <Alphabets> <Running Serial> format?

if the owner of the car isnt concerned about violating the law, why should I be ?? It is just the no. look super fundo (IMO)!! just chill bro !!!

and it also might be possible that it is an old reg. no. transferred to this accord.

There is a scheme Punjab Transport Deptt. that if you have an old car, you can surrender the regn. no. of the same to be allotted to your (only yours) new/other car.

This owner must be having a VIP number for his old car, which he has got allotted for the new one... this one is not illegal.

BTW, the car is a V6 Accord.

That is what we are hare for... sharing gyan.
It is sort of craze in Punjab. Not every time you can get hands to VIP numbers (those are auctioned these days). This way it is cheaper. Moreover, a non-VIP number will look unique & catch the eye. Say - If my car has a regn no. - DL 3CAB - XXXX, it would look regular. But, if the same has got a old no. say - DLC-XXXX, it will be easily spotted & many people will be curious to know how I get the number.

I believe the old vehicle regn surrender scheme in favour of new vehicle are operational in most parts of country (even in Delhi, as I have seen few cars with old numbers), but not sure. Can somebody check & confirm this?
