Sure,but it may cost you quite a bit.Not to mention the glances you are going to get right from the time of registration to taking out your vehicle every time.

Drive safe.Dont be a terror on the streets

I'd gone for the registration number for my new Bajaj Pulsar 180 in Delhi. We were presented with a sheet with all the numbers available. I really wanted 6346 as that's the default port on the Gnutella 1/2 and most P2P apps out there ...

Unfortunately, it was taken. Had to go with 6316.. which totals out to 7, supposedly lucky. Which it was not, as the bike was stolen 2 years later much to my dismay...

Here are the numbers which were bought for my cars:

KL XX A 131 (800)
KL XX J 11 (Zen)
KL XX A 99 (Lancer)
KL XX B 7676 (i20)

I don't believe in numerology or any related stuff. These numbers were bought just to make the license plate look more legible

This is a cool thread. I've never harboured any particular fascination for numerology so my cars have always been randomly numbered.

Accent was 5274.Since '74 is my year of birth, lots of people assumed it's my birthday. My deadpan answer to that is "no but it's probably the day I was conceived" (am November born)
When I transferred to Karnataka, had to go to the Bangalore RTO for the new number allocation. My number allocated was 4238. I tried my broken Kannada (and whatever charm I could muster in that hellhole) but the guy growled that 4242 would be 2.5K extra. Pittance really, but I'd already paid 43K for the state transfer and wasn't about to shell out a penny more!
My Swift bought second hand last year is 5533. No idea if the previous owner paid extra for it, but someone referred to it as a "fancy" number once and I found that really funny.

Wink Not a VIP but Fancy Number

I paid 5k for getting KA xx xx 2200 for my Optra. I had checked for "9000" (as my mobile number ends with 9000) and the agent told me minimum charges will be 1lac and if the number goes for auction then God Save me. So chose 2200 (for those who understand Punjabi "bayi", for others "bayi" would mean someone respected), I feel its quite fancy

My wish list of VIP/Fancy numbers is: 0001, 0009, 9000, 9999

Drive_or_Die 22, to get numbers XX00 in Delhi, a letter is required from some high ranking official. My uncle had to get a letter from MLA for 9300.

Well - this is pure by chance - but my car's registration reads WB 26 K 27xx, while my dad's car reads WB 26 C 27yy.
So the 26 of the RTO code and 27 at the beginning of the number are same

Delhi is altogether a different game my friend, would suggest get the car registered in nearby small town. My plan is to get PB 25 xx 0001 from my hometown for the SUV I buy (God ,especially money God, help me buy one in couple of years). I believe the number 0001 gets its due respect irrespective of place of Reg.

I wanted to do this for my Optra as well. I paid 1.3 Lac as Road Tax in Bangalore and it would have cost me 30k only. I was ready to shell 1Lac for 0001. But dropped the idea for reasons like, the net cost of car was coming almost equal (due to good discount on car in Bangalore) and wanted to avoid any legal complications in future as I already drive PB registered (without paying Karnataka Road Tax) Zen in Bangalore

Default And the numbers roll on!!!

Yo mates, I wanted to get the number 7000 for the Innova I am taking delivery on monday. I saw that book full of numbers and the broker said I could have what I wanted as long as it wasn't written "GOVT". And yaar most numbers that I could muster to think were with that God-forsaken word. Be it 1 or any of the single numbers, or the single 1000's or other numbers like 1001, 2002 and so on. When I did enquire that if I did wish to get any of the above, what next. The broker gave me a huge smile and said, "nothing saar, you just have to give me a lakh and I shall see what can be done!".

I was already humbled with shelling out so much for the VX model, and settled for the Swity's number, 7500. Only compromise is, when I got that number for the Swifty I shelled out 13k, for the Innova it was 12k. So much for numbers!!!

Cheers

Hello Benzbala, nice to see you from Trichy. My M800 is TN45 AC 0090.

Last week I saw a Tboard Innova with the number 13 (TN 59 XX 13). Yesterday I saw a Swift Dzire with a BIG # 8.

In TamilNadu, the RTO does not allocate the numbers 8, 4 and 13 unless asked for and no one wants to buy these numbers as these are supersticiously supposed to be DRIVEN by accidents

When someone wants to buy a single digit VIP number for free they can ask for a single 8 or 4 or settle for a double digit 13. Display it big and the other vehicles keep the essential 10 feet distance from every corner of your vehicle

Default Folks, A Quick question

As I cud'nt locate(if it was already discussed)

I got a Figo this month and its Regn No. is [TN XX BE 0253]
Is it advisable to put [TN XX BE 253]. Coz thats how i've got it done.

In case if caught by Traffic Police will he bring this up as an issue?

CG 07 0007
CG 07 H 0007
CG 07 LB 0007
CG 07 LJ 0007
CG 07 LX 0007

it wouldn't cost more than 15k in this part of the country. in contrast to this '' CH 01 '' is a bolt from the blue.

@avinaush: I've been caught once for the same reason, i'd reckon four digits to be on safe side.

That's what I like about Mumbai. You're free to keep a single / double / triple digit on your plate if that's what the number is. I don't know about law, but people don't get pulled over for this, for sure. IMO a 1 looks way better than a 0001, the latter defeats the purpose.
