Even people are paying lakhs of rupees for VIP car numbers as the competition is so high.

Got PB 03 X-3330 without paying a dime. Waited for the VIP number related bidding to get over and scooped whatever was left.
Not getting vehicle registered from the agency itself saved me some moolah plus getting a nice looking number. Had to shell only 18K as registration charges for the ANHC.

Could you throw some light on how exactly does this kind of bidding happen? Also, does it apply to all states or just Punjab?

Yes as far as I know, this bidding takes places in most states whenever a new series is introduced. The repective DTO usually placed an advertisemet in the local news papers informing the same as well.

The booking amounts range from 1K to 10K depending on the number, and have to be submitted prior to the bidding process. If you are the sole claimant for that number then fine, else it goes for bidding.

I haven't seen the bidding process in person, so others may be able to shed more light on it.

@avisidhu: So basically any number that is not taken or bid by anybody can be given for free, right? But from where does one get to know which are those numbers that weren't bid?

My brother's favorite number 1789, all his rides hold the same number, even his mobile number (9XXXX 17890) & landline (04XX-XX17890) too

Paid between 2k and 5k for 1789.

My Old rides 1114, 6767 lucky enough not paid a single penny

That's the bit where the 'jaan pehchaan' bit comes into picture. It's easier in a small city, but im not sure how it will work in a place like Delhi.

There are two things you will have to do, find out some person who can get the list of numbers available, and find the dates of bidding. All you need to do is ask that person to get some number as soon as the bidding is complete.

Another aspect is that there arent too many people running after VIP number in smaller towns, so a lot of numbers are left vacant post bidding. It's unlikely that the same would happen in Delhi (Im assuming you are trying to get a number from Delhi). Hope that helps.

Makes perfect sense. In a place like Delhi almost everybody is after the VIP numbers so yes the likelihood of getting it done the way you did it is pretty low. Thanks for all the help though.
