Yes, very much. Both the cars I mentioned are brand new 2012 cars. In fact, one of the cars is bhpian-owned.

Any Idea if the official prices for Fancy Number/Number request have increased in Tamilnadu? One of the sales representatives told me yesterday that all the prices had doubled and that they could give us a receipt for the amount paid.

The official website does not reflect any revision in prices.

Guys, I have a query.

I own a vehicle with a fancy number which was purchased for 'X' amount.

I am purchasing another vehicle now, are the below two options feasible?

The old vehicle is registered in TN and the re-registration would happen at KA.

1) Refund of the life-time tax and fancy registration charges for my old vehicle, given that the vehicle will be re-registered in another state

OR

2) Transfer of the old fancy number to the new vehicle and re-register the old vehicle

TIA.

You can claim for refund of Life-time tax that you paid after you get it registered in a different state. Refund amount is pro-rata based on how long you used the vehicle in that state. However, the charges you paid for fancy number would not be refundable.

Registration number, once alloted to a vehicle cannot be transferred to a different vehicle. I've read in this forum that this was possible long back but at least in recent times, I don't think this is an available option. Again, these rules could differ slightly from state to state (especially around fancy number allotment as this is controlled by state govt policy) as long as it doesn't contradict with the central Motor Vehicles Rules.

Logically speaking, fancy number is just a route for state govt. to milk the rich and I see no reason why they would add a clause that would prevent them from doing so. If someone is very particular about getting a specific number for his new vehicle, he would have to shell out more money again, meaning more revenue for the state.

VIP or fancy registration numbers are very much allowed to be transferred to new vehicle and the older vehicle gets the new registration number. This is allowed at least in Delhi (RTO - Under Hill Road) and am not sure about other states. I have recently done the same.

Our old Fiat 1100D (1967) had a nice plate: 101

Many said the number is very auspicious!

Yes, they have. It's 15k for a number with 1000 of the running series and 45k for any other number.

I am sorry, I do not actually remember when & how our car was registered. I was too young to understand these things that how a no. plate helps the car to move on the road, when Dad used to say that its 'absolutely necessary'! Those days, I just argued that a car with fuel is all we should need!!
However, I will try to get this data and update you with the information.

Regards.

Oh ok got it....
Yup Octays number is a proper fancy VIP number.
I agree 2930 and 1985 just spell good while talking. But the Esteem's number can also be considered VIP. It had costed us a 7K back in 1994

Seriously, though- any number you pay for would be a VIP number no? I always find it a little weird that people would actually shell out extra for a number like 1314, for example, or 5490, but trust me people do pay for those!
