The auction was quite heated and he had more than two competitors upto that price.

As a saving grace, the vehicle was much costlier - a BMW X5
Is that number of a BMW X5 or a Hyundai Verna.Althought it was then reported likewise, as per MVD website KL-01-AZ-1 is a Hyundai.Amusing!!!

I was lucky when it came to registration numbers of my vehicles. I am a fan of fancy numbers , especially double and triple digits and numbers that have repeat numericals one after the other.
But not to that extent that I felt like paying extra for them.

My Bullet Electra bought first hand has 2325, my second hand Bullet 500 has 4555 and my Figo first hand has 7775. All ending in 5.

7777 in the same series and same RTO as my Figo went to a Scorpio(old generation) owned by a local real estate guy named Sevenraj. People in Bangalore East would have noticed his Scorpio since it has his name and the number seven pasted all over his car.

Regards

He also wears just red and white clothing just like his car. I've seen his family at a school once about a year ago - all dressed in red and white.

I am planning on selling my '02 Fiat Palio limited edition with the number plate KA 02 MK 1 in the next couple of months. I got the number plate in 2002 for a few thousand Rupees. The main reason was to make a boatload of money when I sold it !
Any advice on how much I can expect for the plates ? (I know the car isnt worth much).

A Toyota Fortuner whizzed past last evening on my way home. It sported #1. The series was from Two-wheelers. Guess he might have spent more than a tidy sum for the No. as there weren't any logos / stickers of any sort like a political party, Defence, etc. Also the font used was quite classy. But.. he was weaving in & out of traffic at quite a bit of speed considering the vehicle size.

I registered my car at TN-18 (Red Hills RTO Chennai) last week. I was surprised that all the nos that say are allocated to the government are available to the general public. Below are the costs (for TN-18 RTO only)

No. "1"- Rs.1 Lakh + no objection certificate from the TN secretariat.
Serial "2-20" - Rs.50,000/- + no objection certificate from the TN secretariat.
Serial nos like "1111,2222 - 9999" - Rs.50,000/- + no objection certificate from the TN secretariat.
Serial nos like "0111,0222 - 0999" + Rs.40,000/- + no objection certificate from the TN secretariat.
No. "786" - Rs.75,000/- + no objection certificate from the TN secretariat.

General nos.
For 4-wheelers that cost above 4L - Rs.16,000/-
For 4-wheelers that cost below 4L - Rs.8,000/-
For 2-wheelers - Rs.2,000/-

I choose 1515 and paid Rs.16,000/- for it.

As an aside, I wonder where all this money that is made by the RTO's for the sale of these fancy numbers, goes.

It does not look like they are doing anything with it for our roads, that much is certain.

Regarding VIP Numbers in Delhi, does 1313 actually come under the 1L Category? Being a superstitious number, I thought people will stay away from it but media links point the same price.

Can anyone especially from Delhi comment on the same? I'm actually looking for this number and further interested in getting it from 'DL 13' RTO.

No specific knowledge as such but I know for sure that some people are quite insistent that 13 is lucky for them. typically people who are born on the 13th of the month but not limited to these.

DL-13-XX-1313 will be quite a number to sport I am not optimistic that you will get it cheap

I have a slightly different query. Can one retain his/her existing number while selling their car?

One certainly can. At least in Delhi and Haryana. Speaking of personal experience, a family member got the number DDZ XX transferred from an old car to a new one.

However, there are a few conditions; viz,
- the car with the number to be transferred must be in your name for at least three years
- the new car and old car should be in the name of same person
- you get a maximum of one month window period for getting the number transferred to new car after procuring the transfer permission from the RTO

Regards

The entire thing revolves around the $$$ involved, rightly said
I've seen one Cruze with DL 13 XX 1313, the only till date.

Thanks Grr7, that's a great insight! I've seen quite a few ads on Quikr and OLX selling old cars with VIP Numbers (DXX xx) Series, attracting buyers with the Transfer Clause on new cars but your post certainly helped understanding the details of the procedure.
