This varies from state to state and 'car number portability' was implemented by some states. But last year i remember the central govt raising security concerns about this and Maharashtra was contemplating rolling it back. There is already a thread on this topic: http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/indian...r-new-car.html (Transfering Old VIP Number to New Car)

Default New procedure in Taminadu

I had opted for a VIP No. 4444 for Toyota Fortuner 4WD at RTO, Tambaram circle. I was told that the original invoice must have any of the ruling party MLA signature as a prerequisite, secondly this original invoice has to be made present for the transport Minister's sign at his table after which this no. will be allotted to the Customer (me). All this at an extra fee of Rs.8k (this does not include MLA fees nor did he demand one)
The procedure of obtaining a ruling party MLA signature was done yesterday, however the transport minister will sign it earliest by Friday as of now and then I had to pay the Government fees of Rs.60k at the RTO concerned (Tambaram).
An year before for my Chevrolet Beat TCDi, the procedure for the same no. 4444 was just presenting the original invoice at the Dy.Secretary - Transport Dept's table and I got approval within a day. And then I paid the RTO fees of Rs.40k. also the extra fees at that time at the transport dept office was Rs.5k.
I now understand that this current procedure is just a icing in the cake for ruling party MLA and the minister as a whole, But why 4~5 days for approval is the question ?

Wow! Never heard of anything as absurd. All our cars in Mumbai and Navi Mumbai RTOs have pre selected (choice) or fancy numbers and we have never had to do anything of this sort. This whole MLA thing you are talking about makes the procedure so much more time consuming and irritating! And I wonder why discriminate between the Ruling and Opposition Party MLAs?! Also it seems the Transport Minister in TN doesn't have much work, and so he is burdened with more files to sign off on.

I wanted a good number for my new XUV, somehow my family has stuck with the number 5 and 0 so it was 5000 for the lancer,5500 for the old xylo. So i was looking for 500 for xuv,but in tamilnadu all such numbers are for the government and you cannot get one thats what the RTO told me.
So i had so settle with 4555 by paying Rs16,000/-.

What the RTO told you is true but its false that "numbers are for the Government", please find the details below
Advance_Reg_No.PDF

All single digits from 1-20, all 1111 3333 4444 5555 - 9999, all 1000 2000 3000-9000 and 666 333 999 and specially 4777 now can be booked only by obtaining a GO from the government. The process and time for obtaining the GO now is irritating rather than the RTO process or fees for it.

With continuation my previous post #558 I got my GO today after placing a request with the Transport Dept on 26th August and when I got my GO it says request placed on 29th August, but again why so much delay is the question after coughing up enough money

7007: if from same series 15+5 if jumping series 45+5
Hope that helps. Btw visit the RTO office and check for availability .number once booked is valid only for 30 days so be confirmed about date of delivery and then book

There are no official rates for VIP/fancy numbers in Delhi as of now, though they are planning to start auctioning.
The VIP numbers are only issued to MP/MLAs on request at their letter heads or to the senior bureaucrats of the Delhi Govt.
Your best bet would be to use some political connection, with the elections approaching in Delhi in 2014, your local councilor/MLA might oblige by issuing a letter for you.
Else there are many a brokers out there who can get you the same with a "convenience" charge. You may contact the car dealership/ Civil lines regional transport authority (FYI Civil lines authority is solely authorized to issue/maintain records of VIP numbers now). You may find a few brokers/dalals there who can help you out (illegally).

Regards

Thanks a lot for such a quick & detailed response

So basically if one has a letter from a senior person in some ministry or from a MLA/MP one would not have to pay anything ?

Just for an idea, how much would number like 2700/0027 or 2727 cost if taken from a broker ?
