Default VIP Car numbers

I always pay 20k in DD the RTO to block my number now. I have had the same number from my first Hero Puch Turbo Sport ( my first vehicle). I currently have all cars with the same number. Initially in Bangalore it was a 5k and then it was raised to 20k.

While buying my car in October last year (MH02 registration), I wanted the same number as my last car's. It was 2819, which isn't a fancy number, but at least it would have been easier to remember. I was told that it would cost me 10k to get it.
However, I'm pretty sure if you want something more exclusive, like 777 or 555, it'll cost much more than that.

Actually for us numbers such as 5825 and like aren't fancy, but for the Transport Department, Every number which is beyond the running number is fancy. And for that, they have fixed some price which the person has to pay to avail it. Simply Nonsense thing IMO.

In fact, among all the Government Departments, the Transport Department is the most corrupt. Anyone here working in this particular department, If found offensive, please ignore. This is just my opinion.

Hello Everyone,

My Aspire is getting delivered on the 20th of this month and i am looking for a ''Decent'' number for my ride. I had checked on the Vahan Site (Noida, UP) and it is asking for an ID proof to book a Fancy number which ranges between 3k to 15k.

I want to know if the address proof should have the same address where we live currently(its not)? The address proof is from Kanpur (UP) but i want to register my car in Noida. Is it possible? Anyone who knows an RTO guy in Noida?.

Ideally, you will need to have the address proof (one that is acceptable by the RTO) of the place you want to get your vehicle registered at. So if you want a Noida license plate, you will be required to show that you're staying there.

But, YES - It is possible to register your car in Noida. There are agents who will register a car for you in another city, even if you don't stay there. However, I'm not sure what the penalty is if the cops ever investigate (though, I doubt they ever will).

A vanity plate bearing car registration number '0001' in Delhi was bought at a recent auction for Rs 16 lakh, the highest amount paid to date for a fancy number.

Some fun fact from the news article - From 2014 to date, the Delhi Transport department has earned nearly Rs 1.83 crore just by e-auctioning the number "0001" in different series (different strings of alphabets).

In case you were wondering how much the RTO makes from VIP number plates!

Quote:
The four city RTOs at Tardeo, Andheri, Borivli and Wadala sold 6,652 VIP registration numbers in the past eight months and garnered Rs 6.08 crore. Across Maharashtra, one lakh citizens have purchased special numbers from RTOs for Rs 77 crore.
That's just one state. Delhi-NCR should be at least double that, if not more.

Well.. Looks like 16 lakhs was not enough money for the fancy number.

Honda Activa owner pays Rs 8 lakhs for VIP number in Chandigarh

Mr. Kanwaljit Walia's father, who was the President of Taxi Union, Punjab had a love for numbers. It all started when the local RTO introduced a new series for registering tourist vehicles. Being President of the Taxi Union in Punjab, Mr Walia’s father was given allotted two VIP numbers – PNZ 1 and CHZ 1.

VIP Car numbers-rs8lakhsforhondaactiva.jpg

The auction which was conducted by RTO officials over the weekend, saw the participation of many rich people from Chandigarh, a city where citizens are known for their fancy cars and fancy number plates. The bidding was for any 4 digit numbers between ‘0001’ to ‘9999’ in the CH01BC series.

Mr Walia’s bid of Rs 8.1 lakh was the highest during the entire auction. Everyone was surprised when they got to know that the VIP number bought by Mr Walia is for his new Honda Activa, and not the new Triumph Thunderbird LT, which he had recently bought for his son.

Instead, for the Triumph he got the number ‘0011’ in the same CH01BC series, for a sum of Rs 2.02 lakhs. The total collection over bidding of VIP numbers stood at 77.71 lakh, far less than what was collected during the bidding of CH01AX series (Rs 98.7 lakhs).

Wow. Just imagining how much will he sell his activa after few years

I too love numbers and the last I paid for a number was Rs.1500 7 years back for my Thunderbird.

Both my cars have awesome numbers with many zeros but the beauty is I bought them preworshipped and at prices lesser or equal to the market price. Thanks to the previous owners who paid the price.

Is anywhere aware of the process being followed at Gurugram RTO. If say one needs a number between 0001-0100 (HR26) is it required for the person to visit CHandigarh RTO?

Can anyone suggest any link or any credible source

From this month, fancy number plates for two-wheelers in Delhi.

Quote:
Bike enthusiasts in Delhi will be able to get fancy registration for their two-wheelers starting this month. The draft policy for the proposal of auctioning the special registration numbers has been notified and it is likely to be cleared in the next fortnight, government officials privy to the development said.

The Delhi government had last year moved the proposal to make fancy and VIP number plates available for two-wheeler riders. On December 11, 2017, it was put before the public for comments and when no objections were raised, it was sent to the L-G for clearance.

The government officials said that next week the final draft will be sent for approval before the cabinet and a final go-ahead will be sought by Lieutenant Governor Anil Baijal.
Quote:
Once the policy gets the final nod, the minimum price for two-wheelers for the golden number 0001 will be Rs 50,000, while bidding for numbers from 0002 to 0009 will begin from Rs 30,000.

Gauging the demand for numbers like 0786, 1111, 9999, 7777 and 1000, the transport department has set a base price of Rs 20,000 for them. Another category of numbers like 0100, 2222, 8888, 6666 and so on will be sold for Rs 15,000.

The numbers will also be issued to two-wheeler owners on first-come-first-served basis on their online portal at the showrooms itself.

Shouldn't this be written as 0001? I remember reading that even though the first digits may be zero, a vehicle number should always be displayed in four digits, without skipping any digit.
