Is the rule in AP different ? Someone mentioned you can book a particular number and wait. For how long ? What is the official rule in AP?

cheers!
Hey srini, AFAIK the T/R is valid for a month and you have to get your car registered in that month.

The penalty for driving the car more than a month/1000km, is Rs.1000/- my cousin has paid this 3 times in the last 4 months, waiting for a particular no. for his Fabia!

These are the numbers we have used on our cars:
HR XX 0046
HR XX C 0046
HR XX D 0082
HR XX 4242
HR XX E 2200

All these are before the "VIP" numbers were paid.
We knew someone who knew someone in RTO. All the above said numbers we got were without spending a penny.

Now, we just transfer the numbers to new cars, if we sell any vehicle.

Dear friends
don't call theses numbers VIP. Actually these are chamcha's numbers mostly given to persons links in political parties so that those chamchas can say that they are the real chamcha.

I recently had my fiat left hand drive transferred from Kottayam to Mumbai and gave strict instruction to my RTOwallah to get whatever number comes, as I refuse to give a single paisa for such results. I got some number which is good enough for me. This leads me to think - by the time this display of moneypower ends, will there still be some normal numbers leftover for normal people to be able to get their cars registered ? think about it.

Best regards,

Behram Dhabhar

In some cities you cannot transfer the numbers to your other vehicles. I am not sure if its applicable to Mumbai.

Around 15 days ago, I read in the papers that Central Govt. has instructed that there will be no number transfers in Chandigarh.

The ruling has been passed by Center, some states have already put it in action some are in process.

I live in Panchkula which is satellite city to Chandigarh and it falls under Haryana.
In Haryana, you can still transfer the numbers, both the cars should be registered to the same person for the transfer process.

I haven't heard of this happening in Bombay ever. It would be a good practice but this would set the VIP number allotment prices through the roof even more.

There is a lot of back stage activity even when there is an auction. My friend never paid more than 55K for a number. And all their cars have the following number

Merc- KL7 AP 1
Merc- KL7 AE 1
Civic- KL7 BC 1
Santro KL7 AR 1
Swift KL 7 AX 1

I should say your friend is either very influential or damn lucky to get 1 for 55k
In Mumbai, the RTO recently revised the rates for VIP numbers
and the most expensive is 1 @ 100k
and once the car series number 1 is gone, they will give you 1 from the 2 wheeler series @ thrice the rate i.e. 300k + big time chai paani

I got my Santro in 2002 and paid 10k officially + 2 k chai paani for MH-02 - XX- 7777
And now when i was buying my innova in april, i was in a big shock as far as the values for these VIP nos go.
Rates have been hiked to 75k for XXXX all digit same number, and 50k for 3 similar digits. And even then there is a big big demand for these numbers.
Needless to say, the Chai Pani rates have been enhanced BIG time

In April, when i went to buy the Innova, i did not get any 4 similar digit like 7777 or 3 digit similar like 777 available. So wanted to settle for jumping numbers like 5050. Even @ 7.5 k those numbers were not available. SO for me the option was to take it from the 2 wheeler series @ thrice the amount. But the biggest boomer was, the Dealer's RTO guys wanted 15 k Chai Pani ( they claim they have to pay so much ).

Finally, 2 visits to thr RTO office and i got the 5050 from 2 wheeler series @ 22.5k + chai pani ( much lower than the dealer's price ).

I would say that going directly to the RTO was an eye opener. None of the guys there wana talk to the car owners directly and send you to an agent. On continous pestering however, you can expect the work to be done @ 1/3rd the agent's fees. SO now can i can splurge that saved amount on ICE for my innova
