I know that writing numbers on any vechicle in english make sense but at the same time, I also feel that isn't it funny that our national language is Hindi and its against the traffic rule to have a number plate written in hindi.

and why not allow i to be written in all other 14 languages too?

English is more legible than other languages and its kind of ISO certified

Its not the care ROC. Apprantly if you choose any number, however random, you need to pay a premium. I was asked 7.5k for the No. 7569
Its okay if they ask for 7.5k but on what basis the imbeciles asked for 35k, I have no clue at all

In Chikmagalur ( KA -18) one has to shell out 25K to RTO for a selected number for a 4 wheeler.
In Sakleshpur ( KA - 46) it's around 10 - 15K
Bangalore I have not much idea probably it's around 25K.

How about a Old Bajaj Scooter with numbers MEN 420 ? In BLR

Off Topic:

How close were you in catching your neighboring number in vehicles ?

For eg. If your number is KA 20 M 1234 for Indica White, Did you ever catch a person whose vehicle number is close to 1200 series ? And whats the probability if its a Indica ? Whats the probability its White !

This incident happened to me last week in Marathalli.

Mine is KA 53 79** series, Swift Silver. Not only I saw a Silver Siwft with KA 53 79** series, he was just 4 digits away from my number. Wanted to draw his attention by honking, but couldn't. But the feeling was good to know that your neighbor is also a owner of Silver Swift.

My friend had 155 number in K series which reads as KISS. But we need to be careful if we select this number as somebody can kiss us from behind.

I thought of going for 15 number in AX series which can be spelt as AXIS but settled for another number.

The phrase "cost is no object" was redefined last week when an aftermarket tuner dropped close to a cool million on a license plate. Yes, a license plate. The "F1" plate was first registered in the UK 104 years ago, when it was more likely a two-digit coincidence than a vanity plate, and until recently was used on a Volvo S80 owned by the chairman of the Essex County Council. F1 chief Bernie Ecclestone and former F1 driver Eddie Irvine had tried to snatch it up in 2005 at Goodwood, but failed to meet the reserve.
Last week at auction, Afzal Kahn, head of the Kahn Design and Project Kahn aftermarket tuning house, placed the winning bid of £375k, which comes to more than £440k with tax (the equivalent of about $873,000). The price beat the previous record of £331k paid at a Bonhams auction in 2006 for the "M1" plate, but may yet be beat when the UK's oldest registration plate "A1" goes under the hammer in the near future. Kahn will reportedly (and fittingly) put the F1 plate on his custom Mercedes SLR McLaren. How does he feel about blowing that much cash on a license plate? "It's every man's dream to have his perfect car with a number plate like this." Uh, we'll keep dreaming, thanks.

Being a dog lover I was really happy to see a scooter & wish I had the same.
