Default Personal or Special Registration Numbers? (eg. HYH 4)

Here in Gurgaon, I have seen some cars having registration numbers like "HYH 4" and HYC 8 etc. Three alphabets with a single digit number.

What are these registration numbers and how one can get that?

PS: These are not TEMP numbers, coz cars were looking a bit older.

These are old registeration numbers which were allotted in the system prevailing earlier than the current one. However, they are not correctly written as the plate should actually read HRH 0004. Due to the fact that nowadays there is a crazy rush amongst the rich to get these "VVIP" numbers on their expensive cars people have the plates ss they like & pay crazy amounts to buy these numbers from owners of old cars & transfer them to their own new cars.

these numbers are correctly written

as some 15 years ago the number system followed in haryana never included 000 in a number like HYH 0004

it was written as HYH 4 only

and right now these numbers can be transferred to a new car if the owner is same and the old car is crushed.

+1 I personally own PJO 3 plate and no need to include 000 in front. It is as it is. Quite amazing isn't it?
