Default How long can u wait without a regn. no ?

Guys,

One observation about AP cars is that many of them ply on the roads without a permanent registration number / board. Even for more than 6 months at a time...

I was of the impression that cars can ply on temp regn for a week max after which they should be properly registered.

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!

I know someone who paid 1 lac for this no - UP-- AK 47

All these numbers cost a lot, I am sure 3333 will cost 5 - 10k at least. 1313 would be cheaper.

A few years back I got 4444 free on my Santro !!

hey Student,

I know an agent who can get these no.s done for u.

See, just paying the official fee is not enough for getting these no's.

1313 will cost u min. of 5k as official fees, and 3333 will cost u around 10k to 20k as official fees.

Other than that, what happens is multiple ppl opt for these nos. coz they are fancy! So then it goes into auction, and then prices like 1lk are also paid!

So to escape that, and sneak the no. past the auction, u need a good broker, who can manipulate things inside to allot the no. before even it is to come out in the market. its like...they give out only the next 1000 nos from the current running.


will try to find his no. and give u soon.

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

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.
