The liking and the massive popularity of fancy numbers for vehicles is beyond just a registration number. Many vehicle owners prefer a particular number as they believe it would bring prosperity to them for instance, few want a registration number which when added sums up to their lucky number, few prefer going by the numerology, birth date, etc. It is amusing that the vehicle owners are ready to pay any amount for a fancy number that they desire. Auctions online and offline are held for bidding of the fancy numbers.
Fancy number auctioning was pulled off in Delhi for a while and vehicle owners especially two wheelers did not have an option to choose the number like earlier. Once the Delhi government introduced the odd/even system, it became all the more difficult to choose the registration number. Every vehicle owner was given a registration number that was picked by an automated system which could be either odd or even or VIP. But recently, the Delhi government once again reconsidered this option and fancy numbers or VIP numbers are up for grabs through online process.
Delhi is one amongst the top cities which is highly populated with people and vehicles. The total number of vehicles in Delhi is 1,00,93,470 of which 64,40,858 are two wheelers. two wheeler is the most convenient way to travel in Delhi and one can see huge number of bikes and scooters piling on roads and even highways. So if you too fancy getting a unique number for your bike then here is all you have to know.
