    Your vehicle can speak volumes about your personality.

VIP registration numbers like 9999, 8055, 1111, etc., make a two-wheeler look truly unique and help the vehicle owner make a statement. However, since VIP registration numbers are in high demand, RTOs usually conduct auctions for these numbers. Thus, individuals who are interested in getting VIP registration numbers for their vehicles can participate in these auctions and bid for registration numbers of their choice.

    Elements of a Number Plate

    There are four elements in a number plate. The first component or element is the code of the state in which one’s two-wheeler has been registered. The second element is the district code in which the vehicle is registered. The next part of the number plate is a registration number, which is unique to every vehicle. Lastly, if the number plate is a High Security Registration Plate, it will also have a tamper-proof holographic logo with the letters “IND” present under the logo.

    Procedure to Get a VIP Registration Number in Chandigarh

    The Transport Department of Chandigarh conducts an e-auction process for the sale of VIP registration numbers. Individuals who are interested in booking/reserving VIP registration numbers will have to participate in the online auction. The steps that you will need to follow to get a VIP registration number are as follows:

    • A vehicle owner will be permitted to participate in the e-auction only if the concerned individual has a residence in the city. The participant will need to submit an address proof to prove the same at the time of registering their two-wheeler.
    • Further, participants also need to have the sale letter and their Aadhaar card, in addition to the address proof, in order to participate in the auction.
    • The address that is mentioned in the sale letter and the address that is specified in one’s address proof has to be the same.
    • Vehicle owners, who wish to participate in the online auction, will need to register themselves in the Chandigarh Administration, Transport Department website or the National Transport website. Upon registering on the website, the concerned individual will receive a Unique Acknowledgement Number.
    • Post this, the owner of the vehicle will need to deposit the specified registration fees to participate in the online auction and will also have to pay the reserve amount for the particular VIP registration number in the office of the Registering and Licensing Authority, U.T., Chandigarh.
    • The non-refundable fee to participate in the e-auction is Rs.500. The same will have to be paid in cash. The reserve amount that is to be paid for a specific VIP registration number can be paid to the Registering and Licensing, U.T., Chandigarh, by demand draft (DD). The DD will have to have a validity of a minimum period of 3 months. If a particular individual wishes to bid for more than one VIP registration number, the reserve amount to be paid will be equal to the highest reserve price of all the VIP registration numbers that the individual wishes to bid for.
