People, nowadays, in addition to putting in the time and effort to purchase a vehicle that exactly meets their needs also go the extra mile to customise their vehicles by booking personalised registration numbers. Many vehicle owners who have customised registration numbers, which are also called VIP registration numbers/fancy numbers/choice numbers, regard it as a statement of their individuality. To book a VIP registration number, interested individuals are usually required to participate in an auction and bid for a VIP registration number of their choice.
The number plate that is attached to a vehicle has a fixed format. However, the alpha-numeric codes that make up the number plate change based on certain details such as the state in which the vehicle is registered, the respective district code, etc. All vehicle number plates start with two alphabets that represent the code of the state. Thus, if your two-wheeler is registered in Chhattisgarh, your vehicle’s number plate will begin with a “CG”.
The next two letters represent the specific district in which the vehicle was registered. The next part of the number plate is the registration number. This is the number that can be personalised by the vehicle owner. The fourth element is a holographic code, which is found in High Security Registration Plates.
Since there is a high demand for VIP registration numbers in the state of Chhattisgarh, the Chhattisgarh Transport Department has introduced an e-Auction System on its official website. Individuals who are interested in booking a VIP registration number will need to participate in this auction. After the auction, the highest bidder of each VIP registration number will be offered the particular registration number. The process to participate in this auction is as follows:
All private and transport vehicles are required to have a valid registration number, also known as a registration mark, that is issued by the respective Regional Transport Office (RTO). The registration number should match the number that is displayed on the vehicle's number plate. In addition to it being mandatory as per the Motor Vehicles Act, 1988, the registration number also plays an important role in the identification of a vehicle.
Getting your vehicle registered and having valid registration number for your vehicle is compulsory according to the Motor Vehicles Act. The Act also requires vehicle owners to purchase two-wheeler insurance policies (either a third-party liability-only insurance cover or a comprehensive two-wheeler insurance cover) to ensure their safety and the safety of others while using their vehicles in public. Thus, as a responsible vehicle owner, you should make sure that you are compliant with the law by registering your vehicle and purchasing a two-wheeler insurance cover for the vehicle.
