The owner of a Chandigarh-based Honda Activa has spent over Rs 15 lakh to get himself a Super VIP ‘0001’ number plate. The audacious shopper has been identified as Brij Mohan, 42. He got this fancy number recently in an auction organized by Chandigarh Registration and Licensing Authority.
As per reports on the internet, the Chandigarh Registration and Licensing Authority put up 378 fancy registration numbers in the auction and earned Rs 1.5 crore. ‘CH01-CJ-0001’ was put up for auction at a base price of Rs 500,000 and was sold for Rs 15.44 lakh.
Brij Mohan has bought this number plate to reserve it for his future vehicle, which he plans to buy during Diwali 2022.
Recently, Haryana Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar announced that the government would put ‘0001’ number plate on auction for common people to generate additional revenue for the state.
At present, there are 179 state government vehicles using the 0001 number plate, out of which four are owned by CM Khattar himself. The CM recently decided to drop the number 0001 and generate additional revenue from e-auctions.
0001 number plates are the most preferred and are often auctioned off at exorbitant prices.
