VIP Number Plates - How to get high quality car number plates

Your car's license plate is proof of ownership and a convenient way to identify your vehicle. The RTO issues license plates. They often feature letters and numbers, which can be selected at random or assigned to you by the RTO.

If you're excited about having a unique license plate on your car, you're in the right place. This guide will give you all the details you need to know about getting a fancy number plate, also known as a VIP number plate.

What are fancy number plates?

Before we talk about the fancy numbers for cars, let’s go over them. There is nothing more exciting than getting noticed and enjoying some bragging rights with a VIP number plate. This is why affluent people spend large sums of money on carfancy number plates. Just a heads-up, these numbers can be anything like ‘9999’ or ‘0001’. The latter option will cost you more than the former. The government auctions off these attractive number plates, which results in a higher price than the normal registration fee. Common high-value number plates include 0001, 0100, 1111, 4444, 0786 etc.

How can one get these fancy number plates for cars?

If you want a special number plate for your car, here are the steps you need to follow:

  • You can register on the Ministry of Road Transport and Highway (MoRTH) website as a public user by completing a short sign-up form.

  • Select your own personalised VIP number plate.

  • Please pay the registration fee and deposit for the VIP number to make a booking.

  • After you deposit the fees, you will have to bid for the numbers you want.

  • You will be allotted a number based on the results of the auction. You must immediately deposit the balance amount after you win the auction.

  • Make sure that you print your allocation letter after making all your payments after you win the bid.

  • If you don’t get the number you requested, you can apply for a refund.

  • Visit the websitehttps://vahan.parivahan.gov.in/fancy/ to get the details of a fancy number from the local RTO and then apply for it.

Some additional details on car fancy number plates

Once you understand how to get a customs number plate, be sure to know the additional requirements for your car.

  • Even cars bearing VIP plates must have special-security registration plates (HSRP).

  • These HSRPs are made of aluminum. The plates are hot-stamped with chromium and have a hologram and a ten-digit Personal Identification Number (PIN).

  • Even if you have a VIP number plate, your car's license plate should follow the guidelines set by the Central Motor Vehicles Act of 1989.

VIP number plate Price

Please note that different states have different fees for registering number plates with particular numbers. For example, a plate containing the number 1 is slightly more expensive than the fee for a plate containing the number 2. In addition to these fees, you may need to pay advance payment to book your desired plate. Please refer to the table below for details of these advance payments:

Type

Examples

Amount for booking (in lakhs)

Super elite

0001

5

Single digits

  000003, 0005, 0009, etc.

3

Semi-fancy

0100, 0666, 4444, 8000, etc.

1

Others

0786, numbers from 0010 to 0099, and many others

2

When you put your money down for a special fancy number plate, it may not be the final amount that you pay for the plate. If there’s more than one bidder, you might have to top the other bids to get the number you want. If you lose in the bidding process, your refundable deposit will be returned to you.

HSRP is mandatory for VIP Numbers.

If you're going to get fancy number plates, read this section carefully. As per the new rules, every car must have an HSRP number. The Central Motor Vehicles Rules, 1989 clearly stated that starting in April 2019, all new vehicles mandatorily have HSRPs to prevent any kind of inconvenience to buyers. And therefore, it becomes necessary for the fancy number plates also to have an HSRP number.

The VVIP fancy number plates

Although you can purchase a custom license plate through auction, most states reserve certain types of plates for VVIPs. These plates are customized and might not have to follow the regular registration rules. Some examples of these special plates include the following.

Vehicles belonging to

  • the President of India

  • Governors

  • Army dignitaries

  • Diplomats

  • State governments.

We hope that this information on fancy license plates at Autobest will help you choose a number for your car that stands out.
