The demand for distinctive numbers has not decreased even in the face of a significant increase in vehicle registration fees. When it comes to numbers that are attention-grabbing or based on their birth date sequence, people are willing to pay fees ranging from Rs 7,000 to Rs 4 lakh. Applicants must submit their request and pay the fee online at the Regional Transport Office (RTO) in order to obtain a choice number. The number is put up for auction if it is in great demand. Now that the entire procedure is being done online, candidates can easily secure the car numbers they want without ever having to leave their homes.
The majority of RTO operations are now conducted online, allowing users to conveniently complete tasks from the comfort of their homes, such as managing address changes, facilitating license renewals, and issuing learning licenses. As more and more people from larger cities were obtaining vehicle numbers from smaller towns, the government renewed their efforts to obtain a choice of vehicle numbers online.
Availability in showrooms
Customers will now get a vehicle number immediately in the showroom when they buy a new car. It is anticipated that a preferred vehicle number will be available on-site. The owner does not need to visit the Regional Transport Office or apply for their preferred number after purchasing the vehicle. In the upcoming year, car owners might be able to obtain their preferred numbers straight from the showroom.
After buying a new car, the government is thinking of launching an online service that would allow car owners to get their preferred vehicle numbers. Nevertheless, the Nagpur Regional Transport Offices have not yet received any orders or directives concerning the implementation of this service.
