Motorcycle enthusiasts in India are not only diligent while buying a perfect motorcycle but are also keen on making their vehicles stand out from the crowd. The demand for fancy registration numbers in Madhya Pradesh and other states in India has gone significantly up and two-wheeler owners do not mind spending extra cash to get their favourite number displayed on their bikes. A special registration number not only gives a unique identity to the vehicle but also speaks volumes about the persona of the rider. Vehicle numbers like 786 (Islamic number), 007 (James Bond), 1111, 9999, and others have a great demand and thus there is immense competition among people to get these numbers.
Getting a special number for your bike is not as easy as it used to be few years back. This is because a lot of other people may be eyeing for the same number that you might be seeking. To bring transparency in the way special registration numbers in Madhya Pradesh are allotted, an online system has been adopted to assign vehicle numbers on a first-come-first serve basis and also by way of auction if there is more than one applicant for a particular vehicle registration number.
What Does A Vehicle Number Plate Say
Just like two wheeler insurance and PUC certificate, the Registration Certificate of the vehicle must be carried by the vehicle owner at all times. A vehicle registration plate gives out significant details about a vehicle. The first two letters in a registration mark denote the state in which the vehicle is registered. For instance, vehicles registered in Madhya Pradesh have MP written on their number plates. The next two-digit number in the number plate represents the code of the RTO where a vehicle is registered. The next part of a vehicle number plate is a four-digit registration number of the vehicle. A registration mark is assigned from the range of 0001 to 9999. After all the numbers from the range are assigned, two more letters are placed before the registration number and the same range continues.
Process To Apply For A Fancy Vehicle Number In Madhya Pradesh
Special registration marks cannot be obtained through the regular vehicle registration numbers as these numbers are blocked in the system and can be only obtained through the e-Auction System introduced by Madhya Pradesh Transport Department. On the right hand side of the website, the list of available registration numbers can be checked out by clicking on the RTO in whose jurisdiction you are looking to register your vehicle.
E-Auction System For Reservation of Special Registration Number In MP
The Government of Madhya Pradesh introduced an e-Auction System, a platform to help vehicle owners who seek special registration numbers. The online platform has been introduced with the aim of making the process of allocation of special numbers more transparent and streamlined. For simpler reference, special numbers are termed as Fancy/Vanity/Premium numbers and are categorised based on different patterns based on the sequence, representation, and repetition of the number.
The e-Auction website pools all the fancy vehicle numbers and makes them available for auction so that every individual has an equal chance of obtaining the registration mark of their choice. The interested applicants can sign-up for the auction by entering details such as name, email id, mobile number, and address. The whole process involves very little human interference and the special number is assigned to the person making the highest bid for the same.
