Chandigarh: Registering and Licensing Authority earns Rs 28 lakh from 99 vehicle numbers

The Registering and Licensing Authority (RLA) of the UT administration has earned over Rs 28 lakh by auctioning 99 left-out vehicle registration numbers of previous series, a record of sorts if the amount is considered.

The RLA had advertised around 250 numbers. People had first registered themselves and then participated in the auction. As the left-out fancy numbers were in good quantity, the RLA had put all of them in a single auction to attract maximum bidders.

Earlier, the authority had given a week to bidders to register themselves. Three days of the last week were kept for the auction. It was an e-auction like previous ones.

The owner of the vehicle had to register on national transport website: https://vahan.parivahan.gov.in/fancy and the link of the same was available on the administration’s transport department website: ww.chadtransport.gov.in. The owner of a vehicle purchased at Chandigarh address was only allowed to participate in e-auction.

The auction of fancy registration numbers of vehicles is one of the key mediums to generate revenue for the administration. The RLA focuses on securing a good amount by advertising the auction to ensure maximum participation. Last year due to the coronavirus pandemic, the RLA failed to fetch a good amount. The RLA was recently opened for limited services.
