Fees for Fancy Car/Bike Number Plates

The registration fee for a fancy number plate can differ from one state to another. For example, the registration fee is Rs.1000 in Delhi. You need to check what this fee is in your residential state.

Apart from this registration fee, car owners would also need to bear an advance payment to book a particular plate.

This advance payment depends on the type of number you want to book. These special numbers are categorised into four different sections, with an advance payment slab for each.


Example of Numbers

Booking Amount

Super Elite


Rs. 5 lakh

Single Digit

0003, 0005, 0009 and so on

Rs. 3 lakh

Semi-Fancy Numbers

0100, 0666, 4444, 8000, etc.

Rs. 1 lakh


0786, numbers from 0010 to 0099, and many others

Rs.2 lakh

Keep in mind that this advance you pay is not necessarily the final payment amount. After advance booking, a bidding war ensues between you and other parties interested in acquiring the same plate as you.

Your final amount depends on what you end up bidding. If you lose out to another party, your advance payment would be reimbursed.
