A two-day open auction of registration numbers of the "CH-01-AZ" series will start at the registering and licensing authority (RLA) office in Sector 17 from Saturday.

Officials said while the auction of vehicle number from 0001 to 0100 of the new series will be held on Saturday, the auction of other vanity numbers from 0101 will be held on Sunday.

As per the public notice uploaded by the RLA on its website, applicants who desire to obtain payment numbers are requested to attend the open auction before 9.30am. Those participating in the auction must bring a copy of sale letter (form number 21) along with residence proof. The reserve price will be accepted in cash only. The list prescribing the reserve price against special numbers or any other number is available at the RLA office.

RLA earned a total of `75.88 lakh from the open auctioning of previous CH-01-AY series, where it earned record `98 lakh from open auction of CH-01-AX, held in April. It was the highest revenue earned by the RLA, so far, from the auctioning of any series.

An official said the authorities were expecting to fetch maximum revenue from the auction of new series.

Due to open auctioning, the RLA office in Sector 17 will remain closed on Saturday. No official work except auctioning will take place on that day.
