A two-day open auction of registration numbers of the "CH-01-AY"series will start at the registering and licensing authority (RLA) office in Sector 17 from Saturday. Officials said the auction of vehicle number from 0001 to 0100 of the new series will begin after 9.30am on June 28. On June 29, auction for vehicle number 0101 onwards will be held.
An official said, "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 the office."
RLA authorities earned more than `98 lakh from open auction of vehicle registration numbers for the series CH-01-AX, held in April. It was the highest revenue earned by the RLA so far from the auctioning of any series.
The number CH-01-AX-0001 fetched the highest amount, `7 lakh from Sector-33 businessman Harinder Singh.
An RLA official said the department hoped to set new benchmark with open auction of the new AY series.
Officials also informed that 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.
