The state government previously informed owners of old vehicles in Gujarat that they will be able to keep their old vehicle numbers after they are scrapped. After calls for similar provisions to be implemented in Delhi, Uttar Pradesh, and West Bengal, the decision was made.
“After Delhi, Uttar Pradesh, and West Bengal, Gujarat has also decided to implement vehicle number retention policy, considering the demands of applicants,” state Transport Minister Purnesh Modi said in announcing the decision. As a result of this policy, vehicle owners will be able to keep their vehicle number twice.”
A new number will be assigned to the old vehicle that has been transferred of ownership, while the retained number will be assigned to the newly purchased vehicle. If the vehicle is scrapped, the retained number will be assigned to the newly purchased vehicle, and a new number will be assigned to the scrapped vehicle.
It is also required that the vehicle whose number is to be kept and the vehicle on which the number is to be kept be owned by the same person.
For the number to be kept, the vehicle owner must own it for at least one year. Within 15 days, the process of allocating the retained number to the new vehicle should be completed.
The Gujarat government has decided that the fees will be similar to those established for the state’s choice numbers. For two-wheelers, the golden number will cost Rs 8,000, the silver number Rs 3,500, and the other numbers will cost Rs 2,000.
Fees for other vehicles will be Rs 40,000 for golden number, Rs 15,000 for silver, and Rs 8000 for any other number.
