Recently, Haryana Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar announced that the government will put ‘0001’ number plates on auction for common people to generate extra revenue for the state.
Currently, there are 179 state government vehicles using the 0001 number plate, four of which are owned by CM Khattar himself. The CM recently decided to give up 0001 numbers and generate added revenue from the e-auction.
0001 number plates are the most favoured and often auctioned at exorbitant prices.
Tamil Nadu based man purchased a Bajaj Dominar at Rs 2.67 lakhs with Rs 1 coins
Recently, a man from Tamil Nadu purchased a Bajaj Dominar at Rs 2.67 lakhs with Rs 1 coins. It took ten hours for the dealers to count. The coins were brought to the showroom on March 26 by Boobathi and his friends in a minivan packed with gunny bags. Boopathi is a BCA graduate who works as a computer operator.
Boobathi said in an interview, “I decided to save money I earned from my YouTube channel. When I inquired about the on-road cost of the bike, I got to know that it was priced at Rs 2.6 lakh, and I had the amount this time.”
When Boobathi approached the Bajaj showroom, the staff was a bit reluctant to accept the payment in one-rupee coins, because he had been converting his savings into small coins for the past three years. Boobathi, his four friends and five staff of the showroom counted the coins and took 10 hrs to count the full amount.
