If anyone doubted how rich or how “number-crazy” Punjabis are, especially after a guy paid Rs.15 lakh for a mobile number, here is someone who has gone one-up on him.Only this time, it is not mobile numbers that are in the thick of bidding activity, but vehicle registration numbers.
Manjinder Singh, a farmer from Ropar paid Rs.2.68 lakh for the number: PB-11-AK-47. Among other wanted numbers were 0001, 0002 and 0005, fetching Rs.70,000, Rs.80,000, and Rs.55,000 respectively.
What a kick these guys must be getting, splashing all that moolah on registration numbers !!! :p
