A Chandigarh resident has spent more than 15 lakh to get himself a unique number plate for his mere 71,000 Honda Activa scooter, Hindustan Times reported. Brij Mohan, a 42-year-old advertising professional, got himself the fancy number plate in a recent auction held by the Chandigarh Registering and Licensing Authority. He paid a whopping 15.44 lakh, to be precise, to get the vehicle number that reads - CH01-CJ-0001.

However, the expensive vehicle number plate won't sit on his Activa forever. Mohan revealed that he plans to use it for his future car, though initially it will be seen on his scooter. "I will use the number for my Activa, which I bought recently. But eventually, I will use for car," he said.

Out of all the numbers sold, Mohan's CH01-CJ-0001 fetched the highest amount against a reserve price of 50,000 while the second most expensive auction was that CH-01-CJ-002, that fetched an amount of 5.4 lakh. The third-highest fetching number - CH-01-CJ-007 - went under the hammer for 4.4 lakh while CH-01- CJ-003 was sold for 4.2 lakh. The reserve price for these numbers was 30,000.
