It is a known fact that some people spend big bucks on vehicle license plates those have fewer characters. In a recent event in Dubai, a man brought a single-digit number for over Rs 70 crore at the Dubai auction.

Going into reports, Dubai’s inaugural ‘Most Noble Numbers’ charity auction had offered bids on special vehicle number plates and exclusive mobile phone numbers. This auction had set a record for the third-most-expensive plate number sold in the world. ‘AA8’ earned Dh35 million (over Rs 70 crore) at the Dubai auction, following the Dh38 million (over Rs 79 crore) price of the AA9 plate number last year.

After intense bidding, the auction got Dh53 million to support the ‘1 Billion Meals’ campaign, which will give food to weak communities in over 50 countries. The auction was organised by Emirates Auction and Roads and Transport Authority in Dubai (RTA).

It is worth mentioning that a Honda Activa owner in Chandigarh had paid more than Rs 15 lakh to book himself a super VIP ‘0001’ number plate.
