The Registering and Licensing Authority (RLA) will hold an auction for the left-out registration numbers in the new series CH 01 AS,on April 9 .
100 numbers were left after the previous auction on March 24,for which they had received single applications. The applicants did not turn up. Thus,instead of giving away these numbers on first-come first-serve basis,the authorities decided to hold an auction for them.
There have been allegations that the process of allotting the numbers on first-come first-serve basis had not been fair and did not go down well with many applicants.
Meanwhile,response for the applications sought for these 100 numbers has not been overwhelming. Officials said response was rather lukewarm.
