    GUWAHATI: Bought your favourite vehicle and want to have a ‘fancy’ number for it? In Meghalaya, from now onwards having a fancy number for your vehicle would be dearer as the Meghalaya Cabinet has decided to increase booking rates of fancy numbers.

Through this decision, the collection of revenue is anticipated to increase no less than Rs 7 Crore annually.”

    Similarly, for fancy number 0003, the Cabinet has decided to increase the rate from Rs 30,000 to Rs 50,000; for number 0007 the rate will now be Rs 70,000.

    Numbers 0009 will cost Rs 50,000 (earlier Rs 30,000); 0786 at 70,000 from Rs 20,000; and Rs 50,000 for 1111, which cost Rs 15,000 earlier.
