In Russia, They Offered to Sell "Beautiful" Numbers for Several Million Rubles
The department sent to the government a draft resolution, amendments to the law "On state registration of vehicles" and to the Budget Code, allowing regions to sell "beautifu" numbers at auctions. Such a number cannot be obtained by chance; a citizen will be able to select it on the public services portal in order to then redeem the right to use it at auction.
The most expensive will be numbers with the same numbers and letters (for example, А111АА or В888ВВ). Their price will be from 600 thousand rubles. Also, tariffs will be set for motorcycle numbers: for a number with the same letters in combination with the numbers 0001, 0002, 0003, etc. (for example, 0004MM) you will have to pay at least 200 thousand rubles.
Trades will run for one month. Buying a car with a "beautifu" number, a citizen will also have to pay the auction price to the state. The proceeds from the sale of such numbers will be equally divided between the federal and regional budgets. The new rules should come into force on January 1, 2022.
