The District administration of Kangra, Himachal Pradesh, had invited online bids to auction a fancy number HP 90-0009. The bids were closed on June 26 and the highest bidder was Una, Himachal-based firm Rahul Pam Private Limited .

This firm made the highest bid of Rs 18,22,500 for the fancy number.

Sources said there were other bidders too who had offered between Rs 10 to 15 lacs for this number. However, the officials refused to divulge the details of the persons saying the bids were made online and were confidential.

SDM Kangra Murali Lal said the fancy number will be allotted to the said firm if the money is deposited within three days.

“We have given three days’ time to the firm to deposit the bid money and Monday has been set as the deadline. The fancy number will be allotted to the bidder if he deposits the money. However,this number can be allotted to the person who made the second-highest bid in case he fails to deposit the bid price,” Murari Lal said.
