Issues in Most Expensive Car Registration in Punjab
At the time of registration of Lamborghini, the provincial department excused itself from registering the sports car because Rs10-crore was the registration deadline. “The department couldn’t register any car above this price line,” the officials told media.
However, the department altered its rules, upgraded its software and then registered the car.
The Lamborghini owner told media that he remained unbale to get the vehicle registered. “I have been coming to excise office for ten days, but I am surprised there is no law in Punjab to register such cars,” he told media.
Before Lamborghini, the most expensive car registered in Punjab was of Mercedes GT Series. The price of that car was around Rs10-crore. The excise department got Rs3.5million as a registration fee of that vehicle.
This extremely high price registration shows the people’s love for cars and how much they are ready to pay for these vehicles.
