The word for “eight” sounds similar to the word which means “prosper” or “wealth”.

RM150,000 for registration number TAX 1

KUALA TERENGGANU: A local bidder forked out more than RM150,000 for the registration number TAX 1 last November.

Terengganu Road Transport Department (JPJ) director Abdul Rahman Emang Anyie said yesterday the bidder was a businessman here but declined to divulge any more details about him.

Tender documents for the “TAX 1 to TAX 999” registration number ended on Nov 3, and the department received an overwhelming response for all the 1,000 numbers that were tendered.

However, the registration number “TAN 1” still holds the record for the highest bid after a businessman from Johor Baru paid RM200,000 to own the number.

On another matter, Abdul Rahman said his men had successfully detected traffic violators by posing as road users and passengers of public transportation services since February.

He said the 506 offences were recorded, while 257 cases of motorists beating the traffic lights were caught on the spot.

Abdul Rahman said the officers had snapped pictures of the traffic offenders, and summonses would be sent to them.

He said motorcyclists and pillion riders also formed the majority of offenders. Some 150 were captured on film for not wearing crash helmets.

“We will continue with the undercover operation as it has proven effective,” he added.

  4. M’sia set to be Asian and African hub for Peugeot’s right-hand drive cars

    IPOH: Malaysia is set to be a hub to produce Peugeot’s right-hand drive cars for Asian and African markets by the end of next year.

    Nasim Sdn Bhd’s chief executive officer SM Nasaruddin SM Nasimuddin said the French carmaker had agreed to join hands with Nasim to produce the sedan car in the C-segment category “under the codename T73.”

    Nasaruddin said the car would be assembled at its plant in Gurun, Kedah.

    We are working from scratch so we are targeting the launch of the car by end of next year,” he said after the signing of memorandum of understanding (MoU) between Nasim and Automobiles Peugeot yesterday.

    On the model to be produced, Nasaruddin said it would either be a two litre or 1.6 turbo engine.

    To a question, Peugeot’s vice-president Jean-Philippe Imparato Imparato said 40% of the cars produced would be for the export market while the remainder for the domestic market.

    “That will be our target for the first year when the car is produced,” he said, stressing on Malaysia being an important market for Peugeot.

    In conjunction with the signing of the MoU, there was also the opening of a new Peugeot Blue Box as part of Nasim’s plans to bring the Peugeot brand to more customers in the country.

    In his speech, Nasarudin said the MoU not only marks Automobiles Peugeot’s faith in the group as their Asean production hub partner, it was also evidence of the latter’s confidence in its manufacturing quality, manpower, strong domestic sales and local vendor base.

    For the half of this year, Nasim has sold 1,200 Peugeot vehicles nationwide and received 400 bookings for the new sports utility vehicle, Peugeot 3008.


  5. RM1m for 1 Malaysia number plates

    Gagasan 1 Malaysia (1 Malaysia concept) number plates are being offered to help raise money for the seven continents exploration club (KE7B), with crown jewel — G1M1 — going for at least RM1 million

    “Bidding is still open,” said the club president Muhammad Muqharabbin Mokhtaruddin.

    Bidding for the G1M1 plate is scheduled to end this Friday, but will be extended if the club fails to find a buyer by then.

    “We will reopen the offer after September 25,” he told The Malaysian Insider.

    KE7B explained that the winner of the bid would also automatically become the inter-continental expedition’s title sponsor.

    “The highest bidder would be given the status main expedition sponsor,” said Muhammad Muqharabbin.

    So far there has been no offer for G1M1, according to Muhammad Muqharabbin, but the club has been getting encouraging response for other numbers under the G1M series.

    “Since we took over, sales have been encouraging. We are getting response from every race, Malays, Indians and Chinese and we still have 1,200 numbers,” he said adding that the club expects to raise about RM3 million from the sales.

    The club offering registration numbers ranging from G1M1 to G1M2000.

    As of Monday, Muhammad Muqharabbin said they have sold 800 numbers worth RM1 million.

    “For the past three days, we have received 800 calls after we took over the sales late last month,” he said.

    Bidding was opened last June after the launch by Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak.

    Those interested may call 012-6475472 (Hassan), 012-2585159 (Khairil Hafidz) or visit the website at platg1m.blogspot.com.

    Bidding for the numbers G1M2 to G1M10 ranges from RM75,000 to RM250,000, while G1M numbers can be purchased from between RM1,500 and RM25,000.

    “Those who buy the numbers can register by the end of the year, and they can be used in perpetuity,” said Muqharabbin.

    Muhammad Muqharabbin said part of the proceeds from the sales would also be channelled to National Athletes Welfare Foundation, Malaysian Children’s Hope Foundation and the Poverty Eradication Foundation.

    The rest of the money, he said, would be used to finance the club’s expedition.

    Responding to queries, Road Transport Department director-general Datuk Solah Mat Hassan said the independent auction of the registration number by KE7B was according to procedure.

    “There were already vehicles registered under the number, they were sold by a third party (KE7B) but we only manage registration matters like how we handle registration of vehicles using special plates,” he said.


  6. JPJ: ‘MCA’ number plates not open for public tender

    KUALA LUMPUR: Vehicle registration numbers bearing the letters “MCA” will not be opened for public tender until the Transport Ministry issues a new directive rescinding the original order.

    Road Transport Department (JPJ) director-general Datuk Solah Mat Hassan said the department had received an official letter dated Feb 17 from the senior private secretary of former Transport Minister Datuk Seri Ong Tee Keat, which instructed that vehicle registration plates from “MCA 1” to “MCA 9999” be reserved for MCA members.

    “The instruction still stands as there was no new instruction otherwise from Datuk Seri Ong throughout his tenure as Transport Minister,” he said in a statement yesterday.

    Solah also said the department needed a new directive from the current Transport Minister Datuk Seri Kong Cho Ha to officially annul the original instruction.
