    Now Thieves will steal another same model corolla and put your cars number plate on it and then take it where ever they sell them

    Inform the police and get the duplicate number plates issued, and yes your cars value will be decreased
    RIP

    Immediately report this to the police. The original number plate can be used for terrorism purposes. And if its registered to your name, you could get into very serious trouble.
    So don't hesitate and report the theft right away for your own security..
    And as for the no. plate, you can easily get a new one by filing in a request and paying some amount. Don't know exactly about the procedure and the amount. But you must do the important thing first.......
    Fast cars are my only choice!!!

    This happens alot. One should use custom made plates and keep originals in the car so that they can be provided if asked by police/security.
    Almost everyone in Pakistan is doing corruption to the extent they can. Our leaders are doing at the level they can do. So why should we complain?

    report it to police make 2 copies of report and get both stamped by police station, submit 1 to Excise office and get letter & copy stamped by excise office. Also submit the same set to CPLC. stealing number plates from Toyotas & Hondas is on rise - as clearly stated by QWERTYPOIU with one plate original and forged registration book another car a stolen one must be ready for use as private taxi or some terror activity.

    submit an application along for issuance of duplicate number plate asap.

    there are many uses of a stolen number plate.
    use it to transport a stolen car to some other place.
    use it to use another car of the same model in some other province.
    use it for some terrorist activity.

    report it to police. excise will issue you new plates with DUPLICATE stamped on them which will decrease your car value.

    i have the computer plates for my car under my car's seat and other ordinary (fancy) number plates on display. If any cop insists to see the original plates, i can show it to them (which has never happened till now)

    also allow me to say that these sindh number plates are not at all special. they can be easily remade if you have the right contacts.

    cant they use custom made plates and now such plates are seen that can not be easily identifiable as original or copy. there may be some other reason behind it.

    okay i have lodged the FIR now i am thinking is there anyone who can get original number plate made, like its not so difficult as they have removed the embossing of the monogram and are simply printing it.. if i get duplicate made it will be mentioned in the records in the civic center and thus reduce value of the car..

    goto preedy police station at plaza the area is infested with plate makers they make with such fine prints which only a pro can identify as duplicate - BUT - BUT - BUT _
    what if the stolen plate - The person (Thief) reach excise office before you with an FIR for plates & book stolen from car and block the file ?

    You better submit the report to Excise office get a duplicate plate issues and stamped on papers.

    I think I posted this a long time ago to install your original no. plates with security screws or break off screws and nuts on their backs (a drop of loctite will also help) - this makes sure that anyone who is planning to steal them has got to remove the bumper first then take them out or open up the boot and use some fancy tools to remove the rear plate.

    DONT MAKE IT EASY TO REMOVE THE PLATES.

    Dont get yourself into the resale bit, Resale will not give you ladoo or make you a billionaire. In your case if you dont take action and the smart thief does to extract your file then your car will be worth exactly ZERO rupees.
