Sorry for being late in the thread, just saw the reply in Most stolen cars thread & came here. Very sorry to hear about ur loss. Hope you will get ur ride soon. Also as others said, please be prepared for the worst & for the insurance claim.
IIRC, We have to submit FIR copy & NOC [Not sure about exact name]from police to insurance people for the claim. Lucky you got lodged FIR.
for NOC, policewala will really hesitate to give easily, because it proves the inefficiency of them to find the theft vehicle. That form states that they cannot recover the vehicle stolen in their area.
Sorry to discourage you, but be prepared to experience something like below explained,is what we experienced,
We have faced this problem twice, once for my uncle's XL super Heavy Duty in 2006 & MY cousin's Discover 125 in 2008. Both in pondicherry, but different police stations.
For us both times, filing FIR is itself a big head ache.NOC is other different story.
My cousin used to get calls from police stating that they found his discover, when he goes there they show some scrap junks, asked/forced him to accept that as his one. This happened 2-3 times, later he got frustrated & used his office MD's local political influence to get the clearance from Police.
My uncle got letter form MLA to get clearance from them for XL super. BOth times it was a real struggle, spent lot of time, money. absolutely no peace of mind. FYI
, XL super is 9 month old & Discover 125 is 1 year 3 month old, when they got stolen.
Our idiotic politicans & their outdated law structure.
Not sure about your area though. Let's hope & pray for the best.
Sorry if i sait something OT
, i think i haven't.
