Oh c'mon! There's always an answer to "can it get worse?"; yes, it can!

What has our society come to!

That reg. no. will forever remain with your vehicle; nothing to do with RTO now.

Best of luck finding it man, really hope you do.

I can totally empathize with your cousin being a victim of a recent car theft myself. Such quick thefts of immobilizer fitted vehicles causes a grave concern. Are there "Universal" immobilizer keys circulating in the thieves market?

Thieves are staying one (or is it many!) steps ahead of any current Indian security mechanism and seeing the attitude/working of security guards & most of the cops, I guess carjacking has become an easy thing. Came to know from the cops that, just a few days ago 3 cars were stolen from an authorized parking in Noida and that too around noon.

The primary reason for my concern is; all documents, except the RC were there in the truck when it was stolen. Now theoretically, can't the thief have the vehicle transferred to someone else, by getting duplicate RC?

@lordofgondor : IMO you should immediately inform the RTO in written. Even my cousin submitted a copy of FIR along with a letter to freeze the car's data, just in case the thieves copy your signature and get it transferred. It has happened & it can happen.

This gets me thinking.

How safe is it giving our car washers the keys when they have to clean it from inside?

Generally, they take the keys for the entire building at one go and return it in 1-2hrs. Enough time to fool around, ain't it?

If service centres can't be trusted, how can the car washers?

a. Car washers are small folk. They cannot earn money this way - they are normally very poor. if one guy does something sinister - others will spill the beans on him gladly. so less chance.

as opposed to a service center where no one knows each other - no one knows where the other stays exactly etc.

b. This is why you need to use remote locking or take out time. We have underground parking but I park my vehicle on the surface in the morning when I need to get it cleaned from the inside.

@LoG and Scorpman: This is insane. Hope your respective cars are recovered asap. The Verna esp doesnt make sense, being a reasonably used car and one from out of town (HR24 is a rare RTO series within Delhi!)

And mechanics at A.S.S. are not small folk? No one knows each other at A.S.S.? They wouldn't want to spill the beans about others?

Car mechanics might be just a pawn colluding with other people. Car-washers can't do that?

I'm not saying they will but again, our cars are vulnerable there. One car washer is the black sheep, gets key duplicated or whatever, keeps a track of the car's movement and flicks it. Isn't that how a lot of cars are stolen?

Don't refute something just for the sake of it.

Dada,

Its a bit different.

a. I've never had a maid who doesn't gossip about other maids and these car cleaners. I've always had one maid tell about the other having left us - on the day she joined work at the new place. These guys are normally piss poor, less articulate and cannot hide.

They are always working where you can catch them - unlike a mechanic - where your car key is touched by anyone from the guy who:
- parks it to begin with
- changes engine oil
- parks it in the workshop floor
- the guy who actually services it
- the guy who takes it for alignment
- the guy who washes it from outside
- the guy who does the final cleaning from inside.

You only know the service advisor's name and the mechanic. Compare with the car cleaner who is one known entity and is typically the first one to be hauled up by the police.

b. On the other hand, many service center mechanics often do some work on the side, try for tips (and get a few possibly), are a fair bit more read/sophisticated, and will often be wearing clothes/carrying phones better than what they can afford (which are often bought used). who knows whether its bought used or bought new with ill gotten money!!

And I'm not saying you're completely wrong or such - just put forth my points. why get riled up instead of thinking of the perspective of what I've written?

I'm not saying one class is honorable other is dishonorable - just saying one is under close peer/owner monitoring, the other is not. imho. reality raam jaane yaar.

Exactly. Its sirsa, right?

I just meant that HR24 vehicles are very rarely seen in Delhi, so stealing such a vehicle makes them much more liable for discovery - unlike lifting a HR26 car

Really sad to hear it. hope you had done the FIR by now. wish you get the bike back without any hassle.

Had you left the key in bike by any chance, or was it broke open and taken away?

Sorry to hear that buddy. Please register the FIR ASAP. I believe Sector-17 falls under the police station on Mehrauli road.

Have you got the original RC and both the keys with you ?
