I had a great experience with Orbiz Automotivez that I'd like to share.

Contacted them via their Facebook page as the exact number plate style I wanted wasn't available on their website. They immediately asked for my WhatsApp number and sent me a message with their brochure that contained all details and prices. Once I had confirmed my choice, they sent their NEFT details, I made the transfer and sent them my registration number and address. They confirmed receipt and as I am in Pune said they would be shipping from the Bangalore workshop and that I would receive it in 3 days. However I was extremely surprised when I received it the next day itself - from payment till delivery was about 28 hours!

The package was packed extremely well in a cardboard box with their own branding et al. Plates are of excellent quality and the frames are pretty decent too. Total cost was Rs.1350 (1000 for car size German font number plates with no background logo or country sticker, and 350 for the frames).

Highly recommended service and would deal with them 100% again if I had to. They even sent a video after delivery explaining how to install the plates, but that is quite self explanatory anyway! Their WhatsApp number is: 9995848855.

Give them a go!

EDIT: MODS - As this thread is dedicated to Movell, I wonder if we should have a dedicated thread to Orbiz or rename this thread to cover several suppliers? No affiliation to anyone, just a happy customer.

I am highly doubtful of the dye used. A drop of adhesive on the side border removed the dye! I am not sure how long its going to hold, unless of course we give it a clear coat treatment.

A drop in the frame edge to secure the broken lock properly.

Leave 10 minutes gap between each spray and ensure that it dries under the sun. This will make the plates look new forever. Besides, it is easier to clean as well.

I have done this to 3 sets of plates and all of them look brand new even after 2 years of usage.

Credit for this tip goes to BHPian @sunnyboi who shared this with me.
Thanks for this tip, where to source the clear coat. Is this the same clear coat which is under the car body paint also?

Is there any advantage in using frames other than aesthetics?

Yes, they are make it much easier to install the plates as the frames can basically fit on any existing holes in your bumper, and then the plates slide in with no drilling required on the plates themselves.

If you have a Vento, getting frames additionally makes more sense since the number plate area (both front & back) has a cut-out of specific size.
If you just buy the plates (like I did), then there is additional hassle of aligning the plate dimension to the cut-out area.
So, you can get the frames from here or if in doubt, please source it from a local dealer.
