These documents are very important now a day for every individual/common man for one or many reasons.

May be one or two days you will be ignored by the traffic police without driving Licence. But when you have to drive your vehicle daily towards your working place what is the permanent solution?

-Over and above, these all documents are your Personal Identity Proof and Address Proof which you require to verify with the concerned department officials many occasions for various purposes such as during enrolment of Aadhar, Election Card(Voter ID), Opening of Bank A/C, Railway Ticket booking, New LPG Connection, Ration Card Telephone connection and for other numerous things.

Even I lost my scan copies of Passport too, can I apply for the duplicate passport? I can remember my passport number. Give me some ideas.
You can apply for duplicate passport. i.e you can apply for re-issue of passport accompanying following documents;
1. Your Date of birth proof
2. Your Present Address proof
3. Affidavit stating the loss of your passport ( annexure L)
4. If you have the copy of pass port, then first and last 2 pages.
For more details you refer the website;
This article is really helpful Thank you
Car theft police complaint format please
my cheque book and pass book lost
Thank you sir. Informative
sir I have lost my purse I have fir to the police station they gave me a copy of my application. Is it valid?
It is valid if the copy of application returned to you is duly signed by Police Officer In-charge with his name and designation, Police station Address Stamp. Because it is a proof that you have already filed the FIR and the same is received by the concerned Dept. So the copy you received must have the sign & stamp from the recipient dept. with date. On the basis of this only you can make any enquiry further. So in short it is an official proof for you as well as a record reference.
If they have not stamped and signed with date on your copy, you can once again approach them and humbly request for the same (don’t argue with them and keep in mind that it is a police station). Carry extra copy with you.
I think first of all you should inform in writing to your banker for the loss of your cheque book and pass book along with a stop payment request letter against your lost cheque leaves bearing No. from____ to _____. If you do not know the used cheque leaves, you can get it from the bank only. The bank branch manager will also guide you for further action as per their bank procedure. Then you can lodge a complaint with police station as per the above format so that it will help any future misuse of your lost cheques including any bank employee of the branch who knows this fact.
(Format of stop payment request letter)
Account Holder Name
The Branch Manger,
Bank branch address
Sub. : Stop payment against my lost cheque leaves bearing Number from ________ to _________.
Ref. : My saving Account No. __________________
I, the undersigned, hereby request you to kindly make stop payment of all above subject cheque nos with an immediate effect as the same are lost from my end.
Hope you will do the needful.
------------ ( Account holder’s signature)

Note : Take an acknowledgement copy of the above with stamp and signature of the bank branch authority.

Pl help me writing F I R.
The article is party misleading. In the event of documents/items being misplaced/lost, it does not attract lodging of an F.I.R. but only a missing complaint at the police station. The Station House Officer will then make an entry in the Station Diary and will issue a certificate to that effect which will help in procuring a duplicate document from the concerned authority. Only in the event of a cognizable offense being disclosed will an FIR be lodged.
