A simple self-declaration of loss should be made sufficient instead of FIR
As you know F I R lodgment is a problem in India and persons are suffering since long as they are unable to furnish F I R on the loss of any important documents like Share Scripts, Land Deed, House/ Flat Ownership Papers etc. as many a times these documents are misplaced by them or they lose it while travelling, shifting house etc. Even we have observed instances where it gets stolen while travelling and people don't know the procedures upfront. Hence Govt. of India should waive this and provide relief. In case total waiver is not possible i.e. in all the cases then this waiver should be provided where any release of documents [such as Share Scrip, Land Deed etc.] Authorities require notarized Indemnity Bond on stamp Paper, notarised affidavit on Stamp Paper etc. besides F I R.
I emphasis a simple self-declaration of loss should be made sufficient instead of FIR and for this purpose.
