Thickness is the giveaway. Compare your good window with a Toyota. Go on from there. I doubt if you will get an original from any indi supplier.

What physical feature makes the glass "anti-theft"? Is it a thin wire that will break and sent off the alarm if the window is broken? If so there will be connected wires to the base of the glass in the door. Get to know the differences so YOU can tell THEM which is which. All easy after that.
