Key blanks can be cut locally using these common blank substitutes:

ILCO X186 --------------------------------- Suzuki replacement key 
DA-24 -------------------------------------- Nissan replacement key
Hillman SU-17 ----------------------------- General replacement 

The key lock on your steering column has a four digit code (e.g., 4516) imprinted on the lock.  One of the original bajajusa dealers, San Francisco Scooter Centre, advises that they have the original key code patterns and can still cut keys if given the original 4 digit code.

The CDI is the ignition control module, black box, on the left side of the scooter.  It has two plugs, the TRICS plug (3 wire) and CDI plug (5 wire).  The youtube video below depicts a chinese made substitute known as a "New Racing CDI-TZR50."  This manufacture makes a number of similarly labeled cdi's.  The plug and play  one for the Chetak is the one with the 5 pin connector.

While Bajaj replacement cables are preferred, cables for a Vespa PX150 or equivalent (Stella) will fit fine.
