Parallel plates with different charges

If the two parallel metal plates X & Y having charge q1 & q2 are placed close to each other. Let the medium between the plates is air or vacuum. then in order to make net electric field in each plate zero, charges redistribute such that inner faces have equal & opposite charges & extreme faces have equal & of same sign as shown below

Elec. field on the left side (L) of plates, right side of plate (R) & between the plates due to the charge on face a, b, c & d is
