Here's the IFIXIT guide for the MacBook Pro 13" Mid '11 model Upper case replacement.

Sorry to say the keyboard is part of this assembly. While some people have managed to get from China directly just the keyboard sub-assembly it is a bear to replace as you'll need to remove about 50 screws or snap rivets.

Did you spill something into the keyboard?

Dear sir thank you very much for your kind answer. My macbook model is 13" late 2011. i didn't spill anything in the key board. The Num keys stopped working at the first time but after restart it use to work then again stopped for the couple of the times. But now it is permanently stopped working.

Sorry to say I think the keyboard is damaged here. While you might be able to get the keyboard alone directly from China it's a lot of work to replace as you have about 50 screws and/or pop rivets to remove. It's just easier replacing the full upper case.

As a last ditch effort, I would recommend reinstalling the OS before replacing any hardware. Please back up your information before reinstalling the OS. The fact that it worked sometimes makes me think it might be a software issue.

Happy to here your number keys are working again! Did you swap out the top case or were you able to get a replacement keyboard and just replace it?

First hook up an external keyboard and see if the number keys work on it to eliminate a software issue. If the keys work on the external, your keyboard sounds like it has shorted out and you will need an uppercase replacement.

Best to create your own question here with all of your systems details as well as what happened. Sadly, it may require replacing a part or two.
