Bangalore: Sun Film with Extra Tint should be Removed from Cars Before May 19

Bangalore, May 7 (The Hindu): In the wake of a Supreme Court order prohibiting usage of sun films on windows and windshields of cars, the police will begin penalising errant vehicle owners from May 20.

A senior traffic police official said that vehicle owners in the city have been given time till May 19 to get rid of sun films on windows and windshields of their cars.

Deputy Commissioner of Police, East-Traffic division, Muthanna B.A., said that cars, at the time of delivery, will have a thin film on their windows and windshields, with the permissible level of tint. “Only this is allowed,” he said. Vehicle owners, who have added tint to stock windows and windshields after purchasing their vehicles, will have to remove them, he added.

According to a statement, vehicles will be allowed to have sun films with 70 per cent visual light transmission (VLT) for front and rear windscreens, and 50 per cent VLT for side glasses, under Rule 100 of Central Motor Vehicles Rule, 1989.


Penalty

After May 19, if vehicle owners are found violating the law, they will be fined Rs. 300, and repeated violations will land them in jail for contempt of court, Mr. Muthanna said. Mr. Muthanna added that several criminal activities have been reported in the recent past in many cities across the country in such vehicles. Hence, the Supreme Court has ordered the removal of sun films to avert such activities in vehicles.

He, however, said that vehicle owners who have obtained permission from the Union Home Ministry to have tinted glasses in view of their safety will be allowed to have such sun films on their vehicles.

When pointed out that several celebrities and businessmen use cars with sun films, Mr. Muthanna said that the law will apply to everybody, including celebrities and businessmen. “Only, people with Z plus security, having permission from Union Home Ministry, will be exempted from the rule,” he said.

Meanwhile, Commissioner for Transport and Road Safety, Bangalore, T. Shama Bhatt, said that the Supreme Court has directed all States to strictly implement the provisions of Rule 100 of Central Motor Vehicles Rules 1989.

The Transport Department has formed squads to check such vehicles.

Violators will be fined and action will be taken to suspend registration certificates as per Section 53 (1) of the Motor Vehicles Act 1988, Mr. Bhatt said.

    Supreme court could have put the onus on car manufacturers who have to supply as per RTO directive.
    Gainers: Police, Skin specialist, thieves, upholstery guys
    Losers: Public, more fuel consumption, guys who put the films, lonely/all women drivers

    Just imagine the amount of garbage that the discarded films will generate.

    I wonder how many criminal cases involving sunfilm covered vehicles are there in INDIA?

    What about such a rule in other developed countries?

    It says that for windscreens and rear windows of vehicles visual light transmission should be 70 per cent. For side windows, it should be at least 50 per cent.

    How is the police going to verify this percentage, will they have some electronic device.

    If the vehicle owner wants to know his car's sun film percentage then how can he get it checked.

    You are right. I recall now how the terrorist organisation Sanatha Sanstha have hidden explosives in their car which had tinted glass and they were caught by the SIT when transporting it for terror activities...I agree with you.

    I fully agree and endorse with supreme court order but we have to watch and see how many of our people will agree/respect the order with sincerity.Laws and orders are made for to be broken,which is by the people,of the people and for the people.Good move by the apex court.I sincerely accept it.But again room for corrupt officials to mint money and amass disproportionate wealth.

    Juat implement it with iron hand..Let sense prevail and let these tinted cars not become a den for illegal activities...At the same time let the police come heavy on mobike riders who dont wear hard hats or helmets. Not wearing helmet is greater offence than car having tints. Helmet saves pretty good lives and two wheelers are porn to accidents. Lets save some young lives by making it compulsion to wear helmets while riding two wheelers.

    Not all Mangoes are rotten. You cannot expect everyone to remove the Tint. You cannot see the world with suspicion. If this rule is applicable to common man alone,then let even the officials be brought under the purview of this law.because NO one is Above law

    Before implementing this SC should have seriously thought of below issues
    - Women driving home late at night could become easy target for criminals
    - Incidence of road-rage and stalking is likely to rise
    - Hundreds of small-time sun film dealers and workers will find it difficult to survive
    - Cops have another excuse to fine people and ask for bribes
    - Celebrities and foreign visitors will not get enough privacy
    - VIPs may be exempted from the ban, in which case criminals can claim to be VIPs and carry on with their business
    - More visibility makes it easier for thieves to rob empty cars: At risk are costly stereos and electronic gadgets
    - Seasoned criminals will find another way to hide anything illegal

    Oh c'mon. Everybody knows that these rules and regulations are only for low-end vehicles.
    1. Luxury vehicles are never stopped even when the driver is merrily chatting on his phone.
    2. Has anybody ever seen an Audi, Jaguar ,BMW or Mercedes being stopped by the Police for so called "Document Checking"??
    3. Many luxury vehicles in Mangalore nowadays have Pondicherry(PY) registration. Has Pondicherry opened an extension counter here?
    The bitter truth is that:
    "Luxury vehicles are not bound by any rules. People who follow rules and pay taxes can never buy a Luxury vehicle!!"

    If visibility is there as per norms, there should not be any harm in putting the film. Good quality film helps in reduction in UV rays and heat. This is most stupidest order, that too in this hot summer.

    It is horrible to go long drive in cars as Utra violet heat of sun will make you sweat and the interior of Car also will have negative effect besides lack of privacy.In the order there is confusion also 70% and 50% clarity which gives enough negotiating clause for some fast bucks to police Department.For the mistake of few,all four wheel passengers forced to bear the heat!!Due to the TINT ORDER,the AC of car will need for compressing/power to get controlled temp.
