SC bans use of tinted glass beyond permissible limits
The Supreme Court on Friday banned the use of tinted glass that restrict vision beyond permissible limit as fixed under the Motor Vehicles Act, in vehicles.

A bench headed by Chief Justice SH Kapadia, however, made it clear that tinted glass can be used in vehicles used by government officials for security purposes and asked the state-governments to frame guidelines regarding the ban.

The Central Motor Vehicle Rules, 1989, say the glass on the windscreens and rear windows of vehicles should have a visual light transmission of 70% and for side windows it should be at least 50%. The court passed the order on a plea seeking complete ban on use of dark films on car windows, including the vehicles used by VVIPs, alleging that many crimes in cities were committed by people using such cars with tinted windows.

 The petitioner, Avishek Goenka, had contended that he had 25 RTI query-replies from various police stations to back his claim that many crimes, including sexual assault on women, were committed by offenders who used cars with tinted glasses to evade public gaze and conceal identity.
