Does this mean that all companies that make / sell glass tints will now shut shop?

First they make us remove the films. After 3 months, when everything cools off, we go & fix the films again!

Crores made, Lakhs shared.

I really love our India.

No. The companies manufacture film for other applications/uses also - like for buildings. Film for automobiles is just one component of their business.

I want some kind of film on the windows, i don't want the thin unlaminated window glass glass shatter and rain on my face if something hits it. Let me see if i can find some high VLT non tinted film.

Looks like the local papers also mentioned about this. 3 days left to remove the films!

This is just awesome. Just a month ago, I got VKools 99% heat rejection tints installed which costed me a bomb and by bomb I mean close to 28000 INR. Now the Honourable SC wants me to flush that kind of money down the drain? Kudos to the apex law making authority.

With such absurd judgement passed, I can't help but speculate the future ones. "The SC hereby bans the use of any form of air conditioning in cars as from effective tomorrow onwards windows of cars need to remain open at all times."

And maybe a few years down the line "Due to the increasing cases of illegal and criminal activities carried out in automobiles, only cabriolets and convertibles shall be allowed on the roads thereby promoting impeccable visibility to the pandus on the roads. Citizens are expected to dispose off their current vehicles within 3 days failing which their roof and pillars will be sliced off"

I checked with 3M HSR Layout Bangalore and they mention Sunfilms with VLT 70% in the front and 50% for the sides and rear are allowed as per the new law.

Either the law is comprehended incorrectly or written that way for the police to make money or the companies are not aware of the tsunami! :-)

Why dont we have a poll on this?

what about some top end cars which have OEM tinted glasses? is that not considered a security threat?. Most of the crime community ( politicos) have highend cars which have tinted glass, will the police break the windscreen of such cars?. It is always the common man who is put into all these stupid pressures.

Generally the crimes are also committed with stolen vehicles. What if a high end car with factory fitted tinted glasses gets stolen and gets used for a crime. Whats Next then? SOS God!

After Monday, nothing regarding this has been featured in TOI, Mumbai Edition. Anyone else got any information from any other newspapers or other source?

Will this be like the HSRP ruling they had earlier which was supposed to have been implemented across various states already? That too was under the premise that crimes against women use cars with fake number plates. How far have we progressed on that front?
