No blanket ban on tinted glasses

No blanket ban on tinted glasses

Though the ban on tinted glasses on vehicles in the City will be strictly enforced from May 20 as per the Supreme Court order, it isn’t a blanket ban.

M A Saleem, Additional Commissioner, Traffic, Bangalore told Deccan Herald that, the Supreme Court order has not imposed a blanket ban on tinted glasses.

 “The order bans the use of any additional material on the glasses to curtail visibility.

But nowadays cars on road are factory made with glasses fitted with a permissible amount of visual light transmission (VLT). The stipulated standards are 70 pc VLT for the front and rear glasses and 40 pc VLT for the side glasses.

Anything above these permissible limits is banned. Mainly any use of additional material or film on the glass to curtail its VLT is banned,” he clarified.
