Since the Supreme Court has passed an order on requirements in regard with sun film, Police have been on the lookout for cars with sun films that do not comply with the court order limit. Indians are not well known for paying fines to men in uniforms.
Many car owners that have sun films which do not comply with Supreme Court orders are rushing to shops to remove the sun film. Although car owners have switched to panic mode, shopkeepers offering car accessories and repairs are enjoying the smooth ride in top gear.
Apparently shop owners are charging between Rs 300 and Rs 600 to get rid of the tint and between Rs 2000 and Rs 3000 to get glasses fixed with film that meets requirements with the court order. According to newspaper reports shop owners were not able to cope up with the sudden surge in demand to get rid of sun film or get sun film fixed.
The court Order mentions the films on the front and rear should be 70% transparent and films for the side windows 40% transparent. Popular films sold by shops in India are Bluemax and Garware Sun Control.
