black film on cars

recently women organisation is sending letter to chief minister, and commissioner of police to impose ban on black flim on car glass, the question is
do this will reduce the rape cases in car?
do this mean that right of privacy is not at all there as if we are going in a car with transparant glass with ladies do the anti social elements not use to follow the car as they take glimpse of who is sitting inside?
do this mean many rape cases if happening in houses all the houses shall be made of glass?
i think cars are a private place of individuals and right of privacy should be there , if law requires decrease in number of cases of rape happening in cars the cars with black films can be checked and this is the duty of police dept, imposing a ban on black films is not the solution as this will effect the privacy of common man.
pls share your thoughts on this issue?

The matter has already been settled by the Delhi HC where it lifted the complete ban over the issue of tinted glass in 2007.

A division bench headed by Justice T S Thakur allowed use of black film on front and side windows with the rider that visibility criteria prescribed under the Central Motor Vehicles Act should be followed. The Act lays down a 50% visibility requirement for side windows and a 70% transparency criterion for front and rear windshields.

good evening sir , why is it that in different states different rules for one thing . in this manner don't you think the public is harassed . like in case of filming in delhi we move in filkmed car but whenever i go to panchkula , chandigarh they stop and cut challan for same allowed film .

Dear Parul,

i am not fully conversant with the lawpoint on this matter since I havent gone through the case as a whole yet but still since the Delhi HC has lifted the ban and followed the Central Motor Vehicles Act, we can use this precedent for filing thhe PIL in other vsates also so the unlawful ban can be done away with.
