High Court rejects use of tinted car window for medical reason

The court observed that there are technologies available, by which an individual, who is suffering from a disorder caused by UV rays, can easily protect himself.

The Delhi High Court has refused to interfere on the petition of a man seeking to use black films on his car windows on medical grounds. Vipul Gambhir, the petitioner, suffers from a rare genetic disorder caused by UV rays.

The court observed that there are technologies available, by which an individual, who is suffering from a disorder caused by UV rays, can easily protect himself. The use of the tinted glasses beyond permissible limits is banned due to security reasons.

The court, however, said that it was neither passing any order nor was it inclined to give any relief on the plea seeking direction to authorities not to take any step against the petitioner for using solar control film in his car.

Gambhir told court that doctors asked him to use black film after his condition deteriorated due to exposure to UV radiation.

The Ministry of Road Transport and Highways in response to Gambhir’s plea said that people suffering from such disorders can use cream, sunshed and protective clothing easily available in the market.
