The ministry has written to IRDA, suggesting it to exclude policyholders from claiming insurance for vehicles whose windows are darker than permitted in case of an accident

The Union road ministry has asked the IRDA (Insurance Regulatory and Development Authority) to include the use of tinted glass or solar films as a violation of the conditions of warranty in the insurance policy, according to a media report.

The ministry has written to the insurance regulator, suggesting it to exclude policyholders from claiming insurance for vehicles whose windows and windscreens are darker than permitted in case of an accident.

According to the Central Motor Vehicle Rules 1989, the windscreen and rear window of a vehicle should have 70% visual light transmission. For side windows, it should be at least 50%.

The ministry has also written to chief secretaries of states across India to implement the rule strictly. The registration of vehicles that violate the tinted-glass rule repeatedly should be cancelled, the report concluded.
