The Kala Chashma trend has taken over the internet. In recent months, many celebrities have jumped on the trend, with the hit song from Katrina kaif-Siddharth Malhotra starrer Baar Baar Dekho. And now Delhi police have also used the viral trend to issue a warning to those who have installed black window films in their cars. Police also said on Twitter that they are launching a drive from today to punish those who have tinted glass outside the legal limits.
“Starting today, #DelhiTrafficPolice will penalize those who have tinted glass/glass films that exceed the permitted limits. We will also check minors who indulge in driving without a license and punish the vehicle owners,” Delhi Police said on Twitter.
The Hindi meme accompanying the tweet says “black sunglasses really suit you, but not your car’s tinted glasses” when translated to English.
The police have also given the allowable limit for visual light transmission. According to the guidelines, the film should not be less than 50% for side glass and less than 70% for front and rear windows.
Twitter users were surprised to know that there is an allowed limit for the glass film.
“Today? Hasn’t it been in place for a long time… I was also told by DP staff that there is no allowable limit… It was very clear according to them… It is strictly not allowed,” one user commented .
“Is there an allowable limit on the tint of windows, as far as I know there is a Supreme Court ruling that prohibits putting anything on a car window,” said another.
One of the most popular dance groups to capitalize on the viral trend is Norway-based Quick Style. Many of their videos have become extremely popular on Instagram. In one of their recent videos, the dancers performed the coordinated dance to the same song in Times Square, New York.
The reel has racked up over 2 million views on Instagram in less than three days.
