Installation of tile backsprings in India is a challenge.
To install them, you have to remove the front-facing mirror.
The issue, according to a report in the National Herald, stems from a recent court order that made it mandatory for India to install mirrors on all cars in the country.
The move came in response to a case where a man in Uttar Pradesh was fined over 1.5 lakh for the damage caused by a rear-view mirror in a car he was driving.
This happened in September 2017.
The driver had been convicted of violating the order by having the mirror installed on his car.
The court ordered the mirrors to be removed from the car, but this didn’t happen.
Instead, the driver was given a notice to appear before the court again.
But this time, instead of facing the court, he was told that he had to get a court order before he could install the mirrors.
This order was issued by the Additional Sessions Judge of the Allahabad High Court, which ordered that the mirrors be removed.
This is where the problem begins.
In a court notice, the judge stated that the mirror had to be installed on a car “which is being operated with a view to injuring the life of another”.
The judge went on to explain that the driver had to take the case to a magistrate before installing the mirrors and that the order was to be issued as per the law.
The order, in other words, came down from the Allahbad High Court.
The Uttar Pradesh government appealed the order, and this has now led to the problem.
A local judge has now told The Hindu that he is considering a petition to the Allahbakt High Court seeking an order that the judge issue a judicial notice for the removal of the mirrors in the cars of offenders.
“The Allahbakst High Judge has issued a circular to the court in which he is to order the removal from the cars which are being operated in violation of the court order,” the judge wrote.
“I will be considering the petition within two days,” he added.
“If the order is not served within this time limit, the order will be reversed by the court.”
So far, so good.
However, the court has now issued a new order, which is not as stringent as the previous one.
According to the order issued by a court bench headed by A.B. Shah, the mirrors must be removed on cars which have been “registered for a period of one year or less”.
However, in this case, the period was only one year, and in many cases the mirrors are still installed.
So, this order has the potential to change the way that offenders are penalised in the future.
It could also make it harder for offenders to find a vehicle that can comply with the court orders.
This could also mean that drivers who are caught with mirrors on their cars will face a much heavier fine.
The Hyderabad High court had last week ordered the installation of mirrors in a vehicle “which has been registered for a minimum period of six months or more”.
However in a further order, it has said that the court will consider cases where the court is satisfied that the owner has been convicted for violating the court’s order.
In other words there could be a case in which a driver is not guilty of violating court orders, but is guilty of breaking the court rules.
In this case the court would not be happy with the punishment imposed, so the court could order that a penalty be imposed.
This means that in future, a driver could face a fine of Rs 1,000 for not complying with court orders and a penalty of Rs 100,000 or more for violating court rules, but not both.
“It is a very tough order to enforce and we need to look into this very carefully,” the Hyderabad court told The Herald.
