It is 2008 and glass has not yet been discovered in some KSRTC (Kerala, not Karnataka) buses. They still use the rexin over metal frames for windows. How about some transparency? The windshields, thankfully are glass. This is common all over Kerala - in fact there are very few buses with glass panes. If it not this rexin thing, it is pretty basic brown tarpaulin.

Why? Cartelization is one obvious answer, but that doesnt explain why private and public transport alike follows the same pattern. I think it is because in communist gods own country the hourly strikes would cause glass to be broken far too frequently.
Any other ideas?
