Noise Pollution

  • In March 2011, MoEF set up real time monitoring centres in seven Indian cities
    • The results indicate that the ambient noise in residential and commercial areas is far in excess not just of a healthy level but the standards set by law as well.
  • Effects include
    • Loss of hearing sensitivity in specific frequencies
    • Non auditory effects like hypertension, heart rate disorders, and psychological stress
  • Problem areas
    • Lack of reliable data
    • <the sensors installed in seven cities is a step forward>
  • What to do?
    • The Noise Pollution (Regulation and Control) Rules, 2000 should be appropriately amended and enforced
    • According in the rules, any person can make a complaint to the designated authority, such as the police, if the ambient noise exceeds the prescribed standard by 10 dB or more.
    • The data generated by the sensors should be in the public domain on the internet, fi the system is to serve any meaningful purpose
