Noise pollution is causing
great damage to general public health. It leads to irritation, loss of sleep,
rest and peace. It is harmful to physical and mental health of the people.
Frequent loud noise affects the working efficiency of the people. Persistent
noise pollution causes a loss of sense of hearing too.
Increasing noise pollution is a big threat to the health and fitness of the
people. If noise pollution is allowed to go unchecked with the increasing number
of vehicles on roads, rising growth of factories and construction work,
loudspeakers used on various occasions and the playing of film songs and pop
music at wedding celebrations, then it may rob the people of their hearing
capacity. All of these are responsible for causing noise pollution.
Noise control laws are openly violated. It is time the authorities wake up and
act against the danger of noise pollution. They should strictly enforce noise
Noise-producing factories located in the residential areas should be shifted to
far-off places without any delay. The use of loudspeakers should be stopped
after a specific time.
The public needs to cooperate against the dangers of noise pollution. Without
public cooperation the authorities cannot make much difference.
It is earnestly hoped that the authorities concerned would take urgent necessary
action against those responsible for noise pollution to relieve the people from
its harmful effects.
