HC notice to Punjab, Haryana, Chandigarh on noise pollution

CHANDIGARH: The Punjab and Haryana High Court has asked Chandigarh and the States of Punjab and Haryana to direct the companies not to manufacture audio equipments beyond a permissible limit so that no noise pollution is caused. The directions were passed during the resumed hearing of a public interest litigation (PIL) arising out of a suo motu notice taken by the High Court on a letter written by a Punjab-based resident. The resident had alleged that people living in his colony have to suffer noise pollution as the authorities were doing little to keep a check on the menace. A division bench on Monday directed the counsels appearing on behalf of Punjab, Haryana and Chandigarh to seek instructions from the state authorities and direct the companies not to manufacture audio equipment such as loudspeakers beyond the permissible decibel limit
