REVIEW ON NOISE POLLUTION
The study examines the problem of noise pollution in the wake of its ill effect on the life of the people. A cross section survey of the population in Delhi State points out that main sources of noise pollution are loudspeakers and automobiles. However, the population is affected by religious noise a little more than male population. Major effects of noise pollution include interference with communication, sleeplessness, and reduced efficiency. The extreme effects e.g. deafness and mental breakdown neither is ruled out. Generally, a request to reduce or stop the noise is made out by the aggrieved party. However, complaints to the administration and police have also been accepted as a way of solving this menace. Public education appears to be the best method as suggested by the respondents.
