Imphal, Feb 19: Even as the state government is all set to make sound limiter compulsory during festival or any public functions as of now no authority responsible for checking of the noise pollution have taken up any effective measures to prevent noise pollution. Students appearing in the upcoming Class X, Class XI and Class XII exam are severely disturbed by the increasing noise pollution.
Independent survey conducted by expert says that the noise pollution level here in Imphal is moderate. Authorities of the pollution control board too say the similar thing. However, noise pollution created from source other than vehicles and sounds of festivals have been seriously affecting the students. Sound pollutants from Machineries of construction both use by carpenters and construction workers at various localities are left free with no authority to check it.
“My daughter finds difficult to concentrate on her studies as the noise from electric saw and planer from my neighbour is making too much noise”, Ibobi (not real name) a resident of Heirangoithong Imphal said. The person did not want to disclose as disclosing his identity would be like establishing bitter relation with his neighbour. The same is stated by another father who hails from Heingang.
“Live concert, and public meeting are real disturbance to our children in their studies”, another parents from Thangmeiband near THAU Ground said.
Another parents of a boy from Thangmeiband area while appreciating the government move to introduce sound limiter to public occasion is a good initiative, however, he questioned the government on who will be or is checking the kind of noise pollution from various machineries use for construction of houses in locality.
“Govt. should formulate a mechanism to control sound pollution at locality created by the machineries”, he added.
He further added that complaining about the matter will make misunderstanding among neighbours but this kind of noise pollution needs to be checked.
