Bombay High Court gets festival ready, tells municipalities to ensure no noise pollution

The Bombay High Court said on Tuesday it will put all municipal corporations and councils on notice before the festive season begins, to ensure proper compliance of noise pollution norms and that no pandal is put up illegally.

A division bench of Justice Abhay Oka and Justice Riyaz Chagla said: “This festive season we will not allow any illegality; we have given many chances for compliance of our orders.” The court has asked the government to place the festival chart on record by July 3.
