AGARTALA, April 22 (TIWN): After all when it come for celebration, rules fail to control the tortures done by the majority. As patients, old people belong to the minority, the noise pollution is a non-issue here.

During Durga Puja, Diwali noise pollution goes extreme level, but now marriage ceremonies have turned haunting issues for the local people.

There is no action taken against high sound boxes during day or after night 12 also. The most sufferers are the old people, little babies.

According to the Noise Pollution (Regulation and Control) Rules, 2000, as amended in 2012, the noise level at market places between 6am to 10pm should be below 65 dB. However, a relaxation of 10 dB is also given under rule 5(4) of the same taking the upper limit to 75 dB for special occasions. Loudspeakers are not allowed after 10pm.

But question arises, who cares for all those rules? Who cares for if there is really some old people getting highly effected by loud noise?
