Hyderabad High Court Allows Loud Speakers

The ruling will however not preclude the police from taking action in the event of any violation of the provisions of the Noise Pollution Rules, 2000.
Hyderabad | 18th September 2015
Upholding the plea of the Telangana Sound, Light & Generator Owners' Association, Justice A V Sesha Sai of the Hyderabad High Court directed the Telangana Home Secretary, the Pollution Control Board, and the Police Commissioners of Hyderabad and Cyberabad not to interfere with the business of the petitioners.

But the same will not preclude the police from taking action in the event of any violation of the provisions of Rule 5 of the Noise Pollution (Regulation & Control) Rules, 2000, by the consumers.

Aggrieved by a notification issued by the Police Commissioners of Hyderabad and Cyberabad against the use of loud speakers and DJs recently, the Telangana Sound, Light & Generator Owners' Association approached the High Court by filing a writ petition to direct the authorities concerned to receive and consider their applications for the grant of permission for using loud speakers and digital systems on various festive occasions as per the Noise Pollution (Regulation & Control) Rules, 2000.

Upon hearing arguments of both the parties, Justice Sesha Sai upheld the contention of the petitioner observing that a perusal of the provisions of Rule 5 of the Noise Pollution (Regulation and Control) Rules, 2000, prima facie supported the contention of the petitioners.

He allowed the writ petition of the Association members and pronounced the order accordingly.

Justice A V Sesha Sai of the Hyderabad High Court where do you live sir. I dont know if you were exposed with the noice that emits from these loud speakers. These people who uses it have absolutely no control on their mic. I wanted to know if you have checked all the details scientifically, There are lot of medical problems connected to it. I have a mother who is 80 years old and it is impossible to sleep with this sound. I am getting mad and losing control on my senses. I cant concentrate on my work, my daughter is not able to do her assignments, my wife is becoming mentally imbalanced. This is the same condition with my neighbors. Who is going to control the levels of the noice at a day to day basis. What are the parameters of usage of these loud speakers. I dont understand in what basis this judgment is given, but definitely I can say that it is not in the best interest of the society.

Loudspeakers of Function Halls is causing tremendous problem to the people residing even half a km away from them. Songs, anchoring, mantras all r played at very high volumes that people have to shout to each other to be heard inside there own homes. kids finding it difficult to study, old persons cannot tolerate. Even after police interfere after sometime the volumes r again high. This happens day after day. A strict rule has to be in place for the usage of loudspeakers.

The Mosques in my area are a big nuisance noise creater. How do I complain about it. 5 times a day the prayers are short and hence tolerable. On Sundays and Fridays the speeches last for 1.5 to 2 Hrs and makes all residents lives miserable. They use mikes 4nos on each minaret and is very loud. Is there a way to curb this practice. Complaint locally to the authorities has been tried and there is no response.

I have called the police several and they (Kushaiguda Police Station) have been very prompt in acting and stopping this nuisance. I think you should seek police assistance.

Loudspeakers can be in a limited volume,but are being misused with high volumes.with only a single loudspeakers they want to make every one hear even at 1 km distance,what about people residing near by that loudspeakers.residents may have infants,old people,and with heart problems. Now we are in modern age ,everyone using cellphones low class to middle class,and attending a phone call is directly related to their careers,business,personal...with these loud speakers on we have to shut at the doors to attend an important call that is very importent,even if we close the doors we can't escape noise.high court should think twice before making this decision.people who organise loud speakers are at a surcastic level,shouting and talking in the mic,police is the only option to control them,in my opinion highcourt decision is not at all wise in restricting the Hyderabad police,in favour of sound and lights association
