I would like to draw the kind attention of the concerned authorities, towards increasing problems of noise pollution . It is causing great damage to the health problems of the city. It leads to irritation, loss of sleep, rest and peace. It is harmful to physical and mental health of people. Frequent loud noise effects the working efficiency of the people. Persistent noise pollution causes a loss of sense of hearing. 

Increasing noise pollution is a big threat to the health and fitness of the people. If the noise pollution is allowed to go unchecked it may rob the people of their hearing capacity, creasing number of vehicles on the roads, rising growth of factories, construction work, loudspeakers used on various occasions, rock and pop music, are various factors responsible for causing noise pollution . Noise control laws are openly violated. 

It is the time that the authorities should wake up against the danger of noise pollution and should strictly enforce noise control laws. 

It is earnestly hoped that concerned authorities will take immediate and urgent necessary action against those responsible for noise pollution to relieve the people from the harmful effects.
