New rules on noise levels at airports

Amid complaints from people residing near airports, the government is now planning to bring down the permissible noise levels by five decibels to 70 decibels at busy airports and 65 decibels at other facilities during the daytime.

A draft notification was issued by the Ministry of Environment, Forest and Climate Change last week seeking suggestions from stakeholders and the public on reducing the noise limit.
