For the past several years, the Community Centre at Sector 15, Part 2, Gurgaon has constantly been a source of incredibly loud noise for the local residents and the hospitals and medical facilities situated in close vicinity. The local administration has regularly been letting this space out commercially to private parties, most of whom indiscriminately play amplified music through DJ systems and loudspeakers, way beyond the decibel limits and the time limits notified by the Noise Pollution (Regulation and Control) Rules 2000 of the Central Pollution Control Board, India.

This Community Centre is located in the midst of a thick residential neighborhood and within a 100 meter distance from more than two Hospitals as well as a few medical facilities, and hence it happens to fall within what must be called a SILENCE ZONE, where, as per the norms, the decibel levels should not exceed 50dB during the day and 40dB during the night. Even in a residential neighborhood the permissible sound levels are 55db and 45db respectively. But the loudspeakers used at the community centre are being allowed to play blasting levels of 70 to 90db routinely from around 6pm till late in the night, at times way beyond midnight. A few of the disturbed residents often try to seek help by calling the local police, but with little or no positive outcome.

The constant onslaught of such high degree of noise has been polluting the ecosystem in this area. Not to talk about the sick, the elderly, the new borns and the students, even the existence of a normal, young and healthy human, forget about the other species, has become a challenge! It's making everyone sick.

We, the residents of Sector 15 Part 2, Gurgaon, therefore request you to help us urgently.

Please declare the area around the Community Centre, Sector 15 Part 2, Gurgaon a "Silence Zone".

Please erect SILENCE ZONE signboards stating the norms and penalties for violators.

Please install a sound level meter (dB meter) at the Community Centre premises.

Please instruct the caretaker at the Community Centre to report for any non compliance.

Please instruct the local police to swiftly swoop down on any volation of Noise Pollution norms, and to arrest the violator and confiscate their equipment.

Please restrict the local administration from commercially letting out the community centre space, that's primarily meant for the use of the residents of Sector 15.

Hoping for your appropriate and fast action,

Thank you!

Asheesh Pandya
