Noida:  Delhi's satellite town Noida on Monday became only the third city in the country where police will take action against noise pollution from generator sets, officials said.

A statement from Noida police and civil society organisation Satya Foundation said anyone suffering from noise pollution due to a generator which has not been covered by a canopy can now complain to the police.

"Anyone suffering from noise pollution from canopy-less generators can approach the police and get relief in 15 working days," Deputy Inspector General of Police (Noida) Jyoti Narayan said at a workshop organised for police officers by the foundation.

Noida will be the third place to implement this after Varanasi and Agra, a police spokesperson said.

Founder secretary of the foundation Chetan Upadhyaya said sound level from canopy-less generators is between 100 to 140 decibles, which can create health problems for people.

"Installing canopies and other sound proofing devices will reduce the noise level to 75 decibles," he said.

According to various studies, high noise pollution effects not only hearing power, but also the brain.
