      लखनऊ 23  फरवरी 2013
      ध्वनि प्रदूषण के खिलाफ अभियान में लगी संस्था 'सत्या फाउंडेशन'  ने उत्तर प्रदेश के पुलिस महानिदेशक से मांग की है कि बिना कैनोपी वाले जेनरेटरों के खिलाफ प्रदेशव्यापी अभियान चलाया जाये. आज शनिवार को राजधानी लखनऊ में डीजीपी को दिए गए पत्रक में संस्था ने इस बारे में ध्वनि प्रदूषण (विनियमन व  नियंत्रण) नियम-2000 (कृपया इसे पर्यावरण संरक्षण एक्ट-1986 के साथ जोड़कर पढ़ा जाए) का उल्लेख किया है जिसके तहत पुलिस विभाग के क्षेत्राधिकारी (उप पुलिस अधीक्षक) या इससे ऊपर के अधिकारी को यह शक्ति मिली हुई है कि वह 15 दिनों की नोटिस देकर 75 डेसीबल से ज्यादा शोर करने वाले मशीन या जेनरेटर पर कैनोपी व उच्च क्वालिटी के साइलेंसर को लगवाने के लिए कानूनी रूप से बाध्य कर सकते हैं। कानून का पालन न होने की अवस्था में जेनरेटर को जब्त करके उचित धाराओं में मुकदमा किया जा  सकता है। चूँकि 5 किलोवाट का खुला जेनरेटर भी 100 डेसीबल से ज्यादा का शोर करता है, इसलिये यह नियम सभी छोटे-बड़े जेनरेटरों पर लागू होता है. अभी तक की व्यवस्था में पड़ोसी के कानफाडू जेनरेटर को शांत कराने के लिए पीड़ित लोग प्रदूषण नियंत्रण बोर्ड के वर्षों तक चक्कर लगाते रहते हैं। 'सत्या 
      फाउंडेशन' की कोशिशों से हिन्दुस्तान में वाराणसी पहला जिला है जहां पुलिस ऐसी शिकायतों पर एक्शन ले रही है। 'सत्या फाउंडेशन' का सपना है कि ऐसी समयबद्ध व्यवस्था पूरे उत्तर प्रदेश और फिर पूरे देश में लागू हो. 

      पुलिस महानिदेशक की अनुपस्थिति में पुलिस उपमहानिरीक्षक (जन शिकायत) श्री जय नारायण सिंह ने 'सत्या फाउंडेशन' के सचिव चेतन उपाध्याय से पत्रक को ग्रहण किया और  जन-स्वास्थ्य से जुड़े इतने महत्वपूर्ण मसले  पर त्वरित कार्रवाई का आश्वासन दिया ।

      PRESS RELEASE


      LUCKNOW, 23rd February, 2013

      Satya Foundation, a national organisation battling against the problem of Noise Pollution has demanded the Director General of Police (Uttar Pradesh) to launch state-wide campaign against the canopyless generators. In the memorandum handed over to the DGP office in Lucknow on Saturday, Satya Foundation has cited the Noise Pollution (Regulation & Control) Rules-2000 (read with Environment Protection Act-1986) wherein any police officer of level of Circle Officer
      (D.S.P.) and above can give 15 days notice to the owners of such noisy machines/generators producing more than 75 db of noise and in case of non-compliance, register FIR under I.P.C. 268, 290 and 291 apart from
      the Environment Protection Act-1986. Since even a generator of 5 KVa produces unbearable noise (more than 100 db), the rule applies for all the small and big generators.

      Till now, people suffering from the noise pollution have to run to the office of State Pollution Control Board for years, to get the generator of the neighbor fitted with canopy (a sound proofing equipment). With the efforts by Satya Foundation, Varanasi is the first place where the Police is taking action against such nuisance in 15 days. Satya Foundation wants this time-bound system to be implemented in whole of Uttar Pradesh & then rest of the country.


      In the absence of DGP, the DIG (Public Grievance) of U.P. Police, Mr. Jai Narayan Singh took the letter in a very positive spirit and promised the Satya Foundation Secretary, Chetan Upadhyaya to take prompt & suitable action in such an important matter related to public health.

      Subject: State-wide Action against Canopyless Generators

       

       

      Dear Sir,

       

      This is to kindly bring to your notice about the problems faced by the people due to Noise Pollution caused by the Generators.

       

      Sir,  the ideal decibel level for human being is somewhere between 35 to 40 db while any of the canopy less generators in the market is producing sound somewhere between 100 to 150 db and  even more which is creating so many problems & diseases for the people.  For any generator manufacturer, installing canopy and other sound proofing device so as to reduce the noise level to 75 db (at distance of 1 meter from the source)  is an essential precondition, but in absence of regulation, people are bound to suffer silently for years and years.

       

      But now armed with the provisions of the Noise Pollution (Regulation and Control) Rules-2000, any police officer of level of C.O. (D.S.P.) and above can give 15 days notice to the owners of such noisy machines/generators producing more than 75 db of noise and in case of

                                      -Page 2 of 2-

       

      non-compliance, register FIR under I.P.C. 268, 290 and 291 apart from

      the Environment Protection Act-1986. Since even a generator of 5 KVa produces unbearable noise (more than 100 db), the rule applies for all small and big generators.  

       

      On behalf of crores of people in the state, Satya Foundation requests you to take this matter on a high priority. It will be highly appreciated if all the Circle Officers of the state police be instructed to make database of any such open/noisy machines/generators in their area and get notice  issued to them, suo-moto.

       

      Alternatively, police can go for state-wide advertisement in major newspapers giving deadline for all generators to be fitted with canopy and high-quality silencer.

       

      Sir, I am hundred percent sure that this step on your part will go a long way in helping the people, especially the elderly, expecting mothers, infants and patients in getting rid of the severe problems caused by noise pollution from the Canopyless generators.  

       

      Thanks and regards,
