Govt, Corbett Start Drive To Check Sound Pollution  

The Nainital district administration and Corbett National Park authorities have started work to raise awareness among owners of resorts around Corbett regarding the recent Government order banning sound amplification in resorts within 500 metres of the national park.

Dehradun: It is worth mentioning here that following a directive of the Uttarakhand High Court on a Public Interest Litigation filed by a local NGO, the State Government had ordered a ban on sound amplification in resorts within a specific area around Corbett in April this year. In its PIL, the Ramnagar Himalayan Yuva Gramin Vikas Sansthan had appealed the High Court to mitigate noise that is adversely affecting wildlife in Corbett, famous for its tiger population and rich flora and fauna.

The PIL had also raised concerns about resorts near the national park where parties and marriage functions generate noise detrimental to wildlife. Though municipal areas are excluded from the prohibition, all resorts within 500 metres of the national park will not be allowed to generate noise levels exceeding 50 decibles in the daytime and 40 decibles during the night.

Corbett warden UC Tiwari who is also the member secretary of the task force headed by Nainital Sub District Magistrate, to ensure implementation of the Government order, told The Pioneer that the resort owners have responded positively to the decision.

“While interacting with us earlier, the resort owners said that they were unaware as to the sound limits allowed. We were to demonstrate the levels of sound which can be generated in the resorts during the day and night on Monday but the demonstration was deferred to Tuesday”, he said.
