BENGALURU: Residents of M S Ramaiah North City Layout have raised their voices against the noise generated from diesel generators and air-conditioned chiller cooling units at Manyata Embassy Business Tech Park at Nagawara.
M R Ravindra, president of M S Ramaiah North City Layout Residents Welfare Association, filed a PIL seeking directions to the authorities to take remedial measures to stop noise pollution.
Hearing the petition, a division bench of Chief Justice Subhro Kamal Mukherjee and Justice R B Budihal issued a notice to M/s Manyata Promoters Pvt Ltd, Mfar Developers Pvt Ltd and Karnataka State Pollution Control Board (KSPCB).
“Our health is being affected due to stress-related illness and lack of proper sleep owing to noise from the tech park. Noise is leading to chronic disorders and we cannot even open doors and windows as per our wish. The residents are restricted from using the garden of the respondents,” Ravindra said in the petition.
The counsel for the petitioner argued that KSPCB is not considering the grievances of the residents and that the other two respondents are taking undue advantage of it.
