Actually, the figures of the Pollution Control Board are going to tell us such a bitter truth which we are not taking seriously right now but in the coming days, these are going to become the biggest reason for our physical and mental health. Actually, for the condition of noise pollution in the capital Jaipur, the Pollution Board has created eight zones in four categories in Jaipur. The area of ​​Governor House and Durlabh G Hospital comes in the silence zone. The ideal condition of noise here should be 50 decibels during the day and 40 decibels at night, on the contrary, here it is more than 68 decibels during the day and more than 61 decibels at night. Similarly, the standard in the residential area should be 55 decibels during the day and 45 decibels at night.

Mansarovar, which falls in this category, has a noise level of 59 decibels during the day and 62 decibels at night. Despite Mansarovar being a residential area, there are more noisy activities at night which is a matter of concern. Shastri Nagar has a noise level of more than 75 decibels during the day and about 73 decibels at night. Rajapark and Chhoti Chaupad are considered commercial areas and here too the noise pollution is above the standards. An astonishing fact is that the standards for industrial areas are 75 decibels during the day and 70 decibels at night. In contrast, the noise level in Jaipur’s industrial areas VKI and Sitapura is even lower than the standards.
