Uttarakhand HC Modifies Its Earlier Judgment Setting Maximum Noise Limit For Loudspeakers

The Uttarakhand High Court has modified a directive issued in its 2018 judgment setting maximum noise level for loudspeakers. In the said judgment, the state was directed to to ensure that no loudspeaker or public address system shall be used by any person including religious bodies in Temples, Mosques and Gurudwaras without written permission of the authority even during day time, that too, by getting an undertaking that the noise level shall not exceed more than 5dB(A) peripheral noise level. The Court made this modification while considering an application filed under Sections 151 and 152 CPC read with Article 226 of the Constitution of India by a representative of all mutawallies of Waqfs of all mosques in the entire State of Uttarakhand.
