The stipulated noise levels presently have the range of 93 db to 112 db, and the Indian Government aims to reduce this range by around 10 per cent, which is about 88db to 100 db. Currently, the Ministry of Road Transport and Highways is contemplating this decision and is in talks with vehicle and component manufacturers and the Society of Indian Automobile Manufacturers (SIAM), to come to a detailed conclusion.

The reason why the government has decided to take this measure is that it feels noise pollution has become a major problem across India. In fact, it’s also seen as one of the key causes for increasing hearing loss and damage to eardrums.
