Judgement of the National Green Tribunal (Central Zonal Bench, Bhopal) in the matter of Chhattisgarh Nagrik Sangarsh Samiti Vs Principal Secretary, Nagariya Parishashan and Vikas Vibhag & Others dated 27/09/2016 regarding imposing a ban on the use of DJs and loudspeakers along with the all types of processions including rallies, Chhattisgarh. The Applicant has further said that erection of pandals and welcome gates on public properties and on roads leads to congestion and blockages of traffic which also causes high levels of air pollution and noise pollution as such permissions should not be accorded.

National Green Tribunal directs the State of Chhattisgarh to ensure that sufficient number of monitoring stations in urban areas with specialized equipments for monitoring air and noise pollution levels be installed with the data being made available at the level of the CECB for taking effective steps in this behalf.
