To check the sound pollution in the city Nagpur Municipal Corporation has come up with the noble idea of Silence Zone. NMC has identified 531 locations as silence zone. These includes hospitals, court and schools. Area within 100 meter radius of these 531 locations will be declared as silence zone. Sound above 50 decibels between 6 AM to 10 PM and sound above 40 decibels between 10 PM to 6 AM at night will lead to violation of norms and hence lead to fine of Rs 1 Lac or 5 years imprisonment.
