Bengaluru: The High Court on Friday ordered issue of notices to the State government on a public interest litigation (PIL) petition seeking a direction to authorities to introduce a system of constant monitoring of vehicle noise and issuance of noise-level under control certificates for motor vehicles on the lines of emission level certificates.
A Division Bench comprising Chief Justice Subhro Kamal Mukherjee and Justice Budihal R B passed the order on the petition filed by Mohan Krishna H, a resident of Hessarghatta main road.

The petitioner has claimed that there is no mechanism to regularly measure the noise caused by a vehicle even though the law has prescribed maximum noise levels for different categories of vehicles as well as different types of horns.
