Mumbai becomes India's noisiest city

Delhi may be the dirtiest city in terms of high air pollution but the dubious distinction of being the noisiest city goes to Mumbai which reported the maximum violation of safe noise levels for consistently longer periods during 2011-14.

Delhi, in fact, was at number four as Lucknow and Hyderabad turned out to be noisier than the capital which has an advantage of relatively higher green cover and road side plantations.

Though the most common source of noise pollution is motor vehicles, the other sources like generator sets, office machines, aircraft, industrial and construction activities too substantially contribute to increasing the noise level in the cities.
