HC notice to BCCI over alleged noise norms violation in IPL

Kapil Soni, an advocate, filed the petition in 2014 alleging that during the IPL matches held in 2013 at Mumbai’s Wankhede Stadium and Pune’s Subrata Roy Sahara Stadium, the noise pollution norms and regulations were violated, and hence legal action should be initiated against BCCI and MCA and heavy penalty should be imposed.

 A division bench of justices AS Oka and AA Sayed issued notice to BCCI and MCA, and posted the PIL for further hearing on September 16. According to the petition, “Loud speakers were being used and loud music was being played during the matches even after the prescribed time deadline and thus violated provisions of the Noise Pollution (Regulation and Control) Act. 

Legal action should be initiated against the BCCI and MCA and a cost of Rs 100 crore should be levied on BCCI,” the petition claimed.
