Loudspeakers/DJs disrupting your board prep in Lucknow? Now call 112 & register a complaint!

Are the loud noises around you not letting you study? Call Emergency service 112 and register your complaint

February and March are months that see a lot of events in the city. From weddings to parties and even cultural celebrations, you can expect the two months to be quite happening and over the top. Which also means, you can never be sure of when a loudspeaker will be turned on! Now this is a huge problem because February and March are also the months during which students take their board examinations. However, UP Police's new service lets you tackle this and how!

To make sure that the events and their bruhahaha does not make it hard for students to concentrate on their studies, UP Police is launching a campaign to crackdown noise pollution through the emergency service 112.

What's the update?

In a bid to ensure that students can study in peace and nothing disrupts their education during the crucial board examinations, UP Police has launched a major crackdown on noise pollution. The emergency service of the UP police is now open to register complaints against noise pollution. If any parent or student finds that the noise in their locality is crossing normal thresholds and not letting them concentrate on their studies, they can call 112 and a Police Response Vehicle (PRV) will be sent to make sure that the noise is dealt with.

The best part about the whole affair is that if a complainant expresses their desire to remain anonymous, their identity will not be disclosed to the complainee! This makes it easier for complainants to express their grievance without any hesitation. Apart from calling the emergency 112 numbers you can also register your complaint on the twitter handle or other social media handles of Call 112.

Speaking on the whole affair, DGP UP Police- Hitesh Chandra Awasthi said, "This campaign aims to promote a better lifestyle sans pollution. We hope that during the duration of the campaign, enough awareness has been spread amongst the public. Though, we will keep taking action against those who spread noise pollution.

With the campaign, UP Police aims to spread awareness on the topic of noise pollution and ensure that people realise the benefits of a quieter and peaceful celebration, without disturbing the lives of others.

UP Police has also ensured that all personnel involved in the process of registering complaints and responding to them, have receive special training to deal with sensitive situations. They've also clarified that the people perpetrating noise pollution will be given a warning and if they comply, no further action will be taken against them. If not, they'll have to face an investigation. This sounds like quite a move and it surely will give a way out to those, who find themselves being affected with the issue.
