Kalyani Nagar: Residents of Kalyani Nagar area are irked with the continuous noise pollution caused by local restaurants and bars. Despite regulations that require these establishments to stop playing loud music after 10:30 pm, many are reportedly flouting the rules and continuing to create a disturbance even during the night.

According to the resident of Kalyani  Nagar who wished to remain anonymous, the restaurant in Kalyaninagar was recently found to be setting off fireworks in the late hours of the night. Although the residents tried to complain to the local police, they were told that they must lodge a physical complaint at the station. Frustrated with the lack of action, the resident stated that they have lodged several complaints in the past as well.

Sachin Agashe, another resident of Kalyani Nagar, spoke out about the ongoing issue, stating that the noise from restaurants and bars is a constant problem. “We have complained to the local police several times but now they ask us to complain to a higher department which will solve the issue,” he said.

Munir Vastani, another resident with similar concerns, added, “For the last couple of years we have been facing noise issues from restaurants and bars after 10:30 pm. Every Friday and Saturday night, the noise level is at its peak and continues till 5 am. We tried to complain but even after several attempts, the situation remains the same.”

Furthermore, residents have raised concerns about the operating hours of certain restaurants and bars which are permitted to remain open until 1:30 am but are allegedly continuing to operate well into the early hours of the morning.

Residents have also highlighted the issue of unauthorized restaurants operating in residential areas. The Pergola restaurant, which operates without necessary permissions in a residential building, has been a source of constant noise and disturbance for residents.

 “Loud music is played from 11:00 am in the morning till as late as 1:30 am in the morning. Also, the visitors to the restaurant disturb the peace of the area by sitting and talking loudly in the open area till late into the night, not allowing the residents of the building to sleep peacefully,” said a resident.

Despite numerous complaints, the situation remains unresolved. Residents are now urging the authorities to take action and put an end to the noise pollution caused by these establishments. They are calling for a crackdown on unauthorized restaurants and for stricter enforcement of rules and regulations governing operating hours and noise levels.
