The Bombay High Court has issued notice to the BCCI and the Maharashtra Cricket Association as noise pollution gets increased during the Indian Premier League matches.
In 2013, during the IPL matches which was held in Mumbai’s Wankhede Stadium and Pune’s Subrata Roy Sahara Stadium, the noise pollution norms and regulations were infringed.
In 2014, the plea has been filed by advocate Kapil Soni.
The legal action will be taken against BCCI and MCA. Moreover, heavy penalty have been enforced.
The notice was issued by Justice A S Oka and Justice A A Sayed to BCCI and MCA. Moreover, the hearing of the case will be announced on September 16.
“Loud speakers were being used and loud music was being played during the matches, even after the prescribed deadline, and thus, violating provisions of the Noise Pollution (Regulation and Control) Act. Legal action should be initiated against BCCI and MCA and a cost of Rs 100 crore should be levied on BCCI,” the case claimed.
