The noise of car engines and horns may be the most annoying sound you’ve heard in your life, but it’s not necessarily the worst thing to have to deal with in India.
Here are six ways to reduce noise pollution in your neighbourhood.1.
Take the stairs When you get home from work, take the stairs.
This is because people in India tend to walk up the stairs as they are more likely to fall asleep and get injured.
Even when they do fall asleep, people in Delhi and Mumbai are prone to noise pollution, and a study by the International Institute of Occupational Safety and Health (IISSH) found that in areas with the most noise pollution the noise is more likely be the loudest in a residential area.2.
Get rid of the noise floor2.
Take a break and chill The second most annoying noise in India is the noise from the cars and buses, which can disturb sleepers.
A study by IISSH found that people in the capital, Delhi, and Mumbai were more likely than others to fall sleep when they were at the noisy bus stops and on the bus route.3.
Go for a walk outdoorsWhen you walk outdoors, take a walk on a flat, green space that is less noisy.
In cities such as Mumbai, Delhi and Delhi-NCR, these are often areas with a large number of people walking around.4.
Stop listening to musicWhen you listen to music, you should avoid it if possible.
Noise pollution can cause people to sleep more and cause them to lose weight.
A new study by researchers at the University of California, Berkeley found that when people listened to music while they were eating and drinking they lost weight.5.
Get your noise floor fixedIf you have a noise floor in your house, make it louder.
It’s a good idea to install an alarm system if you have one and to remove any noise flooring from your home if you don’t have one.6.
Take your noise out by building1.
Create a noise barrier2.
Build a noise-absorbing wall3.
Build an acoustic barrier4.
Install a noise door5.
Build noise-removal barriers6.
Create an electric barrierIf you live in a building with an acoustic floor, you can build an electric noise barrier.
The barrier can be a metal pole or a wood plank that is connected to a voltage generator.
The generator can then provide an electric current and stop the sound from escaping.7.
Make noise curtains1.

Install an acoustic wall3,4.
Create noise curtains5,6.
Install noise-reinforcement curtains7.
Create audible noise curtainsThe idea behind acoustic walls is to keep noise outside and to keep people from sleeping on floors.
The barriers are designed to reduce the noise and to improve noise-disruption.
If you’re going to build an acoustic sound barrier, make sure that it is designed with an internal power source, preferably a battery, and that it can be plugged in when you need it.8.
Take steps to limit noise sources1.
Limit the amount of noise2.
Make it noisy 3.
Set the noise level to avoid the noise4.
Make sure it doesn’t disturb your neighbours5.
Reduce the amount or volume of noise on your propertyThe second most important way to reduce noisy noise in your neighborhood is to limit the amount and the intensity of noise you hear.
This means limiting the amount that is being emitted in the air, which means not using outdoor loudspeakers, which are often louder than indoor ones.
If your home has an outdoor noise-control system, such as a noise shield, you might want to consider making sure that there are no loud noise sources.
You can also limit the noise levels that you hear from a number of sources, such in the car or a phone call.
These limits can be set by you, or by your neighbours.
A noise shield is a device that is designed to block the sound coming from a noise source.
The sound barrier will prevent the noise coming out of the sound source, and you will not hear it from inside your home.
A noise-reduction plan can help you reduce noise levels, but you need to have a plan that is consistent and that will work for all your neighbours and all of your households.
