The Delhi high court has expressed dissatisfaction with the decision of ministry of environment and forest, which has sets noise pollution standards for generators upto 2.5 kilowatts capacity only. This omits bigger generators which are used by commercial establishments. The division bench comprising of chief Justice Arijit Passayat and justice D K Jain asked the ministry to explain the omission. The court has also asked the ministry to file an affidavit by September 26, 2000 regarding a public interest litigation that seeks action against unauthorised use of generator sets in the city.
