India defines night to curb noise –

Indian policy-makers have prepared what they call a road map aimed at controlling pervasive noise.

And one of the latest steps they have taken is to give comfort to citizens at bedtime.

They have defined night in legal terms.

“The nighttime has been defined (10 p.m. to 6 a.m.) and restrictions have been imposed on the use of horns, sound-emitting construction equipments and bursting of firecrackers during nighttime,” the federal environment ministry said.

An interesting initiative being undertaken in India. I wonder where?
