Noise Pollution: Past, Present and Future

Main Article Content

Anupam Rajak


The purpose of the present paper was to review the literature to ''effects on environment and people of noise pollution''. Classroom noise is related to stress reactions among high school children. So, noise is increasingly day by day. Noise is pervasive in during everyday life. Noise is an prominent feature of the environment. Noise means "unwanted sound". Railway noise exposure to effects on blood pressure on the cohort population. Exposure to air craft and road traffic noise are associated with physiological symptoms. Sound is a physical phenomenon that propagate in all directions from source. Sound cannot propagate with space. Noise pollution also cause depression, memory loss, and panic attacks.
