Bombay High Court stays the decision on DJ ban

Bombay High Court had placed a ban on the use of DJs during festivals. The ban was implemented this year during Ganesh Chaturthi and since then, the court has forbidden the use of DJs in public places. However, recently a petition was filed in the court to uplift the ban and Bombay HC turned down the petition. Therefore, the ban on DJs will stay intact and it is still forbidden to use DJs at public places.  

Professional Audio and Lighting Association (PALA) had filed a petition in the court to lift the ban on the use of DJs who would function by bearing the noise pollution norms in mind. However, the court rejected the petition straightaway.

The bench of Judges Shantanu Kemkar and K.K. Sonawane headed the hearing and meanwhile, the state government strongly opposed the demands of the petitioners stating that there is no way that DJs can be allowed to be played publicly.

Presenting their side, the state government said that 75 per cent of cases of noise pollution norms’ violation have been filed against the DJs. Therefore, the state government presented its stand in front the bench demanding to not lift the ban.
