Awaaz foundation has led the anti-pollution campaign all over India for a decade. Awaaz foundation was founded on 21 February 2006 by Sumaira Abdulali. The foundation has advocated against noise pollution from various sources and has conducted campaigns to create awareness of adverse health effects from noise pollution.
Abdulali measured noise from old rake train between Bandra and CST station and a new rake train between CST and Thane station. The announcements in the new rake trains, public interest messages and station announcements at very high decibel levels bother the commuters.
