Jalpaiguri – 735121

Subject: Concerns Regarding the Disturbances Caused by Loudspeaker

Dear Editor,

I hope this letter finds you well. I wanted to express my concern about the loud noises from speakers in our community. The constant disturbances affect everyone’s peace, especially the elderly and students. Could there be rules for using speakers, like specific times and lower volumes? It would make our neighborhood much more pleasant. I believe many residents share this concern, and addressing this issue could greatly improve our quality of life.

Thank you for your attention to this matter.

Your faithfully,
Rekha Das
