Noise Pollution is the major environmental nuisance and most underrated due to the fact that we can't see it, smell it or taste it. Noise Pollution occurs due to unwanted sound over a period of time which can affect one's quality of life causing major health hazards such as hearing impairment, increase in levels of stress, annoyance and insomnia, etc. To find out various contributing factors towards rise in the levels of Noise Pollution, an extensive study was carried out in Mumbai city including the various sources of noise pollution and receptors. The comparative study aims to find the impact of urbanization, industrialization and increase in traffic volume over the levels of noise pollution. The study recognizes individual characteristics such as built up area, tier levels of cities, road networks and vehicular traffic volume reflecting over the increasing levels of noise pollution in that particular city. Findings include surprising facts such as noise levels during non-working days are observed to be much higher when compared with the levels of working day. Also, noise levels during night time were found to be higher than day time on non-working days in Mumbai city. Based on the noise pollution scenario various recommendation are suggested to control the noise pollution in the city.
