  • ans 

    With respect to the pollution being caused by these illegal factories, you can file a written complaint in the State Pollution Control Board.

     

    One can even register a complaint with the police for noise pollution and therefore you have both the options available to you.
    And with respect to the factories being illegal, you can approach the Municipal authorities and file a written complaint. If no action is taken within 30 days, you can then file an RTI with the Municipal Authority.

     

    You can even file a civil suit for causing public nuisance against the said factory being run in the residential area.
