including Borivali, Kandivali and Malad were found to be the worst hit by noise pollution.
The foundation, led by activist Sumaira Abdulali, has been upholding the anti-noise campaign since 2002.
"The noise level in these areas has gone up since the festivity commenced and we feel it will continue to rise till Dussera," said Abdulali.
She claimed that several Garba mandals and event organisers are violating civic rules by playing loud music beyond the deadline and even in close vicinity to hospitals and residential complexes.
As per the foundation, the decibel mark has crossed the 100-mark in these areas, which gets added up by rampant construction works and traffic.
"Be it festivities or regular vehicular commotion, noise pollution has made these areas unfit for children, elderly and patients. The civic body must monitor them stringently," she appealed.
Following the western suburbs are the stretches of the eastern suburbs including Ghatkopar, Vikhroli, Vidyavihar and Mulund.
The survey found out that the decibel mark of 80 is also breached regularly in these areas during the times of festivals.
