What are options in India for impact noise from upper floor in residential house
You may need to install acoustic panels on the ceiling.
Twin layers of False ceiling solution from Saintgobain will additionally reduce noise.
For the traffic noise you can get the Sound proof Fenesta windows installed.
Acoustic panels call also be added to the walls and they act as a decorative element as well.
This shall help you a lot else try gifting a carpet to the neighbours ;)

Hi Mr. Nitin,
I am working as a Technical Sales engineer in one of Indian leading Acoustic Company. Everyday I receive minimum three calls for the same problems which you stated here.There two types of Sound transfer First is through Air borne like person Voice, speaker, sound horn. Second is through Structures like person knocking the door, neighbour people jumping the floor, elevator noise, etc.
Yours problem comes under second type. This problem in ceiling concrete floor occurs due to lower steel usage and thickness of the concrete.
The exact solution for this problem is to install the acoustic underlayment GETZNER AFM 23 under the Flooring tiles, which is specially designed for this kind of issue. But, it should be done during the construction stage of the building only. It can not be done after construction.
If you use Acoustic panels and ceiling tiles, this products will reduce only the noise transferred though Air borne. So there is no solution reduction of this structural borne noise currently.
Please don't spend your precious money in Acoustic Ceiling tiles or Wall Panels.

Hi Mr Bala Vishnu Murugesan,
Thanks for your comment.
While respecting your competence - We have had very good success with the suggestions we made above.
Acoustic panels, glass wool panels, acoustic false ceiling from Saint Gobain/Armstrong are very effective after construction solutions for noise absorption.

Dear Mr. Nitin,
I agree with your comments given above.
These products are suitable only for Air borne Noise transfer. It's not recommended for Vibration absorption or structural noise transfer.
