Government to frame rules for mobile towers
The government is collecting feedback from concerned departments for framing comprehensive rules and regulations for installation of mobile
towers by cellphone service providers in the state, CM Prithviraj Chavan
stated in a written reply to the state assembly on Tuesday.
‘‘The rules will be finalized soon,’’ Chavan stated in response to the query
raised several members in the House.
A multi-member committee, set up on March 20 this year, under the
additional secretary (health) to study the effects of the electromagnetic rays
emanating from cellphone towers, had recommended various measures
including framing of rules and regulation for mobile towers. The committee
furnished its report to the government on August 6.
