Dear All,

An Inter-ministerial committee was constituted to examine the effect of EMF radiation on human health. A soft copy of the report (Inter Ministerial Committee Report on EMF Radiation) is placed on the DOT website. They have asked for feedback by 25.02.2011. The above can be seen at:

You can see the full report at

They have mentioned several health hazards due to radiation and have recommended to use 1/10th of the existing radiation norms, pl see Section 5.7, page 33, which will be 0.92W/m^2 for GSM1800. However, Bio-initiative report has recommended 1000 microwatt/m^2=0.001W/m^2,

pl see Section 5.4, page 32.

I have written several reports and given presentations, these can be found by using Google search words as "Girish Kumar Cell tower Radiation". Based on our study, they should adopt 0.1 W/sq.meter immediately and which should be reduced further to 0.01 W/sq.meter in 1 to 2 years to give sufficient time for operators for smooth network operations.

Please spare time to go through it and educate people and write to the above concerned people at DOT to adopt safer radiation norms.

With regards.
