‘Allow us to operate in residential areas’

Moblie tower operators on Friday sought permission to construct towers in residential areas. They also wanted a single tower for each operator against the UT Administration's proposal directing three operators to share one tower. In a meeting regarding the Draft Mobile Tower Policy held under the chairmanship of finance secretary on Friday, the mobile tower operators also sought a relaxation on obtaining the mandatory radiation certificate from the specific institution.

The UT Administration has formulated a Draft Mobile Tower Policy for Chandigarh and has uploaded it on the official site, www.chandigarh.nic.in. Before the finalisation of this policy, the Administration had invited public objections/ suggestions, if any, to be submitted to the office of the Senior Town Planner, Department of Urban Planning, Chandigarh Administration on his e-mail id, stputchd@gmail.com.

In the above policy, the security and structural safety aspect of the buildings has been handled and the provision of installation of micro cell based stations can be considered on residential buildings in the areas/ sectors wherein there are only few non-residential buildings to provide seamless uninterrupted mobile services. Further the condition of sharing has also been imposed.
