A special council will be set up to look into cell tower radiation violations in the city
BMC is planning to introduce its own set of norms for mobile network companies. This is in addition to the regulations which have been formulated at the Centre for mobile towers in residential buildings. Municipal Commissioner Sitaram Kunte on Monday said, "The Centre has formulated some technical norms for mobile network towers around the country. We are going to add our own norms for such towers set up in residential buildings in the city."
"If any tower has been set up illegally, without the consent of the housing society, we will take action against the companies, based on the Maharashtra Regional and Town Planning (MRTP) Act and other laws," he added.
On Friday, the civic administration said a special council would be set up to look into cell tower radiation violations. "There are 3,600 towers in Mumbai, of which 1,800 have been found to be illegal. We have initiated action against 250 towers. However, some of these cases are pending in court, which has held us back from taking proper punitive action," said Kunte.
