Centre asks states to allow mobile towers on govt buildings

News:

  • The central government has written to chief ministers of all states to allow mobile towers on government buildings within their jurisdiction to check the problem of ‘call drop’ plaguing mobile communication networks.
  • Certain protests against construction of mobile towers in residential areas at many places citing harmful effects of radiation emanated by them to human beings, animals and birds, but Communication and IT minister Prasad said, “Such campaigns against mobile phone towers are basically wrong and WHO has conducted deep study on the issue and has declared that the notion of radiation harm by mobile towers is wrong.”
  • Prasad also asserted that despite the government initiative, private telecom companies also were needed to reinforce their systems and optimise them to check call drop.
