dear,

As far as the legality of the mobile tower is concerned, you can even ask under RTI from the Municipal Corporation of your city or the DC Office about the permission given by them to the Mobile Company.

the following published in Mid-day may serve your purpose :

Policy to keep a check on mobile towers, soon

By: Ravikiran Deshmukh Date: 2011-07-31 Place: Mumbai

 

 

 

Following concerns over radiation risk posed by cellphone towers, Urban Development Dept drafts policy that lays down strict norms to be followed by telcos

 

After a prolonged public debate, the state policy for erecting mobile phone towers is ready and it comes with stringent guidelines. It will be finalised in six weeks by the Urban Development Department of Maharashtra (UDD).

 

The policy was finalised on July 26 and will be open for suggestions from the public and citizens' groups.

According to the policy guidelines for setting of base stations, cellular sites, and installation of equipment for telecommunication network in the state, no tower will be installed on an unauthorised structure. Existing towers too, will fall under the scrutiny of the UDD.

 

The policy comes close on the heels of a notice sent by BCJ Hospital and Asha Parekh Research Centre, based in Santacruz to the neighbouring Ratna Deep Cooperative Housing Society (CHS), asking residents to remove the cell towers on its rooftop. (Towering Trouble for Hospital, MiD DAY, July 27, 2011).

 

The centre's Department of Telecommunications (DoT) had submitted a report to the state health department and the UDD on radiation risks of cellphone towers on July 18, 2011.

 

What the draft lays down

Such installations will cover towers, single pole antennae, and even microwave antenna, telecom transceiver machinery, wires, cables, power supply equipment such as generator sets, and cabins or cupboards for housing such constructions. Telecom companies will need to apply to the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) through an architect registered with the Council of Architecture before installing such towers.

 

An agreement copy signed by the property owner, lessee, and occupants of the society will be necessary. A structural safety and stability certificate of the tower from a licensed structural engineer has been made mandatory and design parameters of installation will have to be submitted as well. Along with this, a certificate from the Maharashtra Pollution Control Board, confirming compliance with the noise level and smoke level norms for power-generating sets is another prerequisite.

 

Telecom operators have also been directed to file fresh structural stability certificates every three years.

 

Unauthorised and structurally unsafe buildings are not allowed to install cell sites or base stations.

 

The BMC is required to respond to the application within two months. In the event of no response, the permission will be deemed to have been granted, as per Section 45 of the Maharashtra Regional Town Planning Act, 1966.

 

Currently antennae and structures are built on terraces by obtaining permissions from the BMC's Building Proposal Department.

 

Existing sites under the scanner

Existing towers that do not conform to the norms laid down by the policy would be removed within two years. The operation of the mobile tower itself however, shall be discontinued within a day from the receipt of a notice to that effect.

 

Copies of the policy have been forwarded to Telephone Regulatory Authority Of India (TRAI), Bhabha Atomic Research Centre, and the Tata Memorial Hospital for suggestions.

 

Concerned with the progressively growing number of such antennae accompanied by the increasing subscriber base of cellphone operators, the DoT had appointed a committee of ministers to look into the issue. At last count, there are around 4,000 cell towers across the city, transmitting radio frequencies round the clock.

 

Otherwise you may file an RTI Application to PIO , o/o Urban Development Department of Maharashtra for certified copy of the policy if it has come into existence .

Thanks for the prompt response..you response is quite helpful..to narrate further about my issue... the tower is within range of 6 meters from my bedroom window. Also it seems cellular tower operator has all the legal docs including BMC permission and permission from our society..So in this kind of scenario what is my right as individual..how can stop its functioning since its very close to my window. What action do I take and what should be ideal distance between cellular tower and residential building?..Please advise. Thanks.

Dear Sir,

I am a resident of Varanasi city in Uttar Pradesh. Next to my house a TATA DOCOMO mobile tower has been installed with a high-power generator to feed electricity supply which is posing air and noise pollution. We are greatly tortured on this account and this is to add that the said mobile company has installed the tower at rooftop of next-to-door building without seeking the permission of the local authority. Please guide me the way I should move against it and please also help me where to post the the RTI to seek certain vital information from the INDICOM company. Thanking you & with regards...

      Hello all,
       
      Daily i receive many calls say - ateast 5 per day, regarding credit card offerings and loans from call centres of banks - HDFC, Standard chartered, HSBC, ICICI, etc.
      1) How do they get my personal mobile number? I am using an airtel connection.
      2) Can anybody pass on my number without my knowledge for business purposes? Is this punishable?
      3) What should one do to avoid his/her number getting passed to such centres?
       
      I am sure this is happening to almost all mobile users. Filing an RTI query can help in any of the above questions? Any information on this issue is welcomed.
