Mobile operators should get approval from MoEF for towers


The Ministry of Telecommunications has proposed that cellphone operators will soon have to seek sanction from the Wildlife Division under the Ministry of Environment and Forests (MoEF) before installing their communication towers, in addition to the permission from the Defence and Aviation Ministries. The measure was suggested following reports that radiation from the towers could affect even pollination of flowers besides migration of birds, as mobile towers in India radiate more than as prescribed by the International Commission on Non-Ionizing Radiation Protection (ICNIRP).
