 Share  ·    Comment   ·    print   ·  

A petition filed recently in the Delhi High Court seeking the removal of mobile phone towers from the vicinity of schools, colleges and residential localities has highlighted the lack of adequate regulatory mechanisms to deal with hazardous radiation. The writ petition, filed by Sriniwas Sharma, a resident of Pitampura, points out that the towers emit harmful radiation.

The High Court issued notices to the Union of India and the Delhi government on March 8 on the matter.
