Mobile Tower Radiations To Be Brought Down

The exposure limit of radio frequency fields (base station emissions) across the nation will be brought down to one-tenth of the existing level from September 1.
This comes in response to petitions in High Courts and the Supreme Court on fears of health hazards from mobile tower radiations. The issue of mobile tower radiations causing cancer has been a cause for concern to people across the country. In the past few months, members of civil society and resident welfare associations across the nation have been opposing the installation of new towers in their localities and questioning the continuance of the existing ones.
