SoBo drive against cellphone towers


Mumbai: South Mumbai residents have come together to form a group—Indians for Safe Environment (IFSE)—to fight against the health hazards from electro-magnetic field radiations from mobile phone towers. The group is supported by the Carmichael Road Citizens' Committee, Pedder Road Residents' Association and Altamont Road Area Citizens' Committee. Over 1,000 signatures have been collected and a representation made to Milind Deora, minister of state for communications and IT, guardian minister of Mumbai Jayant Patil, and BMC chief Sitaram Kunte. 
    "We are fighting against the haphazard installation of mobile towers. We have made our representation to the department of telecom and requested
them to look into the matter," said Dilnar Chichgar, a Carmichael Road resident. 
    On Friday, the IFSE organized a talk by Prof Girish Kumar of IIT-Bombay and Dr Anand Gokani of Bombay Hospital on the perils of cellphone towers. The electromagnetic frequency radiation levels around Pedder Road, Carmichael Road and Malabar Hill is recorded to be "dangerously high".
