There are a plethora of illegal mobile towers all over the country
Ref: Only 6 out of over 500 mobile towers in Gurgaon are legal – RTI reply
Comment: In reply to undersigned RTI application, the learned SPIO of Gurgaon Municipal Corporation has admitted that only 2 out of 577 mobile towers are "legal".
Further, I was informed that there is no proposal to remove them in spite of written directions of Hon'ble Commissioner of MCG. There is a fee of Rs 2.50 lakh per tower per year payable to GMC which is being saved by these unscruplus tower owners by not fullfilling the conditions deliberately thus depriving public of a sum of Rs 50 Crore.
The matter is being taken to Hon'ble Punjab & Haryana HC.
Comment: MCG having found 500 illegal mobile towers till so but just 1 has been sealed. How long will it take others towers to be sealed? I just can’t understand why municipal corporations are not that efficiently working in many states. Please let know is there any study conducted regarding this municipal council. What are the recomendation made, if possibile, what ever details are available.
