In residential areas erection of mobile towers are not advisable.

Electromagnetic radiations emitted from the towers are debated all over the world. However, there is no conclusive study stating that radiation emitted by mobile phones affects health adversely. Medical research material is available on health-related effects of electromagnetic radiation emitted from antennae on telecommunication towers, yet no conclusive evidence of hazards to human health has been established for possible exposure levels from the cellular towers.

Modified currents and voltage generate oscillation of the electrical and magnetic field, which propagates in space. The electric and magnetic components oscillate at right angels to each other, these waves are termed as Electro Magnetic Radiations (EMRs). Mobile phone towers emit electro magnetic rays with a frequency of 1900 MHz. With this high frequency, they can easily pass through our bodies and concrete walls. Our immune system can be harmfully affected when these EMR rays pass through our body. Mobile phone towers’ radioactivity can thus affect every living thing in one square kilometer range.

Density ranges of this radioactivity are 17,100 - 72,000 micro watt per square metre. Mobile towers, installed on top of buildings can penetrate radio activity among those who live in the same buildings. Electromagnetic field of these towers attract Radon gas from atmosphere. EMR can cause memory loss, headache, allergy and skin diseases mostly affecting those who live nearby. Sperm-count in men is known to reduce with daily use of cell phone.
Local municipal authorities are responsiable for giving permission to mobile towers in residential areas.
