A tower can be erected only with such construction permission for the local authority. The mobile towers as per GOI standards are found to be free from all health hazards and such fears are unfounded as per research.

"Harmful" is your perception only and there is no scientific proof to back it up. Further, for erecting a Cell Tower the pre-condition is the obtention of permission from various authorities concerned including the Municipality. Therefore, your contention that it is an illegal mobile tower shall be justified if such a tower is erected without any permission from the authorities concerned but not merely because you think that it is harmful.
