Send a legal notice through a lawyer and file money recovery suit in consumer courts.

Supreme Court in March of 2017 directed BSNL to deactivate one of its cell phone towers, located in a residential area in Gwalior since 2003, on the suspicion by a petitioner that it might have caused the cancer of a resident, working in its vicinity.

While, it has been recognized by several courts across the globe that cell phone towers have the potential of harming human life by the radiations emitted by it, this does not necessarily mean that the everyone will get a relief. In your case, since Aircel has already shut down its services, then you might contact the local authorities such as the civic bodies, for the removal of the tower from your property or you can go forward and file a petition or a civil suit.

You can also contact Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) enumerating your grievances and the problems that the tower is causing to you and the general public at large.

Hope this answers your question!

The recent issued reguations by the Department of Telecommunication declares that every state must adhere to the authority of Telecom Enforcement and Resource Monitoring TERM and their approval.

citizen activists, with or without help from state agencies or civic bodies, can no longer unilaterally shift, remove or seal a cell phone tower. They must first approach a [TERM] cell for clearance.

Further, a Letter of Demand can be sent to the client company who built the tower in your property regarding the default money per the agreement.
