DoT sets deadline for tower radiation documents

Sunday 24 November 2013 | 23:16 CET | News
India's Department of Telecom (DoT) has set a deadline for mobile operators to submit documents related to the new telecom tower radiation norms. If operators fail to meet the 31 December deadline, they could be fined up to INR 50,000 per site for delays over thirty days, the Economic Times reports. In case of shared cell sites, supporting documents will have to be supplied by all operators sharing the site. The new tower radiation norms came into effect last year but operators have until the end of this year to comply.
