MP HC directs authorities to remove mobile tower from residential area within 15 days


Jabalpur, Mar 13 (ILNS) The Jabalpur Bench of the Madhya Pradesh High Court recently disposed of a PIL with the direction that action should be taken within 15 days on the complaint of removing a mobile tower from a residential area.

The PIL, filed by Lalita Nagar Jan Kalyan Samiti, sought direction from the High Court to take action on their complaint against the installation of mobile tower by mobile companies in crowded localities, as the residents were experiencing sleep disorders, fatigue, headache, memory loss, depression, hearing problems, joint pains and skin diseases.

The Division Bench of Chief Justice Mohammad Rafiq and Justice Vijay Kumar Shukla, while considering the matter, ordered, “We deem it proper to dispose of the writ petition by granting liberty to the petitioner to approach the competent authority/Urban Local Body for raising his grievance regarding installation of tower. The said representation of the petitioner shall be considered and decided by the competent authority within a period of 15 days from the date of receipt of the objection/representation, in accordance with law.”

Counsel for the petitioner SP Mishra pointed out that municipal bodies have framed the rules called MP Nagar Palika (Installation of Temporary Tower/Structure for Cellular Mobile Phone Service) Rules, 2012 and under the rules, the mechanism for redressal of the grievance has been provided. The Counsel placed reliance on the order dated December 1, 2017 (Maya Devi Verma Vs State of MP and others), passed by a Single Bench of the MP High Court. ILNS/SNG/JR
