A joint initiative has been launched with Department of Telecommunication, Ministry of Communication & Information Technology in campaign mode to study the possible impact of EMF radiation exposure from mobile towers and handsets. On life Humans, Living Organism, Flora & Fauna & Environment and related R&D initiatives on next generation technologies for environmentally benign solution for wireless and mobile communication.
A Committee of experts from medical, engineering institutes and various government departments was constituted for assessment and project evaluation. Under the programme, India specific studies aimed at generating scientifically credible data and evidence are supported. These studies should focus on hazard risk aspects of radiation taking into account population density; health risk quantification on human and other ecosystems. Scientific investigations are required to derive country specific norms and R&D solutions for mitigating the hazard potentials and health risks through innovations.
A call will be made for the submission of next batch of new proposals under the Cell Tower Radiation programme at our website.
