Subject: Request for a ‘Cell phone/Mobile phone tower’ in Patrame village, Belthangady taluk, D.K. District. Karnataka.

Patrame is a village in Belthangady taluk of D.K. district, Karnataka with an average population of about 5000. The village is about 8kms from the famous ‘Sri kshetra Dharmastala’ and about 9kms from Kokkada village on the Dharmasthala-Kukke subrahmanya road.
As the village does not have a cell phone tower (of any network provider), we villagers are finding it difficult to connect efficiently to the outer world in this era of information technology. Often we feel deprived of some of our basic rights because of this. In the era of 4G neither do we have adequate land phone connectivity nor broadband facility. The officials at the taluk telephone exchange cite the inadequacy of telephone wires for new connection since ages. The only means of communication with the outer world is the BSNL tarang ‘WLL’ phone which only works at it’s ‘WILL’. Even with an external antenna the signal strength is very low and the internet speed is about 3-4kbps, by which browsing even the low bandwidth sites is hardly possible.
Installing a cell phone tower could be a solution to all the above mentioned problems and would be advantageous/profitable for BSNL as well, as there are no other mobile operators in the village. Villages are many times quoted as the backbone of India.” Empowerment of villages is the empowerment of India” they say.
On behalf of all villagers I request BSNL to take action in this regard at the earliest and connect Patrame village to the outer world by installing a cell phone tower in our village.
