Mobile Telecom Tower installation is going on in Residential Zone of DDA Flats, Pocket-4 Mayur Vihar Ph-1, New Delhi 110091. It’s a Park with Kids play area Near Flat No 143 & 157 and Sadbhavana Apartment Gate which is a residential complex of DDA Flats surrounded with more than 5000 residents including Kids & Senior citizen. Installation of mobile tower is not as per the norms of DoT. This can be verified with the distance of tower from the backyard of flat no 143A Pocket 4 MV 1

01. This Telecom Tower may create radiation which is very harmful for humans especially for kids and senior citizen.

02. Its being erected in Park Kids Play area where any kid may also get electrocuted with its electrical equipments.

03. There are 3 Schools within 100 Meter radius including Higher Secondary schools

04. Most of the society residents are not agree in the erection of this tower.

05. There is sufficient commercial compound such as Market or Metro Station available outside this DDA Flats complex where these telecom towers may be placed.

According to Hindustan Times, "The World Health Organisation's International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) says radiation from cellphone handsets and towers is "possibly carcinogenic to humans" and may cause glioma, a type of brain cancer. Towers are more dangerous than handsets because they emit greater-intensity radiation 24X7"

Hence requesting you to please do needful to stop this Tower Erecting work immediately.

When DDA allotted us flats – they were allotted with a “Right to live”. We were sold flats with assurance that our parks will remain as parks and will not be used for any commercial purpose. By allowing the commercial use of our parks DDA is breaching the contract which it made with us when it sold these flats to us. Children playing in DDA parks and families living here have right to live and not die of deadly diseases. To think of installing a mobile tower would be a blatant infringement of public space. This park is in a residential hub with children of all age groups playing in it every day. We as residents are shocked as DDA even thinking of permitting installation of Mobile Towers in a public park and thus denying the children their basic right to play and it’s a clear case of violation of their Basic Human Rights.

Infringement of Public Place – DDA Parks are meant for use by residents and not to be taken over by the staff of M/s   to either stay in the park or visit frequently for maintenance which will lead to security problem in the colony.

Clearance By National Green Tribunal -  As per the ruling of National Green Tribunal parks are meant for use by residents and to keep the environment clean and safe. Allotment of DDA Children’s Park land to M/s TowerVision India Private Ltd is a commercial activity and a big health hazard. As residents, we are within our rights to demand that any infrastructural requirements be balanced against health hazards and environmental concerns and in  this case the risks are of far greater magnitude than the demands of infrastructural development. Any change in DDA parks should be aimed at enhancement of quality of life of residents. 

We will never permit crony capitalism of mobile tower companies to spread cancer in our colony. Mobile towers have become major causes of cancer; which is caused by the radiation spread by them.

Mobile Tower Radiations are causing Cancer.   A number of reports have indicated that radiations being emitted from mobile Towers are causing Cancer of all types including Brain Cancer. We do not want their children and families to die of this deadly disease which will drain them financially, mentally and psychologically. Residents cannot be living under constant fear of Radiations being emitted by Mobile Tower.

Noise Pollution – Mobile Towers in DDA Park will have generator and other infrastructure at the base of tower. Running of generator will cause noise pollution for the residents staying very close to mobile towers.

We the residents wish to lodge a vehement and unanimous protest against the proposed installation of mobile tower in DDA Park of Pocket 4 near Sadbhavana gate.

In view of the above it is submitted that installation of mobile tower in inside residential area of Pocket 4 is big health hazard and a grossly commercial endeavour which should be stopped immediately.
