Bengaluru: Telecom tower industry body TAIPA has raised concerns over the mobile tower installation rule proposed by the Karnataka government, calling it a retrograde move.

“The policy being considered by the government (Karnataka) such as licensing requirement, exorbitant charges and restriction on location is contrary to the industry submissions and standpoint and are retrograde,” TAIPA Director General Tilak Raj Dua said in a letter to Karnataka Deputy Chief Minister G Parameshwara.

The draft guidelines on the installation of telecommunications infrastructure towers regulation propose a restriction on the location of mobile towers.

The Karnataka government has proposed to disallow erection of mobile towers within 100-metres distance from schools. hospital, buildings, religious buildings etc.

The draft proposes one-time mobile tower installation fee in the range of Rs 10,000-Rs 50,000 per tower based upon an area.

Tower and Infrastructure Providers Association (Taipa), whose members include Indus Towers, Bharti Infratel, American Tower Corporation, said there is an urgent need to address the issues raised by the telecom industry on the said draft policy as the policy being envisaged by the state government cannot be implemented if notified.
