Articles From Rajesh Chopra...

Instead of writing technical details about radiation that emits from cell-towers which everyone knows. I think itís about time we talk about how this menace can be solved and thatís what my article is all about.
Telecom Companies, NGOís and everyone associated with this sector know that cell tower radiation is day-by-day becoming a trouble but still all are overlooking this crisis. The only motivation behind overlooking is Money.
The riches game gets initiated right from the start wherever cell-towers are installed. Telecom companyís employees take bribe in advance before installation of tower from the owner of the property in form of six-month rent, that companies are supposed to pay to the owner. Whoever installs cell-tower on their property they instantly starts earning 20 to 25 thousand Rupees every month. Companies are constantly increasing their network and introducing new plans to the market and selling them. Government agencies and NGOís are being showered with Money to keep their eyes closed and in return these cell towers are harming general publicís health.
Today we all know that cell towers radiation is messing up our health, We should start thinking from now what effect will this have on our future generation, In what all ways will they be deformed and we should start intriguing initiatives accordingly. All the agencies that are issuing reports which states zero danger from these towers are carrying on research from funds provided by these telecom giants, thus these agencies are not to be trusted at all.
Itís about time that we comprehend that Government agencies and NGOís wonít be doing anything about this hazard, thatís why itís high time, we public should take this grave matter in our hands. It is important to make this issue so huge that government is left with no option.
Its governmentís fault for spoiling these telecom giants and now these companies are leaving no stone unturned when it comes to playing with Law. Now they are not even bothered about law when it comes to installing these killer towers.
These days I have seen at many places A buildingís roof has up to two or three towers on first floor and these towers in some cases are directly facing second floor of adjoining building like at Suvidha Kunj, Pitampura, Delhi, where humans live. Thus companies showing no regard for Human life whatsoever. Isnít this making fun of the law formed for public? Today it is very easy to see this kind of installation in many places.
All cell towers should be removed from residential areas and placed where they donít harm and are on proper height and if govt. fails to do this soon.
We public should take
the matter in our own hands.

Dear Mr. Chopra,
I am currently living on Altamount Road in Mumbai, my apartment is opposite Mr. Mukesh Ambani's new residence. The building in front of us has no less that three towers and numerous smaller vertical panels which i am assuming are ancillaries to the main towers. due to the height of the building in front, these are directly in line with my living room and bedroom windows and as a result has me seriously concerned as i have two small children (1 year and 3 years ) at home. it is my sincere request for you to guide me on the appropriate course of action you advise i take in order to ensure a healthier living environment. The members of my society and the members of the neighboring buildings have objected to the same as well and we all share a common concern about the same and are seeking correct legal methods to eradicate this nuisance.
Seeing your in-depth study and expertise in the field, i found it prudent to get in touch with you. If there is someone else you suggest i get in touch with in mumbai then do let me know. meanwhile i shall collect photographs of the same and have them sent across to you.
Hoping to hear from you soon.

Dear Mr Chopra,
I live in the suburb of JVPD in Mumbai, on the top floor of a 7 storey building. The builder has installed a cell phone tower on the terrace without any
residents' consent. We had a get together on the terrace in Feb 2011, when we all noticed it. Ever since I have been uncomfortable about it, contemplating how
to protest. Our agreement fine print says that he does not need any consent for the same, so we all kept quiet. He also lives on the same floor.
Now everyone in the bldg has got together, and are going to protest.I came across your article on the web while looking for helpful articles.
Could you shed some light?

I am living in USA and my parent and uncle are resident of Jaipur, Rajasthan. Recently I have been reading a lot about the hazards caused by cell phone towers and I have been following your articles regarding this issue. Its very important to create a mass awareness because people while giving their home terraces for erecting cell phone towers think only about the money. Actually people don't know the real danger.
There is one tower on the terrace of neighborhood building. In recent months we have experience a lot of health related problem around us.
I am really afraid for my family health.
On same note .. I would like to get in touch with you either with emails or really appreciate if you can provide me your contact details, so that i can call you .
I want to bring to your kind notice that there is a heavy mobile tower being installed in the residential area of D.D.A. Flats Kalkaji, New Delhi-110019. The address of the House is J-3/103 D.D.A. Flats, Kalkaji, New Delhi-110019. The owner of the house has not taken any permission from the association of the colony for the installation of the mobile tower on his roof top.
Sir, as you are aware that the dangerous radiations that are being emitted from these mobile towers are not good for small children and as well as for other adult people also.The particular area where the mobile tower is installed is a very densely populated area with a number of small children between the 1 to 9 months. The association has asked the landowner a number of time to remove the tower but he never listens to anybody.
Sir, it is my humble request to you to please get this deadly tower removed as early as possible so that people are not exposed to the deadly radiations that act as slow poison on the human body especially on the children and the pregnant women. If no action is taken against the landlord then the poeple of the association shall be forced to move to the court. Expecting a favourable response from your side.
Thanking You Yours Faithfully

Pls suggest the name of device through whom I can check the cell phone tower ration. where it is easily available ?
Dear Mr. Rajesh,
I am a resident of Bandra, Mumbai. Recently I have been reading a lot about the hazards caused by cell phone towers and I have been following your articles regarding this issue. Its very important to create a mass awareness because people while giving their building terraces for erecting cell phone towers think only about the money. Actually people don't know the real dangers.
There is one Reliance tower on the terrace of my parents' building which is 7 storey. I have stopped taking my 3 yr old son to my parents place because of that tower. But everyone says there are so many kids staying in the same vicinity and they are hale & hearty so don't worry. Then, there is a network of towers over our office building, don't feel like going to the office. I have also read that there is some rule of no cell tower over schools and hospitals, but then one can see a lot of these towers just next to the school/hospital building.
I really wish to work and contribute towards the awareness regarding this problem, primarily for my son's safer future. Would request you to guide me regarding the authority, if any, to measure the levels of cell phone radiations. Also request you to let me know whether Govt. of India has any regulations regarding this.
Awaiting your reply.

Dear Mr Chopra,
I require your assistance with regard to removal of Mobile towers in our society. We are in Mumbai. We are presently conducting a signature campaign for the removal of a mobile tower that was installed on a building within our society recently. The members of that building were unaware of the health hazards and agreed to the installation. However, others in the society were not informed and there are buildings very close to the mobile towers who are now concerned about their health.
The campaign has been initiated by only 3 women and the whole committee is against us. They feel that the signature campaign will not serve any purpose as the contract was signed for 5 years and for 50 lakhs.
I need your help so that we can fight the case and ask the mobile company to withdraw their contract and take their tower elsewhere. Where will the society get 50lakhs to pay for failing to keep up to the contract.? Please advise on how to go about it.
Also, Are there any guidelines set for installations of the tower. in Mumbai? as ours is a residential area.?
I read your article on the above-mentioned topic. What prompted me to research on the matter was the fact that a mobile network in my country approached my parents with a proposition to build a cell tower in our back yard for a contracted period of 15 years and pay monthly rent to us of about US$400. Because, I have read your article as well as others on the matter, I will advice my parents not take up the propsition. A prolonged haealth life is worht much more than such money!!
I am Sangeet Rajoria, living in Jaipur, Rajasthan. Sir, I am planning to buy a flat in an apartment, but on the top of the building, there is a cell phone tower. Building is of 8 floors and the flat which I choose, is on 1st floor. ir, living in this flat will be injureous for health? I investigated on internet and I came to know that 300 meters distance is safe. but this flat is below the tower, and the builder said that this will not affect, because the rays of tower goes horizontal, So, we will not get in touch directly.
Sir Please guide me. Sangeet Rajoria
Your articles on LiveIndia. com regarding the cell phone tower hazards was very impressive and an eye opener.I need your advice on this issue, as I live next to a neighbour who installed an Airtel tower. Now today, I see TATA Docomo erecting tower on the other side of my house, now we may be eventualy sandwiched between two towers within a gap of 100 feet. And having read your article we do not want to take any chances. Also recently we had lightning strikes just 20 feet from the tower , we are also worried if this may be due to cell towers.I'am considering raising a case or draw media awareness to avoid the second tower from being erected.
Kindly let me know If I can discuss this with you over phone or in person if you happen to be in chennai.
My name is Gokul - Please consider this an SOS.I eagerly look forward to hear from you at the earliest.
Thanks and Regards Gokul
Dear Rajesh sir,
I am staying in the first floor of a rented house. There is a Hutch tower over the terrace. I have heard that the radiation from the tower won't effect the residents of the building over which the tower is installed, because the rays of the tower goes horizontal,so we will not get in touch directly and due to the absorption of radiation by concrete structure. I have 3 years old daughter. Kindly confirm what I heard is correct or not. If it is incorrect, please guide me what I have to do.

Sir, I have read your views on cell phone towers on liveindia.com. In my Group Housing society in sector-62, Noida, management has recently done a secret pact
with airtel for installation of cell phone towers on roff of one building (7th floor) which is directly facing another building. They are not listening to any protest and citing court judgements to justify their decision. The society is likely to earn Rs 40000 per month..I would request you to guide how the management can be stopped. Are Group housing societies legally allowed to earn revenue in such a way.
Thanks Vivek Gupta
Dear Rajesh, i am staying in a rented house and its very close to hutch tower. whether these cell phone towers are really very dangerous for haelth or not what should we do . i am really confused and would like to know what should be actually done for this towers because i am not getting any authentic information from anywhere and we are planing to vacate from there.please guide me what we have to do.-- Thanks&Regards.M.srinivasulu
Your website covers all kinds of topics well and truly informed.
This is about the cell tower radiation effect topic which was quite interesting. Personally I have also observed these towers sprouting in and around NCR region residential areas and especially in Noida. I filed few queries/ with PMO and also to NDTV RTI to check if they were regulated as per norms if any. Technologists have no clue on biology and genetics. They will defend thier interests unless the ill effects are proven with strong correalation. They can see thermal effect which is heat. The biological effects will take time and we all may pay a very heavy price. Alternate solutions to be explored and govt should and must regulate these installations in residential premises and on top of apartments.We all should proceed actively on this.
Dear Sir: I have read your article about harmful effects of cellphone towers coming up in residential area. One of such tower is coming up in my own place which is a residential area. The proposed tower will be installing only 20 feets away from my own house and other sorrounding houses in my locality. So, my concern is, should I stop this proposed tower from being installed ? Will it really be harmful in long run as it is going to be installed to a very near distant from my living room. Please advise.
I have a common wall building in Siliguri (WEST BENGAL)..My neighbour is setting a Mobile Tower of BSNL without my NOC and the construction is going on
full swing. So what should I do to remove that Mobile Tower from there?? Please help pankaj rawat <firstname.lastname@example.org>
I am working as Trustee of Grahak Hitwardhini Pune an NGO of Cosumers . I shall be very much thankful to you if u kindky tell me whether Government has given

For the past one year I am coming across many articles about cell phone tower radiation. But only recently I have read your article on Mass killings. I am living in Tamilnadu in a place full of cellphone towers. So I am planning to file a case regarding this. I have bought a house and there are many cellphone towers in the near vicinity. Can you give me ideas and guide me as to how to proceed with it. Can you send me various reports on these towers & any other material that would help me file a suit. How else can we fight against the erection of cellphone towers in residential areas and in school premises ? Also how to protect us from these deadly radiations? I am a docter and I can imagine the hazards these cellphone towers can cause. It would be of great help if you could give me your valuable opinion. thanking you Dr Ponnudhali

I chanced upon your article "stop mass killing-cell tower radiation" while googling the subject on the web. My apartment is on the top floor of our building and we do have this huge towers on the terrace of our building. Could you advise or direct me on the best tools to measure the radiation levels in my apartment? Until recently these towers were placed right across on another building which was recently demolished..
Looking forward to your help..

Dear Shri Chopra,
I came across your articles/comments on LiveIndia.com when I was searching for info regarding radiation from cellular tower installed on residential bldgs. I found them very useful. From my discussions with some others in this field, I have concluded that radiation from a tower does not affect the residents of the building on which it is installed due conical to shield type effect and absorption of radiation by concrete structure. We get affected by radiation from towers installed in nearby buildings. In other words, if one has to choose from buildings (a) Having cell tower on its terrace & (b) building close to (a)he should select (a) as he will be protected. Please confirm if my understanding is correct. I am working with ONGC as Chief
Engineer (Electrical). Regards

I read your articles while searching for ill effects of mobile towers on net. I stay on the 4th. floor of a building. I have a terrace flat. The building next to us is a three storey building and their terrace is at the same level as my flat. This building has installed 3 different cell phone antennae on the terrace and one of them is just 20 ft. away from my windows and open terrace and other is abot 40 ft away. I fear that my family will be continuously exposed to radiations day and night and can be detrimental. The land lord of the opposite building is paid 26 L per annum rent for the terrace by cell phone co and is not willing to give it up. I would request you to guide me as to what can be done in this respect.

I have read your article on Cell Tower Radiation, one of my neighbour has installed Reliance Tower inhis terrace, I need to know if there is any device to detect how much radiation is coming from thistower, please let me know.
I am a resident of Cochin. Kerala. I recently bought a house and there is Cell Tower near the our house within the 50 meters. At that time I was not aware of the bad effects of the tower. I have a small kid and I am very worried for her sake too. We have not started residing there. Can you advice me on what to do to avoid the bad effects from affecting our health? How can I get the place tested for radiation?
Warm Regards-- Asha
I had gone through your article titled "Cell tower dngers" on liveindia.com, regarding risks from cell tower radiations. But in fact the radiations emitted from cellphones are very very high compared to the radiations reaching your body from cell towers, which I can prove instrumentally. Cellphones emit pulsating radiations continuously every second even in standby mode for tracking its position with the tower and when it receives call, the intensity of radiations emitted from cellphone increases tremendously. Under such scenario many researchers have concluded that the radiations from cell phone are enough powerful to damage body cells and alter their normal metabolic and physiological functions which results into several health disorders on long term such as cancer and tumour etc, which you are very well aware of. Now the most important issue is the protection against cell phone radiations in genuine way, for which I have a proven solution. i.e Waveban Cellphone Radiation Shield. Its a slim card made up of radiation blocking material, which is to be placed behind your cellphone in your pocket so that it acts as a shield between you and your cellphone by blocking the entry of radiations emitted from cellphone into your body, which again we can prove by demonstration. If you need more information, you are free to call me.
