Bihar to frame bill for regulating mobile towers
PATNA: Deputy Chief Minister S K Modi today said the state government would soon frame Bihar Communications Towers and Related Structures’ Rule 2011 for regulating mobile towers in the urban areas.
“We will soon frame the rule for the purpose of regulation of old mobile towers which have been set up without prior sanction and new ones to be set up within the urban areas,” Modi told reporters here.
With no rule in force for controlling the old towers which were set up Modi said, “We have decided to frame the rule to be soon placed before the state cabinet for approval.”
Modi said the new rule, if implemented, would help urban bodies earn Rs 50,000 per tower to be set up by mobile operators towards registration and payment of an additional Rs 15,000 per month for every tower.
