He went on to add that his department has been actively making sure that the radiation emitted by mobile phone towers are below the prescribed limit and said that a fine of Rs 5 lakh has been slapped on each tower that does not comply with the limit.

"While telecom is a huge success story in India, we have to ensure that any possible health-related effects of radiation emitted by mobile phones and towers are reflected in the guidelines. The final guidelines would take into account the best global benchmarks and scientific evidence on the subject", he said.
