In a letter to Choumu legislator Ram Lal Sharma, who last month raised a question in the assembly on link between cancer and people living within 100 meters of mobile towers, the Cellular Operators' Association of India (COAI) said there were no such adverse health consequences.

"Firstly, you would appreciate the fact that mobile towers are needed to improve the requisite communications infrastructure, which will be crucial to achieve the Digital India dream of Prime Minister of India, Narendra Modi," said Rajan S. Mathews, COAI director general, in the letter to the legislator.

The letter states that authorities across the country have relied on credible scientific information on the issue, that has come from some of the topmost scientific bodies such as the World Health Organization, and health ministries of many European countries.

Further reduction in electro-magnetic field (EMF) limits has been done with the precaution principle in mind, thereby removing any further need for worry, the COAI said.
