Karnataka's Decision to Ban Mobile Phone from Schools, Colleges Commended

The Karnataka Government's decision to ban the use of mobile phones in schools and colleges for children under the age of 16, has evoked a positive response.

Christy Vijir, a student from St. Joseph Boys School, said that the using of mobile phones distracts and corrupts students mind, and the ban was a good decision.

The cell phone industry, however, says there is no evidence of cell phones causing health-related problems.

According to a BBC report, India has the fastest growing mobile phone market in the world, with over 170 million subscribers.

Every month around seven million new subscribers join the list, and a large number of them, are children.

Last year, colas were banned in school and college canteens.
