Khan tsunami And so

Khan tsunami? And so Hanif played, AC Milan are fourth at one point further behind,we think spectrum should have been auctioned?we also have a right to say we dont think it should have been auctioned We have a right to say that spectrum should be bundled with a licenceprovided in some way there is a framework that allows the operator to pass that benefit onto the consumerwhich in some ways was happening But what tended to happen with the CAG reportat least the 2G reportwas that because you havent auctioned it and there may have been a loss to the exchequer in terms of absolute figures and not in terms of the long-term benefit to the nationit got two issues One was spectrum allocation and second was maybe a violation of the first-come-first-serve policy We jumbled it up in our public discourse I think and as a resultthe policy of not auctioning went to the courts and it was mandated that you have to auction it To methats a problem not just in the 2G case but in governance in generalwhich is any authoritywhether its CAG or CBI or even civil societyshould look at policies being implemented wrongly P VAIDYANATHAN IYER: When do you think inter-circle portability will come I cant specify a timeline but I know Mr (Kapil) Sibal had said roaming would become free this year A few of these are aspects we are toying withsome of them have issues to do with the licensing regime and others are just in terms of revenue share SoI cant give you a timeframe but we are implementing those policies and giving consumers the choice SHUBHANGI KHAPRE: In telecomwhat are your concerns as now they are talking about health hazards and cellphone towers A year-and-a-half-agowhen I got into this ministrythe focus in the department of telecom was around the 2G case as we were also fighting a legal battle And I thought what we should do to regulate that consumer space India has embraced wireless telephony like no one other country before it Todaywe are in a situation where we have 6000000 mobile towers and almost 75 lakh DTS sites to connect 900 million mobile subscribers And we have those many handsets also in the market What we are trying to do is really how do we regulate and give more attention to this And not wrong kind of attention that says its dangerous or stop using it We found that there is no real deep research anywhere in the world that says a mobile tower or a handset for sure can cause any health problem In 2003Indias teledensity was five percentand now it is 80 per cent So what we did in 2008 is that we said we will adopt international guidelines for regulating radiation limits from towers and handsets and we adopted those standards In 2010we said we will enforce the standards From September 2012we have taken those standards and made them ten times more stringent Enforcement and implementation We have an enforcement cellbut we dont have enough people in it yet We also need the support of state governments and municipalities and that will help us fix that enforcement We have given a set of model guidelines to them in terms of how far a tower should behow to give permissions and how to regulate them MIHIKA BASU: In an inter-ministerial meetingyou said India has the most stringent norms and theres no conclusive evidence to show association of health hazards The residents associationsparticularly in South Mumbaireacted strongly to your statements Do you think efforts should be made reach out to them We are not doing something in isolationbut something that the whole world is doing Its a global technology that the world uses to connect on phones We can only say that in the absence of thiswe are following stringent standards We have formed a group now to do a purely India-centric studywhich will look at what the world is followingwhat Indias biological issues areare Indians more affected to this than others and so on If we find something conclusivenot only will that be a guiding report for tailoring and changing the policybut I think it could also be an eye-opener for the rest of the world We could be the first country that tells the world that we have so many millions of wireless customersand we thought its important for us to do a study that looks at its potential impacton humans In this committeewe have got our ministryDSTMinistry of Health & Family WelfareMinistry of Environment & Forests to look at its impact on other species too MIHIKA BASU: When is the report expected I cant give you a timeline because it takes time to study the impact on humans and other specieshealth and environmental impacts We are looking at it from a holistic angle and I am concerned about this personally SMITA NAIR: Do cellular operators feel that you might be a little biased when you interact with them I am sure they werent even happy when we made it (the norms) 10 times more stringent They expressed strong reservations to it They said there is no health issuewhich we ignored as we felt its better to be cautious MIHIKA BASU: Is your department in touch with local bodies such as the BMC Yeswe have written to every state governmentasking them to ask every municipality and panchayat to follow a model set of guidelines (that we have given) while giving permissions We have to be careful as a society is that every state government and municipality starts saying we think its unsafe.
