The Municipal Corporation of Gurgaon (MCG) has sought help from the Punjab and Haryana High Court to procure information regarding number of mobile towers in the city with a stay order.

The MCG turned to the court after many tower operators refused to show a copy of the stay order to its enforcement wing despite claims of possessing one. "Once we have an exact number, we can take action against illegal towers operating within municipal limits," said Anju Chaudhary, joint commissioner, MCG.

According to the MCG, 463 mobile towers are operating from residential areas without permission from the competent authority. "Several operators claim they have a stay order from the high court so we could not send them a notice to terminate operations," said Chaudhary.

"The court granted a stay to some mobile towers operators against the district town planning department (enforcement) saying only the MCG established in June 2008 is authorized to take action in licenced areas," said a senior MCG official.
