Resentment is growing among residents of the Millennium City over proliferation of illegal mobile towers. After protests by residents of Wimbley Estate and Essel Towers, the Residents’ Welfare Associations (RWAs) of Oakwood Estate and DLF Phase 4 have also decided to take up the issue with the administration.

Residents of Oakwood Estate are demanding removal of mobile towers installed at A-56, Akashneem Marg, DLF City, Phase 2, which is just 50 metres from their area.

The residents have urged the district town planner (enforcement) Anil Dabas, to remove these towers.

There are 322 flats in Oakwood Estate.

The RWA of DLF Phase 4 has also decided to approach the administration for removal of these towers. A couple of residents of Botanica Hibiscus got the towers installed at the rooftops of their houses. Other colony residents have also asked the house owners to get them removed. These towers are near Shri Ram School, Aravali. “We have been requesting these owners for the last two years to remove these towers, but of no use. We have now decided to approach the administration,” said Rajender Sharma, president, RWA. He also said, that recently a resident has been diagnosed with cancer and “we suspect it is because of the radiations from mobile towers”.

There are around 500 mobile towers in the district.
