The minister was speaking to Zee Regional channels’ CEO Jagdish Chandra in the “A DIALOGUE WITH JC” show on Thursday.
Sinha was referring to the government’s Tarang Sanchar portal that will provide information on mobile towers and and whether they comply with the electromagnetic field emission norms. It will also have information about mobile towers in a particular locality, besides the option to get the details via email.
The portal will allow anybody to request for electro-magnetic field emission measurement at a location by paying Rs 4,000 online.
He also said people nowadays are using data more than voice calls. This, according to him, is an indication that India is heading towards a less-cash economy.
