Mobile towers in Maoist-hit areas

The Centre on Wednesday approved the installation of 4,072 mobile towers in Maoist-affected areas in 10 states.

The Cabinet chaired by Prime Minister Narendra Modi has approved the "Universal Service Obligation Fund (USOF)” supported scheme to provide mobile services at 4072 tower locations identified by the Ministry of Home Affairs in areas affected by Left Wing Extremism (LWE) across 96 districts in 10 states for Phase-II of the project. The total project cost would be Rs 7,330 crore, said a statement.

This network would be used by the security personnel deployed in Maoist-hit areas. The project will also provide the mobile services to help residents in unconnected inhabited villages which would improve the economic activities in the region, said the statement.
