Support our 4G Antennae Case

Dear Friends,

As you are aware NAGAR has been advocating for the protection of Reserved Public Open Spaces (RPOS) in Greater Mumbai since 1998. The recent onslaught on these fast diminishing spaces is due to the permission given to private cellular companies to install 1160 4G cell towers in them! At present the open space ratio is a meager 1.24 sq m per person when the National norms are 10-12sqm per person.

With no sight of the anti people notification going away, NAGAR was constrained to file a PIL in the Bombay High Court against this policy and has obtained an interim stay on further permissions being given to install 4G cell towers! While our lawyers as always have been kind enough to work on this case on a pro bono basis the administrative costs of a PIL namely, filing of the papers, photocopying, paying for translation of Marathi documents and documents got through RTI, etc. are rising.

NAGAR urges you to partner us in this important battle by financially supporting this case which will help all Mumbaikars and will save our open spaces for future generations.

Cheque/Demand Draft should be in the name of NAGAR and sent to NAGAR office as given below. For further clarifications please do call the office at the numbers given below. An 80G exemption is available under the Income Tax Act.

NAGAR Cecil Court, 3rd flr., Mahakavi Bhushan Marg, Colaba, Mumbai - 400001.

NAGAR will also be able to send you the following documents for your information & vigilance. For this please email us your email ID.

1. A list of Public Open Spaces that have already received permission before the interim stay
2. A list of Reserved Public Open Spaces (RPOS) in your ward.

Please make sure that no installation takes place on the RPOS in your ward, which is not part of the first list! If any such illegal installation is being done please inform us on

Thank you in anticipation.
