CABLE POLLUTION

In any locality, the streets and buildings are littered with
cris-cross cable and wire lines. These are mostly done by Internet service providers in order to give connection. But when a service is discontinued, the cable is never removed. Instead new lines are given with more cris-cross cables thereby creating many other problems.

- Either the telecom dept., should have strict rules for cable connections or the cable companies must have the social responsibility to suitably advise their linemen about the usage of such cables.
- At many places, these cables hang blindly on which some vehicles or people can trip over and fall.
- Open cables may have the danger of shock.
- These cables are a hazard for the children who play on the streets.
- I think many of these cable insulations are not bio-degradable and cause tremendous problems at a later stage, particularly in residential areas.

I request that concerned authorities must look into this. more

We can take up this issue to our RWA and jointly follow up the concerned Government department. more  
In India, " WE HAVE CHALTA HAI ATITUDE" Hence don't expect any improvement unless some strong leader comes and the freedom of people is curtailed. more  
The electricity department is doing business by allowing the cables to be hanged on poles and there by collecting some users fee. The cable wires are hanging dangerously and causing hindrance due to broken wires on the street. more  
Perfect. more
