The new laboratory can take SAR measurements for CDMA, GSM 2G and 3G mobile handsets according to indiatoday.
The government has said that new mobile phones manufactured in the country or imported should start following the stricter radiation norms by September 1. The radiation level should be displayed on such handsets.
Telecom minister Kapil Sibal, while commissioning the SAR laboratory, said, “We have set up a lab in the country so that mobile phones can be tested here for electromagnetic radiations. More such labs will be set up across the country starting with Mumbai.”
