Maharashtra Village Bans Smartphones For Minors; Here’s Why


Yavatmal: In a move to try and combat phone addiction, Bansi, a village in the Pusad tensile of Yavatmal district in Maharashtra, unanimously adopted a resolution on November 11 to ban the use of mobile among children below the age of 18.

The sarpanch Gajanan Tale informed that if anyone violates the rule, they would be fined Rs 200.

Gajanan said all parents have been asked to make their children follow the ban strictly.

According to the sarpanch, the village school children are addicted to mobile phones, Hindustan Times reported.

“We know that there will be difficulties in implementation. But we will remove these problems through counselling. Penalties will have to be levied on them for violation of the decision. But the villagers have unanimously supported this decision,” he further claimed.

“Initially, we will counsel them and if we fail to reach our goal, we will impose a penalty,” Tale said and added that the exact amount of penalty is yet to be fixed.
