Karnataka: No mobiles for under 16s
In a new rule that is sure to create a furore among students, the Karnataka government has banned the sale of mobile phones to children below the age of 16 years. TimesNow.tv reports.
"The Southern India State has also banned the use of mobile phones in schools and colleges.
Education Minister Basavaraj Horatti said that it would be the schools and the parents who would have to be responsible for any consequences in case of a violation of the ban.
However, it is still unclear as to how the sale of phones across the state could actually be restricted or regulated."
