Mobile Tower Installation Procedure
Important point to consider here is that the requirement of mobile tower at a particular location is decided by the telecom company itself. Telecom companies decides the location based on RF(Radio Frequency) analysis and they select location based on result of RF analysis. They figure out the location where tower is required and they approach the property owner to install the tower on roof of heighest building of that locality. If you have a property which is ideal for mobile tower as per your knowledge but that property is not suitable for telecom operators then they will not install tower at your property. What we need to understand here is that if your property location is crucial in the eyes of telecom companies then they will approach you for the installation of tower.

How Much Monthly Rent You Can Expect For Putting Their Towers On Your Residential Building
Private companies like Airtel, Vodafone, Reliance, etc are currently paying lucrative amount for putting their mobile towers on residential building and it depends on their requirement. Rent paid by operators for towers depends on the interest of telecom operator and it varies from 8k to 100k per month. If an individual telecom operator alone seeking for a location to place the tower it means they have particular interest in that area and will pay more, sometimes bargain makes the rent higher. If they have contacted you for tower installation then you should show your interest and bargain with them to get more montly rent. They have contacted you and it means that they have requirement of tower in that area.
In India, most telecom towers are now installed by independent private tower companies or telecom infrastructure provider companies like Indus or ATC and they then rent it out to telecom companies like Airtel , Vodafone, Reliance, etc. The rents that tower companies or telecom companies pay depends directly on the real estate value of the location of property and varies anywhere between Rs. 8000/ month to 1 lakh/ month in some locations in Mumbai , Delhi, Bangalore, Chennai, Hderabad and other metro locations. Basically it is a factor of their desperation and the land owner’s negotiation skill.
