The village of Yaftal bans the use of mobile phones by children

A village in Yavatmal district in western Vidarbha district of Maharashtra state has banned the use of mobile phones by those under the age of 18.

The decision was taken in the village of Gram Sabha in Pansi village under the leadership of Posad Tehsil as the children became addicted to watching games and browsing websites that are not fit to watch.

Gajanan Tale, Sarpanch Bansi Gram Panchayat, said all parents were asked to make their children follow the ban strictly.
