I do not know why there is a total ban of cellphones both for teachers and students in school in India, it will be nice to know the reason before giving an opinion. In here during the shooting at Virginia Tech, I understand that people with cell phones were getting information that otherwise they would not have. It is possible that things are more peaceful in India, and they do not foresee any need for a cellphone.

I think its a good idea but you should have a phone in the class room incase of emergency. Mobiles should only be allowed to be used at break times so they do not disturb people in the classes.
