The illegal twin towers built by Supertech, which are taller than Qutub Minar, will be finished on 28 August at 2:30 PM. After around nine years of implacable efforts by the Residents Welfare Association (RWA) of the Supertech Emerald Court, the Supreme Court (SC), ordered the demolition of the two unlawful constructed buildings – Apex and Ceyane in August 2021. The welfare association claimed that the construction of these two twin towers violated the UP Apartments Act of 2010. Further, details mentioned by propertywala.com.
Noida Twin Towers Demolition:
Real estate firm Supertech Ltd built the Noida twin towers and was the dream house of many. According to the Press Trust of India (PTI), the Noida twin towers will literally fall down like a house of cards in a process that would take less than 10 seconds for them. The Residents Welfare Association (RWA) of Emerald Court Group Housing Society in UP’s Noida filed a petition in Allahabad High Court against Supertech in 2014.
Besides, the twin towers namely – Apex and Ceyane towers are parts of the Emerald Court project of Supertech. It is a prominent construction company in the Delhi-NCR region. In August 2021, the SC has ordered the razing of these Towers within 3 months of its decision being announced. Sadly, it has been pending for almost a year now.
Finally, the Noida Authority updated the court that the demolition work had begun in February 2022. The demolition took place on August 21. However, on May 17, 2022, the court extended the deadline to August 28, 2022, for the demolition.
“The Supertech Twin Towers demolition case is the result of the absence of specific and expressed consent of the existing flat owners of the project” stated Rahul Hingmire, Founding Partner, Vis Legis Law Practice, Advocates. A multiphase constructed project must be based on the consent of the existing flat owners before proceeding.”
How will the Noida Twin Towers be destroyed:
The area of these towers together captures an estimated 7.5 lakh sq.ft. 3,700 kg of explosives placed in these towers. The source of the explosives is from Palwal in Haryana which contains a mix of dynamite, emulsions, and plastic elements.
Approximately, 1,400 residents living in the area will be shifted. The Movement of the Noida- Greater Noida Expressway near the site will be stop for about 30 minutes. So, we are expecting a no man’s land by 12 pm.
Approx. 35,000 cu. m. of debris will be erect and 7,000 cu. m. of debris is to collect in the basement.
Consequences of Twin Tower Demolition:
With the total number of explosives and scale of demolition, over 5,000 residents of Emerald Court and ATS Village societies are likely to be affected due to demolition. Around 2,500 vehicles will also be halted. Additionally, emergency services will also be made available in that region at the time of the demolition process.
Moreover, a prohibition zone, an area of 450m in front of the towers has been distinct around the twin towers. Hence, no person, transport, or animal will be allowed within the zone, at the time of the demolition. In fact, it will also be a “no-fly zone” for drones.
