Accommodation Times - - .. Nation.. -

Al­la­habad High Court on 11th April or­dered to de­mol­ish two 40 storey tow­ers in Noida con­structed by Su­pertech realty firm, fol­low­ing the or­ders Noida au­thor­i­ties have sealed the tow­ers. The court or­ders are in sub­ject to a pe­ti­tion filled that al­leges their con­struc­tion had vi­o­lated the law.

The duo tow­ers Apex and Ceyane con­sist to­tal 857 apart­ments, out of which 600 are sold and are a part of Su­pertech’s Emer­ald Court project. Court has in­structed the firm to re­fund the money to the home buy­ers, with 14 per cent in­ter­est com­pounded an­nu­ally.

As per the pe­ti­tion filled by the Emer­ald Court Own­ers Res­i­dent Wel­fare As­so­ci­a­tion, al­leged that the ap­proval and con­struc­tion of the two tow­ers was in com­plete vi­o­la­tion of the UP Apart­ment Acts. It claimed that Noida Author­ity had given per­mis­sion to raise the height of the two tow­ers, which were sup­posed to have only 24 floors, with­out main­tain­ing the manda­tory dis­tance of 16 me­tres from an ad­join­ing build­ing block, mak­ing it un­safe, apart from block­ing air and light. Su­pertech, which has suf­fered a ma­jor set­back with this de­ci­sion, will move the Supreme Court in the next week chal­leng­ing the high court or­der, Chair­man and Man­ag­ing Di­rec­tor R K Arora had said.

The firm is claim­ing that the con­struc­tion of the tow­ers was ac­cord­ing to the ap­proved plan and was au­tho­rised. Hun­dreds of af­fected buy­ers held protests against the com­pany and the high court or­der ear­lier this week.
