SC puts saty on de­mo­li­tion of Su­pertech’s twin tower

Accommodation Times - - .. Nation.. -

The Supreme Court on 5th May, Mon­day puts stay on Su­pertech’s twin 40-storeyed res­i­den­tial tow­ers from de­mo­li­tion and or­dered that it will hear the plea of the realty firm chal­leng­ing All­habad High Court’s or­der, but they have or­dered the build­ing to be sealed till fur­ther or­ders and added that the flats can­not not be fur­ther sold, al­lot­ted or trans­ferred.

A bench of Chief Jus­tice R M Lodha and Jus­tices Madan B Lokur and Kurian Joseph made this or­der pend­ing a fi­nal ver­dict on ap­peals by the builder and flat own­ers. The Supreme Court bench was quick in giv­ing in­terim re­lief against de­mo­li­tion of the Su­pertech tow­ers but it was quicker to sniff an un­holy nexus be­tween the builder and Noida ad­min­is­tra­tion.

In their plea, the firm claims that the two tow­ers were be­ing con­structed as per the ap­proved build­ing plans from the Noida author­ity and no vi­o­la­tion of rules was done. The pe­ti­tioner also claimed the Noida author­ity had given per­mis­sion to raise the height of the two tow­ers, which was ear­lier sup­posed to have only 24 floors each, with­out main­tain­ing the manda­tory dis­tance of 16 me­tres from an ad­join­ing build­ing block, mak­ing it un­safe, apart from block­ing air and light.

Also Noida author­ity and home buy­ers have pe­ti­tioned the court that, the high court’s or­der to de­mol­ish the tow­ers Apex and Ceyane be im­me­di­ately stayed. The two tow­ers have 857 apart­ments in to­tal. Of these, about 600 flats have al­ready been sold.
