BIG BREAKING: Supertech Twin Towers SHATTERED to ground in 15 seconds

New Delhi: The Twin Towers of Noida have been demolished. In just 15  seconds after the blast, both the towers turned into rubble. The towers that were demolished included the Apex (32 storeys) and the Cayenne (29 storeys), which was part of the Emerald Court. Several rules were found to be violated regarding the construction of both the towers, after which the matter first reached the Allahabad High Court and then the Supreme Court. After a long legal battle, the verdict went in favor of the Residents Welfare Association. Let us understand what happened in the Twin Towers case.

The story starts from 2004. In the same year, New Okhla Industrial Development Authority (Noida) allotted a plot to housing society Supertech Limited in 2004 which came to be known as Emerald Court.

A year later in 2005, as per the New Okhla Industrial Development Area Building Regulations and Directions 1986, Supertech was given permission to construct 14 towers with 10 floors each. A green park was also to be built in it.

In June 2006, according to the new plan, two new towers were said to be built on the green park land. After this the number of towers increased to 16. Apex and Cayenne were placed of these two new towers. In 2009, the Noida Authority was asked to increase the height of these two towers to 40 floors. On the other hand, when the people present near the Twin Towers came to know about it, they objected.

The matter reached Allahabad High Court in 2011

In 2011, the Residents Welfare Association filed a petition in the Allahabad High Court. It was alleged that the UP Apartment Owners Act, 2010 has been violated during the construction of the towers. The landlords claimed that the distance between the two towers was less than 16 meters, which was in violation of the law. The original plan was amended to replace the Green Park with both new towers.

On the other hand, in 2012, before the hearing of the case began in the Allahabad High Court, the authority approved the new plan proposed in 2009, that is, the twin tower was approved to be built up to 40 floors.

Allahabad court ordered the demolition in 2014

In April 2014, the Allahabad High Court ruled in favor of the Residents Welfare Association, while ordering the demolition of the Twin Towers. It also asked Supertech to demolish the towers at its own expense and return the home buyers money with 14 per cent interest.

In May 2014, the Noida Authority and Supertech moved the Supreme Court stating that the twin towers were constructed as per norms.

In August 2021, the Supreme Court upheld the order of the Allahabad High Court and ordered the demolition of the towers, saying that the rules for the construction of the towers were violated.

The Supreme Court has asked that the towers be demolished between August 29 and September 4, taking into account any minor delays due to technical reasons or weather conditions.

After the collapse of the towers, what will be the problem with the dust?
After the demolition of the twin towers, the dust will not affect the health of the local people, as the demolition of the towers is being done under the supervision of experts. The authorities have installed special machines to monitor the post-demolition pollution. They will check the level of pollution. At the same time, fog guns have also been installed at different places to control the debris and dust.
