Just yesterday the two of the biggest residential towers were brought down with the help of explosives named Apex and Ceyane or we can say the Noida twin towers. These residential towers were located in sector 93 in Noida. The demolition project of these two towers resulted in a loss of about more than 500 crores as estimated by builders. Supertech also had to give another 20 Crore rupees to demolish the buildings.
So let’s know why the buildings were demolished
The twin towers were almost 100 metres in height as one was 103 metre and another was 97 metres tall. A total of 3700 kg of explosives were brought to bring the tower to the ground.
These residential towers were situated in Supertech Emerald Court housing society of Noida Sector 93. It was proposed in 2004 at around 48000 sq mtrs.
In 2005 the Noida authority sanctioned the construction of 14 towers, each with ground plus nine floors.
In 2006, the area of plot leased was increased to around 54,800 sq mtrs.
Following year in December(2006), Noida authority sanctioned the revised plan for the construction by which two floors were added to each building making it ground plus eleven floors and also sanctioned two new buildings and a shopping complex.
Later on the plan was revised and allowed to construct 40 floors in each tower.
In 2012, Noida authority again revised the plan and fixed the towers upto 40 floors.
After this, residents of the tower went to Allahabad high court in 2012 stating the construction is illegal and builders are increasing their profit by illegal construction.
In 2014, the high court directed the authority to demolish the towers within 4 months.
The case went to Supreme court. In August 2021, the court gave order to demolish the building within 3 month. But due to technicalities it got delayed for almost a year.
According to Supreme Court, the building norms were violated by builders with help of some corrupt officers in Noida authorities.
The buildings were to be demolished in May which later was postponed to 21st August and again extended to 28th August.
It got demolished yesterday at 2.30 under the supervision of Noida Authorities by Supertech builders.
The Supertech twin towers in Noida, Uttar Pradesh were finally demolished on Sunday through controlled implosion – almost nine years after the residents went to court over irregularities in the construction.
