SC extends demolition date for Super Tech's Noida twin towers till August 28

On August 31 last year, the top court had ordered the demolition of the towers under construction within three months for violation of building norms in "collusion” with Noida officials.

Supertech Twin Tower Demolition Date : The Supreme Court on Friday fixed August 28 deadline for demolition of Supertech's twin 40-storey towers in Uttar Pradesh's Noida. It had earlier set August 21 as the date of demolition of the buildings, which have been held illegal for violation of norms.

The order has been pronounced in response to a plea filed by by Interim Resolution Professional (IRP) seeking an extension of the timeline of May 22, 2022 by three months till August 28 after the agency appointed for demolition, Edifice Engineering sought time on grounds of slight change in design after carrying out test blasts

A bench of Justices D Y Chandrachud and AS Bopanna granted a "bandwidth" of one week from August 29 to September 4 to the agencies engaged in the demolishing exercise of the twin towers on grounds that there may be some marginal delay in razing the huge buildings due to technical and weather conditions.

The top court also asked agencies concerned, including the management of Supertech, to cooperate with the agencies engaged in the demolition exercise.

On August 31 last year, the top court had ordered the demolition of the towers under construction within three months for violation of building norms in "collusion” with Noida officials, holding that illegal construction has to be dealt with strictly to ensure compliance of the rule of law.
