SC Extends Demolition Deadline Till August 28; Details Here


The Supreme Court on Friday extended the deadline for the demolition of Noida twin buildings till August 28, with a bandwidth of seven days until September 4, on account of technical delay and delay due to weather conditions. Earlier, the Supertech buildings were scheduled to be demolished on August 21. The test blast of the buildings, namely Apex and Ceyane, has already been carried out.

The apex court in August 2021 ordered the demolition of the structures as their construction violated the minimum distance requirement. They were built illegally without taking the consent of the individual flat owners as required under the UP Apartment Act.

The twin towers are located at Sector 93-A of Noida and close to the Noida-Greater Noida Expressway. While one tower has a height of 103 metres, another is around 97-metre tall. Both towers together have a built-up area of around 7.5 lakh square feet.

The Central Building Research Institute (CBRI), in an application filed by Supertech before the Supreme Court on July 29, said it had sought information regarding the blast design, test blast, ground vibration, dust cloud, vibration monitoring report, and post-demolition debris assessment. It had also sought the structural audit report with respect to nearby buildings.

Originally, the 32-storeyed twin towers in Noida were to be razed on May 22, which was postponed. In the process of the demolition, ‘charging’ of the building will first take place. It is a process to pack 3,700 kg of explosives into over 9,000 holes that have drilled into the tower’s concrete. It was to start on August 2. Supertech has roped in Mumbai-based Edifice Engineering to carry out the demolition of the towers.
