NOIDA: Home buyers of Apex and Ceyane towers in the Emerald Court residential project have decided to move Supreme Court and reclaim their flats instead of receiving a refund of their payments from the developer.

In a meeting with the developer’s representative on Sunday morning, buyers pointed out that most of them had paid 95 per cent of the amount for their flats. They blamed Noida Authority for granting permission to Supertech without considering the after-effects of the alleged illegalities.

Vivek Sharma, a buyer who has booked a three BHK flat in Apex tower, said, “Majority of buyers are in favour of getting their dream home and don’t want to get trapped in legal trouble. Most of us are working and do not have time to fight in courts. We hope that Supreme Court considers our plea and renders us relief.”

“We have not decided further course of action, but we are collecting required documents and permissions. We will take a stand soon,” Sharma said.

The developer, Supertech, has sought the support of buyers and formed a team to answer their queries. “For updates, buyers can call on 07838787863 or mail their queries to Buyers need not panic as we are considering every option that could bring us out of this situation. We need their cooperation. Apart from these two towers, all other projects are safe and there is no legal hurdle. Investments of buyers in any of our projects, is completely secure,” said RK Arora, CMD, Supertech.

“We have faced such situations in the past, but have overcome all hurdles with the help and cooperation of our trusted customers,” Arora added.

“We have put in our hard-earned money into the project. We want to reclaim our flat, not the refund,” said Jamal Anwar, one of the buyers.

An engineer by profession, Anwar said, “I have seen many buildings in Delhi-NCR with faulty structures. Those buildings are high risk but people are still allowed to stay there. As an engineer, my opinion is that these two towers are safe. By getting entangled in legal trouble, dreams of hundreds of families have been put at stake.”
