Supertech to approach Supreme Court in 7 10 days against Allahabad High Court order

DELHI: Realty firm Supertech today said it will move the Supreme Court in the next 7-10 days and challenge the Allahabad High Court's order to demolish two 40-storey towers in a Noida housing project. The two towers, Apex and Ceyane have a combined 857 apartments, of which about 600 flats were sold. The towers are part of Supertech's Emerald Court project.

"We are consulting with the senior lawyers. We will file the petition in the Supreme Court in the next 7-10 days," Supertech Chairman and Managing Director R K Arora told PTI. Arora reiterated the construction of the two towers was according to the approved plan and was authorised. "We held a meeting with the affected buyers. Nobody wants refund of money. They only want their flats," he added.

Hundreds of affected buyers held protests against the company and the high court order yesterday. The Noida Estate Flat Owners & Members Association (NEFOMA), set up during the land acquisition crisis in Noida Extension in 2011-12, is helping to organise the buyers together and prepare a future course of action.

"We will be able to chalk out our strategy in the next 4-5 days, whether to file a review petition in the Allahabad High Court or file a police complaint or to approach the apex court," NEFOMA President Annu Khan said.

Last week, a division bench comprising Justice V K Shukla and Justice Suneet Kumar ordered the demolition of the two towers erected in Sector 93-A of Noida as part of the Supertech Emerald Court Complex "within a period of four months." The complex comprises of residential premises and shopping establishments. The court also ordered that money be refunded to all those who had invested in the two towers "with 14 per cent interest compounded annually."

The judgement was passed while allowing a writ petition of the Emerald Court Owners Resident Welfare Association, which alleged that the approval and construction of the two towers was "in complete violation of the UP Apartment Acts." The petitioner claimed the Noida Authority had given permission to raise the height of the two towers, which were earlier supposed to have only 24 floors, "without maintaining the mandatory distance of 16 metres) from an adjoining building block, making it "unsafe, apart from blocking air and light."
