A day after the Supreme Court (SC) ordered the demolition of twin 40-story towers of Supertech's Emerald Court project in Noida, Uttar Pradesh (UP) Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath, on Wednesday, directed for a probe against guilty officers in Noida. 

According to the officials, Yogi has directed officers to file a case against the guilty officials along with strict action in the Supertech illegal twin tower case. 

Meanwhile, the Supreme Court (SC) India, on Tuesday, directed the demolition of twin 40-story towers of Supertech's Emerald Court project in Noida, amid the violation of building rules and regulations.

During the hearing, the SC said the building of twin towers with 915 flats and shops was a violation of building rules and regulations, and in collusion with New Okhla Industrial Development Authority (NOIDA) authorities.

The Apex court has allocated a three months time period for them to carry out the demolition under the supervision of the Noida authority.

The work of demolition will be completed by the litigant at its own expense under the management of the authorities of Noida. To make sure the demolition process in a safe way without influencing the current pleadings, Noida will have to counsel its own specialists and specialists from the Central Building Research Institute, Roorkee, the Top Court noted. 

Meanwhile, the Allahabad High Court on April 11, 2014 also directed the demolition of the two buildings within four months and the refund of money to apartment buyers.   

The Supreme Court also said the unlawful construction was done through agreement between the officials of NOIDA and Supertech and its administration, and the High Court's order doesn't warrant any obstruction. 

The bench which consists of Justice D Y Chandrachud and M R Shah said Supertech raised false pleas and endeavored to misdirect the court, while the authorities of Noida have not acted accordingly.

The Top Court also directed Supertech to refund the money to all flat owners in the towers; the sum contributed for the allocated flats alongside revenue at the pace of 12 per cent per annum, payable with impact from the date of the particular deposits. SC also ordered Supertech to pay Rs 2 crore to the Resident Welfare Association (RWA) within a month.

Meanwhile, RK Arora, Chairman Supertech group, told a leading media house that Supertech is going to file a review petition against the SC order.
