Noida's Supertech twin towers demolished today on 20 Aug 2022 around 4 PM.

The "Supertech Emerald Court" housing society in Noida's Sector 93A is where these twin towers were situated.
Around 3,700 kg of explosives, a combination of dynamite, emulsions, and plastic explosives, were utilised for the demolition.  Watch it on Twitter
On Sunday, August 28, the nearly 100-meter-tall, 32-story Supertech twin towers in Noida were effectively brought down.
These twin buildings were situated in Noida's Sector 93A housing community known as "Supertech Emerald Court."
Around 3,700 kg of explosives, a combination of dynamite, emulsions, and plastic explosives, were utilised for the demolition.
About 20 crore rupees were spent on the destruction, which was covered by Supertech.
In a public statement, RK Arora, CMD of Supertech, claimed that the Noida Authority had approved the project's development plans, including those for the two towers Apex and Ceyane, in 2009, strictly in conformity with the State Government's then-current Building Bye regulations.
The 2004 plan called for the construction of two towers, one of 103 metres in height and the other about 97 metres.
The 48,263 square metres of land, which was a portion of Plot No. 4 in Sector 93A, were granted by the Noida Authority.
No deviations from the building plan were made, according to Arora, and the building was only completed once the Authority had received full payment.
On technical grounds, the Hon. Supreme Court did not find the construction suitable, and as a result, it issued orders to demolish the two towers.
The project was situated away from the expressway that connects Noida and Greater Noida, the twin cities.
According to real estate websites, the value of the apartments ranges from Rs 1 crore to Rs 3 crore at this time.
"We are committed to delivering the remaining homes as scheduled. We have finished and delivered more than 70,000 units to customers.
We pledge to finish construction and deliver the flats to the allottees by the scheduled period and guarantee all of our home buyers that the order of the Honorable Supreme Court won't have an impact on any other projects that are already underway.


What caused the Supertech twin towers to be destroyed

The Supreme Court (SC), on August 31, 2021, ordered the demolition of the Supertech twin towers, commonly known as the Apex and Ceyane towers, stating that illegal construction must be dealt with rigorously to guarantee compliance with the law.
In 2005, the Noida Authority approved the construction proposal for Emerald Court, a 14-tower development. In the same year, these towers' construction also got under way.
The issues arose after the developer Supertech altered the original designs in March 2012 and constructed a complex of 15 buildings, each of which had 11 floors in place of the original nine. The revised plan also called for the construction of Ceyane and Apex, two more skyscrapers that would rise 40 storeys above the ground and eventually serve as the focal point of the legal dispute between Supertech and the residents.
Documents filed in court up until December 2006 state that residents were promised a "green" space in front of Tower 1. This was part of the original proposal that was altered in June 2005. However, the "green" region later used as the foundation for the twin towers.
The Emerald Court homeowners demanded that the twin towers be torn down on the grounds that they were being built unlawfully and petitioned the Noida Authority to revoke the permissions given for their development.
The residents subsequently filed an appeal with the Allahabad High Court, which granted their requests. The Supertech Twin Towers were to be demolished, according to a high court judgement from April 2014. The developer, however, contested the decision, and the case eventually made it to India's Supreme Court.
The Supreme Court ruled in its ruling that the development by the Supertech developer violated the minimum separation standard. According to the Uttar Pradesh Apartment Act, individual flat owners had to provide their assent before the structures could be erected.
