Supertech Emerald case: The apex court has asked NBCC to prepare verification report in four weeks and the next hearing in the matter will be on Sept 6.
The Supreme Court on Wednesday directed state-owned construction company NBCC India to verify compliance of safety norms by real estate firm Supertech Builders, according to TV reports. The apex court had hinted about appointing an independent organisation to study building violations by Supertech. The court has asked NBCC to prepare verification report in four weeks and the next hearing in the matter will be on Sept 6. Earlier this month, SC had asked Supertech to deposit Rs 5 crore by July 25 as part of refund to homebuyers of twin towers of Emerald Court in Noida – Apex and Ceyane towers.
In 2014, Allahabad High Court had ordered demolition of the twin towers on Noida Expressway. The price of the flats ranged from Rs 65-90 lakhs.
The apex court had in July 2014 directed Supertech to refund within a month around Rs 35 crore to the allottees of twin towers —Apex and Ceyane towers on Noida Expressway — which were directed to be demolished by the Allahabad High Court for flouting building laws. There are around 53 allottees out of around 600, who had sought refund of their amount after the HC order.
The two 40-floor towers have 857 apartments, out of which 600 have been sold.
