UP CM Orders Compliance Of SC Order In "Letter And Spirit" On Noida's Supertech Emerald Court
Lucknow, Sep 1 (TNA) Uttar Pradesh chief minister Yogi Adityanath on Wednesday said that the Supreme Court (SC) orders, in the case of Noida's Supertech Emerald Court builder, should be complied with "in letter an spirit".
He added that in this case irregularities had been going on continuously since 2004. A special inquiry committee, he instructed, should be constituted at the government level to conduct a thorough investigation in the said case. "Strictest action will be taken against each and every guilty officer" he said while adding that "if necessary, criminal case should also be registered".
Ending a legal battle that spanned over 10 years, the Supreme Court on Tuesday upheld an Allahabad High Court order for demolition of illegal 40-storey towers and initiating criminal proceedings against the builder responsible.
The bench of Justices DY Chandrachud and MR Shah upheld the 2014-judgment of the Allahabad High Court in the case involving the twin towers at Emerald Court developed by Supertech builders. The two towers in question have 915 flats and shops.
The Supreme Court found that the developer had illegally constructed two towers — T16 and T17 with 40 floors — without prior sanctioned building plans, and in violation of provisions of the various building regulations.
The bench held that “collusion between the developer and the planning authority” was “writ large” in the illegal construction of housing towers in Noida.
