About 600 families are living in these 15 towers and In the second phase two under construction towers will be demolished. According to the court’s order, The Apex court has said that CBRI and the Noida authority will supervise the demolition of the twin towers builts in violation of the building bylaws. 

“We have formed an internal committee that will supervise the demolition work. We hope that Supertech will hire an agency for the purpose in the next 10 days, as said by Ritu Maheshwari”.

We will discuss the issue again on Thursday and decide the future course of action on the matter. This issue was first taken by Allahabad high court in 2012 by the Emerald court residents welfare association. On April 11, 2014, the high court ordered the demolition of two towers, observing that they stood too close to each other.
