SIT begins probe, asks for old Noida files and records, Real Estate News, ET RealEstate
NOIDA: The special investigation team (SIT) formed by the UP government to fix responsibility of officials in allowing the construction of Supertech’s twin towers at Emerald Court began work on Friday by summoning records and old files from the Noida Authority offices. The SIT members are expected to visit the city next week.

While that investigation is on, Noida officials will soon begin talks with officials at the Central Building Research Institute (CBRI) to coordinate on preparations to bring down the twin towers, which the Supreme Court ordered demolished earlier this week. The court had directed Noida to consult CBRI for the demolition.

The SIT, meanwhile, is expected to record statements from seven serving and retired officials who have been named in Noida’s own inquiry as employees directly linked to the approvals given to the twin towers.

“It is not appropriate to say that all seven who played a role in amending the building plans were responsible for the entire chain of events. Without backing from higher-ups, nobody can toss the rulebook into the dustbin,” said an officer involved in the Noida probe.

Officials who stonewalled efforts of the Emerald Court RWA, which fought the legal battle against the twin towers, by not responding to RTI queries have not been identified so far. The engineering section, which at that time was known as civil construction division, did not verify whether revised building plans and maps were displayed at the site.

Noida Authority officials at the time also did not respond to reminders from the chief fire officer of Gautam Budh Nagar about the permissible height of the twin towers and minimum distance required between the towers.
