SIT to look at 'end-to-end movement' of Supertech twin towers case, Real Estate News, ET RealEstate
NOIDA: The four-member SIT will look at “end-to-end movement” of the Supertech twin towers file and documents on decisions related to it from 2004, when land was allotted for the project, to 2021 and not just the years when approvals for revised building plans were given, said officials involved in Monday;s meeting after the head of the SIT reached the city.

The Noida Authority had allocated land to the real estate group in November 2004. Eight years later, in December 2012, the RWA of Emerald Court moved the Allahabad high court against the twin towers. The court ruled in the favour of the RWA in April 2014 and ordered the demolition of the towers, which the Supreme Court upheld last week.

Apart from examining decisions from 2009 to 2012 when the height of the twin towers was raised twice, the SIT will also focus on the response filed in the high court by then Authority officials and the affidavit the officials had submitted to justify the amendments of the amended plans.

Responses of officials deputed in the planning, group housing and legal divisions up to August 4 this year will be scanned as well.

In a scathing rebuke during the course of the hearing, the Supreme Court had called Noida Authority a corrupt body that had been toeing builder’s line.

“The comments of the top court tainted the image of the Noida Authority. Though the apex court had put a stay on the high court order, Noida Authority officials should have taken corrective measures instead of continuing to oppose the RWA,” said a senior government officer in Lucknow who is following up with the SIT on the progress of the case.
