New Delhi: The Allahabad High Court ordered the demolition of high rise building projects in the Patwari village of Greater Noida area within two months from now, according to TV reports. Itahara and Tugalpur are another two villages affected by the order.

Amrapali, Jagat Taran and Supertech projects were among the builders who built the property on illegal land, the court observed.

According to TV reports, the building projects were built on cremation area (Shmashaan ghat) and were deemed illegal by the High Court. These areas are community areas and shouldn’t have commercial properties.

Vijay Trivedi, chief of Noida Extension Flat Owners Association, expressed shock and said it was a lot for him to process at the moment. He further cited concerns of the common people who have invested in the property and bought it after paying big amount.

Trivedi stated that people were paying loans and its EMIs for five years now and questioned what were the authorities doing till now. The association chief, speaking to a TV channel, said that the owners were kept in dark about the legality and builders or authorities were at fault.

Earlier, Supertech was accused of violating environmental norms due to one of its projects situated next to the Okhla Bird santcuary in Noida.

In July, Supertech was asked to refund money to flat owners, by the Supreme Court, who had booked apartments in its two 40-storeyed buildings in Emerald Court project in Noida.

Allahabad High Court, in another ruling earlier this April, had also ordered the demolition of the two Supertech towers over flouting of building norms and the refund of money to apartment buyers. However, the Supreme Court had later stayed the demolition but ashe’d Supertech nof to sell or transfer the flats.
