The Supreme Court on Wednesday asked public sector undertaking NBCC (India) to examine whether the distance between two disputed building towers at realty major Supertech’s Emerald Court Complex in Noida was in accordance with building regulations.
The bench of Justice Dipak Misra and Justice Rohinton Fali Nariman gave NBCC four weeks’ time to examine the distance between the two towers, which have been held illegal and directed to be demolished by the Allahabad High Court.
The court was also informed that in compliance with its July 25 order, the realty major has deposited Rs 5 crore with the court’s registry.
Meanwhile, the court asked the realty major to tell if some people who have sought refund of their money had booked the flats or not in the disputed towers.
As senior counsel Gopal Subramaniam urged the court to issue notice on their application and allow the realty major to file response, the court said “You have to just tell us whether they have booked the flat or not. You have to pay them their money.”
The court fixed the next hearing on August 9.
