On January 11, the Allahabad high court had directed GNIDA not to issue completion certificates to the project and take appropriate action against the builder for constructing residential units in violation of sanctioned building plans.
The Greater Noida Industrial Development Authority on Monday started sealing 382 flats and villas allegedly built in violation of permissions at Supertech Czar Suites in Greater Noida.
On January 11, the Allahabad high court had directed GNIDA not to issue completion certificates to the project and take appropriate action against the builder for constructing residential units in violation of sanctioned building plans. The action came just two days ahead of the next date of hearing in the case on February 8.
According to officials, the decision to seal the residential flats and villas was taken following a detailed scrutiny and measurements for setback area, parking spaces, built-up area and residential unit size in the society located in Omicron 1. “Teams from the architecture and planning department collected physical details of the number of units the builder has built as part of the project and those sanctioned as per layout plans approved by GNIDA,” Deepak Agarwal, chief executive officer, GNIDA told TOI. “A survey was conducted to determine how many have been constructed without permission, their area and numbers. We have found that 382 units have been constructed in violation of our permissions.”
None of the flats being sealed is occupied. On Monday, around 11am, GNIDA officials reached the society. They sealed nearly 30 villas during the day. “The process will continue on Tuesday and till all the units are sealed. These units are vacant and not occupied currently,” the CEO said. “We have complied with the court’s directions. Our action-taken report, along with our detailed findings, will be filed in our reply during the next hearing, which is on February 8,” he added.
HC, on January 11, directed GNIDA to send an officer during the next hearing to assist the judges with facts of the case.
R K Arora, CMD, Supertech Group, said the company had not violated any building norm and denied the units were being sealed by GNIDA.
