GREATER NOIDA: Three days after the Allahabad high court had directed the Greater Noida Industrial Development Authority (GNIDA) to seal any surplus residential units constructed by the developer in Supertech Czar Suites group housing project in Greater Noida, the GNIDA sealed 124 units in the project on Friday.
The court had, in its order dated April 18, observed that it “was not satisfied with the details provided by the developer (Supertech) as the developer had not given the correct facts and figures with regard to the flats already allotted and in possession of allottees or how many flats not yet allotted.”
According to GNIDA officials, the decision to seal these residential flats and units was taken following the court’s directions. Officials from the planning, group housing and projects department reached the society around 1.30pm on Friday and started the procedure of sealing the units. They sealed about 124 units — 40 villas and 84 flats.
“The process will continue on Saturday until all the units are sealed. These units are vacant and not occupied currently. We have to seal a total of 1,064 units,” an official said. “We have complied with the court’s directions. Our action taken report along with our detailed findings about the project will be filed in our reply during the next court hearing, which is on May 2, 2017,” the official said.
In February this year also, the GNIDA had started the procedure of sealing 382 residential flats and villas in Supertech Czar Suites group housing project. At the time they had sealed a total of 37 units. Officials at the time had said that they had conducted a survey to determine how many units had been constructed without permission, their area and numbers. After matching it with their records, officials had found 382 units had been constructed in violation of their permissions, hence the Authority had decided to seal them. The flats and villas that were sealed were vacant.
When contacted, R K Arora CMD Supertech Group, said that the developer had not violated any building norms. “GNIDA officials have illegally sealed these units, which already have third party rights as they are sold units,” he told TOI.
“We have constructed the additional units under question after purchasing additional floor area ratio (FAR) from GNIDA in December 2014,” Arora said. “We have followed all the norms and have submitted the same in the court. We will again submit this in the court on the next date of hearing in May to get due justice,” he said.
