GNIDA Asks Supertech To Seal 1009 Units In Czar Housing Project


Published on: Apr 26, 2016 @ 14:50

The  Greater  Noida  Industrial  Development  Authority  (GNIDA)  has asked  the  Realty  firm Supertech  to  seal  1,009  units  at  its  housing  project  ‘Czar’  in  Greater  Noida  for  allegedly constructing  them  without  approval.  The  notice  was  issued  to  Supertech  on  April  11, 2016, in  this  regard.  The  company  has  been  given  30  days  to implement  it.

GNIDA  claims  that  the  company  had  permission  for  just  844  housing  units  at  Czar,  but built  15  residential towers  with  a  total  of  1,853  units  in  this  20-acre  township  housing  project.  The  authority  had  asked  the  builder  to  seal  all  extra  housing  units  developed  by  it  beyond  the  sanctioned  844  units.

Supertech,  however,  claimed  that  all  the  1,853  units  which  are  either   ready  or  being constructed  on  the  20-acre  township  Czar  housing  project  are  not  unauthorised  and  are “completely  safe  and  legal”.  It  denied violating  any  rule  and  claimed  that  it  had  applied  to  purchase  additional  floor  area  ratio  ( FAR)  from  the  authority  in  2014  and  submitted revised  building  plans  for  sanction.

GNIDA  said  sanctions  could  not  be  sought  in  retrospect  as  construction  cannot  be  carried  out  first  and  sanctions  applied  for  later.

Supertech   claimed  that  the  request  was  made  in  consonance  with  the  prevailing  rules and regulations applicable  to  GNIDA. The  excess  units  are  well  within  the  permissible limit and fully  covered  under  a notification  issued  by  the  UP  government  on  April  4, 2016,  it  added. It claims  that  the  matter  is  expected  to  be  resolved  shortly  and  there  was  no  need  for  buyers  to  panic.

This  is  the   second  such  case  for  Supertech  in  the  last  two  years. In  April  2014,  the Allahabad  High  Court had  asked  it  to  demolish   two  40-storey  residential  towers  in  Supertech’s  Emerald  Court  housing  project  in Noida  as  the  company  had  built  some  extra  floors  than  permissible  limit. Supertech  has  challenged  the  order in  the Supreme  court,  where  the  matter  is  pending.

But  it  has  been  a  huge  blow  and  shocking  to  those  home  buyers  who  bought  properties  there  and  find  their lifetime  saving  investment  suddenly  at  risk. All  the  concerned  parties  including  the  authorities  and  the  builder  must  share  the  blame  and  the  rights  of  the  concerned  homebuyers  must  be  protected.  The  home  buyers  should  not  be  made  subject  to  any  kind  of  harassment  and  pay  the  price   for  no  faults  of  theirs.
