Illegal Noida twin towers demolished finally. The Supertech highrises were brought down in seconds. This was India’s biggest demolition of illegal towers. The 100-metre-tall structures, ordered to be demolished by the Supreme Court due to violation of norms, were razed to the ground in nine seconds with the implosion waterfall technique. Residents from the adjacent housing societies were evacuated earlier.

After much anticipation and a nine-year-long legal battle, the Supertech twin towers of Noida were finally demolished at 2:30 pm on Sunday with a thunderous blast. Around 3,700 kg of explosives have been infused into the two towers.

Close to 500 police and traffic personnel have been deployed around Supertech’s twin towers in Noida and the Noida-Greater Noida Expressway will remain shut between 2.15 pm and 2.45 pm for the demolition drive. A no-fly zone was instated over the city for drones and The air space within one nautical mile radius above the blast will also remain briefly unavailable for flights during demolition time, according to Noida Authority.

Meanwhile, Realty firm Supertech on Sunday said that the twin towers were conducted as per the building plan approved by Noida development authorities and no deviations were made, news agency PTI reported. Supertech added that the demolition of these two towers will not impact its other real estate projects, which will be delivered to homebuyers. The towers — Ceyane (29 floors) and Apex (32 floors) — are part of the Emerald Court project of Supertech Ltd and were found to be in violation of multiple regulations regarding construction. They will be demolished via a ‘controlled implosion’, which means it will collapse after explosives are strategically placed and detonated to ensure minimal damage to the surroundings.
