Noida: The quality of construction of Supertech Capetown, a highrise residential society in Sector 74, Noida, will be inspected by the Central Building Research Institute (CBRI).
After several requests of CapeTown AOA and complaints from residents, the Additional Chief Executive Officer (ACEO), Noida, Neha Sharma has written a letter to the Director of CBRI, Roorkee for an audit of Capetown on September 29.
According to the residents of Capetown, incidents of plaster fall, lift mishaps, water leakage in the basement have been common in society.
Many complaints of such incidents were sent to the Chief Executive Officer (CEO), Noida, District Magistrate and Police Commissioner in the past for appropriate action on the builder and construction quality check.
The Noida Authority officials had visited Capetown on January 5 and 7 this year to investigate and they had highlighted several major lapses in their investigation and submitted a report on January 11 and gave 15 days to the builder to rectify them but the builder did not rectify the issues of the building.
On February 3, taking prompt action on the request letter written by Capetown AOA, CEO Noida had ordered an inquiry into the incomplete facilities and construction faults of the Capetown project to IIT Delhi, but the IIT Delhi team did not investigate it, nor did the builder came to the society to rectify the deficiencies.
AOA President Arun Sharma said, “CBRI is the most prestigious institution of the Government of India, which has recently been appointed to the Emerald Court on the orders of the Supreme Court. In order to avoid any kind of loss of life and property, the authority will have to take prompt action by conducting a forensic audit of Capetown and remove the shortcomings of construction without any further delay, otherwise the authority, government and builder will have to take responsibility for any major accident.”
