The Supreme Court asked Noida and Greater Noida authorities Tuesday to grant completion certificates to thousands of harassed homebuyers residing in various Amrapali Projects in compliance with its verdict and warned that the officials concerned will be sent to jail if they fail to do so. It also said that project-wise list of homebuyers be provided to both the authorities within three days.
The top court warned that officials posted at the authorities for more than 10 years will be in trouble if its orders are not complied with. A bench of Justices Arun Mishra and U U Lalit was informed by advocate Ravindra Kumar, appearing for the authorities, that they have started complying with the apex court’s July 23 verdict and have constituted a special cell to handover the completion certificates. Kumar said the authorities do not have a project wise list of homebuyers who are residing in the Amrapali Projects.
“Project wise list to be provided to Noida and Greater Noida authorities with respect to the people who are already staying in such projects,” the court ordered. Further, it warned: “You have to implement our orders or you know the repercussions. Officers who are there for last ten years are in trouble. We don’t want to say much but we know has happened there. At least 20 per cent of such employees will be in trouble. If our orders are not complied with, the concerned officials will be sent to jail.”
