New Delhi: The Supreme Court today directed Noida and Greater Noida authorities to start registration of flats in favour of Amrapali homebuyers.
The apex court has warned that their officers will be sent to jail, if there is any delay on their parts in handing over possession.
Both authorities told the top court that they have created special cell to deal with the cases of Amrapali homebuyers and the order will be complied.
Last month, the court had cancelled the registration of the embattled Amrapali group under the Real Estate Regulatory Authority over the delayed completion of as many as 42,000 flats. The lease of the properties was then granted to the Noida and Greater Noida authorities.
Earlier, in its July judgement, the Apex court had said that the home buyers will pay only towards the completion of their houses and they cannot be burdened with the loans Amrapali owed either to the authorities or the banks. It had also said that only assets of the Amrapali functionaries that stand attached under the orders of the court can be recovered.
The Enforcement Directorate was also ordered to investigate into the aspect of money laundering and submit periodic reports to the court.
