The demolition of these two “twin towers” is an extraordinary example of the authorities’ determination against corrupt developers and bureaucrats.

Last year, the Supreme Court had ruled that the developers in collaboration with the local bodies had constructed the buildings illegally.

The 32 floors of “Apex” and 29 floors of “Cheyenne” collapsed in seconds amidst a huge cloud of dust, containing a thousand flats that had remained uninhabited in the nine-year legal battle.

The controlled explosion, thanks to 3,700 kg of explosives, took place in Noida, southeast of New Delhi. According to local media, this is the biggest demolition ever recorded in India.

Thousands of neighbors and stray dogs were evacuated as a precaution before the explosion.

India, Asia’s third largest economy with 1.4 billion people, is experiencing the world’s fastest growing economy and has experienced a boom in the construction industry in recent years.

Unscrupulous real estate developers, in search of huge profits, lower construction costs with impunity and benefit from inadequate regulations.

Companies sometimes build additional platforms or towers using substandard materials, while officials are bribed to turn a blind eye.

In the worst case scenario for them, these builders end up paying fines, or simply abandon the unfinished work.

In the suburbs of Delhi, Noida and Greater Noida, it is estimated that more than 100 residential towers have been abandoned, littering the landscape and making these areas look like dark ghost towns.
