Edifice Engineering, the company which has been roped in to demolish the twin towers in Noida Sector 93 A on May 22 on the order of the Supreme Court, will take more than two months to bring down the structures, sources said.

“There will be a more than a two month delay. It is taking a long time to prepare the buildings as they are very strong. The company does not want to go ahead with the demolition until it is satisfied about the preparations. It is for this reason that an extension has been requested for by the engineering firm,” sources said, adding that the Edifice has written to the builder for an extension.

Noida Authority, however, said that it will not be able to extend the timeline.

“We are not proposing any delay. The demolition agency has written to the builder to extend it by three more months but the builder has not written or spoken to us. We will not be giving any extension. We selected the agency basis certain commitments and timelines. The builder is responsible for carrying out the demolition on the directions of the court. We have to monitor so we had to finalise the agency but that was on the commitment of timelines,” Ritu Maheshwari, chief executive officer of Noida Authority, told Moneycontrol.
