The residents of Emerald Court have complained of dust pollution and several other issues. US Teotia, RWA president of Supertech's Emerald Court said that the residents are forced to live with covered balconies for the last four months due to preparation for the demolition work and have been using the basement for entry/exit.

"The demolition has been extended for three months. The entry of three of our towers has been closed for the last four months and the residents have been using the basement for entry/exit. Their balconies have been covered up and this will continue for three more months due to the extension," said Teotia.

He added that the construction quality of at least five towers is of very poor quality and the RWA had already written multiple letters to the Noida Authority in this regard but is yet to hear from them. Teotia said that the buildings require immediate repair and the residents are living amid panic fearing any adverse impact from demolition.
