July 4, 2024, Noida, Uttar Pradesh, India , On July 3, 2024, the Noida authority granted approval for Unitech Group’s pending housing projects by endorsing the layout maps, potentially bringing relief to thousands of homebuyers who have endured a decade-long wait. Following a directive from the Supreme Court on April 26, 2024, this approval allows construction to resume without the need for prior dues clearance, addressing a significant issue impacting more than 5,500 homebuyers.

Thousands of homebuyers could soon have hope as Noida authority has given the green light to key layout designs for Unitech’s delayed projects, clearing the path for project finishing and handover.

The Noida authority approved Unitech’s stalled housing projects’ layout maps on July 3, 2024, following the Supreme Court’s orders from April 26, 2024. The approved area covers 246 acres of land in sectors 96, 97, 98, 113, and 117, with 197 acres remaining vacant. This decision marks a significant advance in addressing the prolonged delays affecting more than 5,500 homebuyers.

Lokesh M, CEO of Noida authority, stated, “We have approved the layout of incomplete housing projects in Noida on the orders of the Supreme Court.”

Affected projects such as Amber, Burgundy, Willows, Unihomes, Exquisite, The Residences, Uniworld, and Gardens are in progress. More than 5,500 homebuyers, some waiting for over ten years, are looking forward to expedited home completion and delivery after approval. The Supreme Court has split Unitech’s land into two parts: one with assigned flats and plots, and the other with vacant land for future projects.

Noida Authority Data and Statistics:

  • Total Unitech land: 443 acres
  • Approved layout: 246 acres
  • Vacant land: 197 acres
  • Unitech’s dues: Nearly ₹11,000 crore
  • Total affected homebuyers: Over 5,500

Unitech can start building again after getting the required environmental approvals. The Supreme Court will make decisions about the empty land and the unpaid amount of nearly ₹11,000 crore later on. This approval means there is a chance for new construction on the empty land, which could help finish the current projects.
