The nearly 100-meter-tall Supertech's twin towers in Noida were on Sunday (August 28, 2022) razed down, making them the tallest structures yet in India to be demolished.

The structures at Noida's Emerald Court Project of Sector 93A, which were taller than Delhi's Qutub Minar, were brought down in less than 15 seconds.

Over 3,700 kg of explosives were used to bring down the structures in pursuance of a Supreme Court order that found their construction within the Emerald Court society premises in violation of norms.

Chetan Dutta, a 49-year-old Indian blaster, pressed the button to bring down the Supertech's twin towers. Dutta, who hails from Hisar in Haryana, had earlier expressed that "it's like a dream come true" for him to demolish the tall structures.

It was the first residential tower for which Dutta acted as a blaster.
