The demolition of the twin towers cost nearly Rs 20 crore as it required a lot of explosives, manpower and equipment.

Around 3,700 kg of explosives were used to raze the twin towers. The explosives used for demolition included dynamite, emulsions and plastic explosives.

The twin 40-storey towers (Apex and Ceyane) were located in Sector 93A of Noida, near the Noida-Greater Noida Expressway. There were 915 flats in these two towers.

During the demolition drive, the residents of the adjacent buildings were moved to safer places. Over 5,000 residents of Emerald Court and ATS Village will return only after safety clearance.

The airspace was closed for about 30 minutes and road traffic was also diverted.
