A two-judge bench of the apex court, headed by Justice Arun Mishra and comprising of Justice Uday U Lalit, warned the Noida and Greater Noida authorities that their officers will be taken into a task if there is any delay on their part in handing over possession of flats to homebuyers.

Noida and Greater Noida authorities told the top court that they had created a special cell to handle the cases arising out in the case of Amrapali homebuyers and officials have been designated to ensure that the court's order should comply with true spirit.
