While the residents, their vehicles and pets had to be moved out by 7 am, private security and other staff will also be removed from the two societies by 1 pm, the officials added. The demolition of the two illegally built towers is scheduled for 2.30 pm.
Meanwhile, authorities have constructed a ‘green corridor’ to prepare for any medical emergencies in the case of any mishap. Officials are conducting drills with ambulances in preparation of the demolition, sources said.

The structures, deemed unlawfully constructed by the Supreme Court, will be demolished at 2:30 pm on August 28, Sunday.
