No Petrol Or Diesel Cabs In NCR From Tomorrow


New Delhi: No petrol- or diesel-run taxis will be allowed to ply in the National Capital Region from Sunday, May 1, the Supreme Court said today. The top court today also refused to extend the deadline of April 30 for taxis to convert into CNG.

Taxi owners pleaded before the court that there’s no technology available in the market to convert a diesel car into one that uses CNG. “We gave sufficient time for private taxis to convert to CNG and we are not inclined to extend the deadline,” the apex court told the private taxi operators.
