NEW DELHI, April 30: The Supreme Court on Saturday refused to give more time to taxi operators in the tiol Capital Region (NCR) to switch from diesel to the cleaner compressed tural gas (CNG).

The deadline for the change, which has been extended twice, is Saturday.

A number of cab operators and their associations urged the court for an extension of the deadline, but a bench of Chief Justice T.S. Thakur, Justice A.K. Sikri and Justice R. Banumati refused the request.

The apex court, by its December 16, 2015 order, had initially asked the diesel cab operators in Delhi to switch over to CNG by March 1. However, by its January 5, 2016 order, the court, bringing all the diesel taxis operating in the NCR in the ambit of its December 16 order, extended the deadline to March 31. (IANS)
