Additionally, the court refused to extend the deadline for the conversion of private diesel taxis into CNG. Only CNG taxis will be allowed to ply on Delhi roads from May 1. Cabs with all-India permits are exempt from the order though.

A number of cab operators and their associations urged the court for an extension of the deadline, but a bench comprising Chief Justice T.S. Thakur, Justice A.K. Sikri and Justice R. Banumati refused the request.
The apex court had initially asked the diesel cab operators in the NCR to switch over to CNG by March 1. That deadline was later extended to March 31 and then to April 30.
