Hundreds of taxi drivers protested in New Delhi on May 2 against a ban on diesel cabs, the latest initiative aimed at improving air quality in the world's most polluted capital. India's top court on April 30 ordered taxis run on the dirty fuel off the city's roads, refusing industry requests for more time to switch to greener compressed natural gas (CNG).
