Agitating cab drivers on Tuesday blocked traffic at DND Flyway for about 45 minutes protesting against action by enforcement agencies following the Supreme Court’s decision to ban diesel taxis in Delhi.
“Traffic was today affected for 45 minutes from 9.45 am to 10.30 am. Traffic was affected yesterday for 20 minutes as well,” DND flyway spokesperson Anwar Abbasi said.
District magistrate NP Singh had issued directions to all IT, other companies and transporters to get diesel cabs converted to CNG as otherwise as per Supreme Court order they would not be able to ply from May 1.
Over 20,000 cabs are running for companies in Noida, ferrying their employees. The companies are making alternate arrangements and have asked employees to use Metro and other modes of transportation till the issue is resolved.
