Responding to a contempt of court filed by rival Ola cabs in the Delhi High Court, Uber informed presiding judge Justice JR Midha that it had not added any new diesel taxis to its fleet and the 293 cabs still on its rolls did not provide point to point services within Delhi.

Ola had claimed that Uber was flouting the high court's directive ordering both companies to switch to CNG powered fleets by March 31,2016 and that Uber was still adding adding and plying diesel vehicles in Delhi.

The next hearing in the case is scheduled for March 15.
