Mumbai's iconic 'Premier Padmini' taxis retiring after 6 decades
After gracing the city's streets for six decades, Mumbai's iconic Premier Padmini taxis, fondly referred to as "Kaali-Peeli" by locals, will officially be taken off the roads on Monday. The last Premier Padmini was reportedly registered in 2003, at the Tardeo Regional Transport Office (RTO). Its owner Abdul Kareem Karsekar describes it as his life and the "pride of Mumbai." Notably, the 20-year age limit imposed on cabs in the metro city ended their journey.
