India's Supreme Court, cracking down on chemical and carbon fumes threatening the Taj Mahal, ordered almost 300 coal-based industries in its vicinity to close by the end of 1997.

The court, delivering a judgment in a public interest case, also ordered officials to cut off coke and coal supplies to the industries in the area around the monument.
