A few nice old pics. I found of Fiat taxis- and one of a pair of Jawa bikes- in Bombay in the '70s!

Note the neat chequered 'taxi' design on the C-pillar of this 1100D/President taxi!

The page in the last link also features this youtube video shot in Bombay in 1972- note the taxis seem to have 'wartime' white paint on the edges of their fenders and bumpers - similar to the rules during WW2- could this have been the aftermath of the '71 war?

Thanks Srinand. Such pretty TVS coaches were gone long before my era!

I believe it is a Bedford C521 with a Duple body, ca 1956. Will post a photo tonight.
