The Supreme Court on Wednesday passed a slew of orders to check pollution in Delhi.

Here are the top five orders of the Supreme Court.

1. SC bans registration of diesel-run SUVs and cars having engines beyond 2000 cc in Delhi and NCR from March 1, next year.

2. SC raises by 100 per cent the Green cess being levied on commercial vehicles entering Delhi.

3. Commercial vehicles, which are not Delhi bound, will not be allowed to enter national capital through entry points NH-8 and NH-1.
