The Supreme Court has restricted transit entry for heavy commercial vehicles into Delhi from four more points: NH 2, NH 10, NH 58, and State Highway 57. The ban will be applicable to vehicles not bound for Delhi.

Earlier on December 16, 2015 the Supreme Court had banned the transit entry of trucks and commercial vehicles into Delhi at two entry points - via NH 1 and NH 8, that is from Karnal Road and the Jaipur-Delhi highway. Now the ban will include entry points like Loni, Ghaziabad and Faridabad.

In its December 16 order, the Supreme Court had also prohibited the sale and registration of diesel vehicles with an engine capacity of 2,000cc and above. The apex court had also doubled the environmental compensation charge (ECC) for loaded commercial vehicles entering Delhi.

The court had also ruled that no commercial vehicle registered prior to 2005 would be allowed to enter Delhi and all taxis are to switch over to CNG by March 1.
