NEW DELHI — India's top court issued several orders Wednesday to fight record pollution in the capital, including a temporary ban on the sale of large diesel vehicles and a stiff levy on trucks entering the city.

The Supreme Court ordered sales of all diesel vehicles with an engine capacity of more than 2,000cc to be halted for the next three months in New Delhi and nearby suburbs. It also banned trucks from entering the capital if they're over 10 years old or are transiting through the city.
