    Chennai: Planning a refreshing escape to the scenic hill stations of Ooty and Kodaikanal this summer? Remember to factor in a new requirement – an e-pass! To regulate tourist influx and ensure a smooth experience for all, the Madras High Court has mandated an e-pass system for vehicles entering these popular destinations. 

    Here’s what you need to know: 

    • Dates to Remember: The e-pass system will be effective from May 7th, 2024, to June 30th, 2024. 
    • Who Needs an E-Pass: This requirement applies solely to tourist vehicles. Local residents are exempt. 
    • Benefits of the System: The e-pass system will streamline traffic flow and aid the district administrations in collecting valuable data on tourist volume and vehicle types. This information will be crucial for future planning and infrastructure development. 
    • Obtaining an E-Pass: While the exact process for acquiring an e-pass is yet to be announced, authorities anticipate it will be a straightforward online application. We’ll update you as soon as details regarding the application portal and procedure become available. 
    • Exemptions and Future Considerations: While there’s no limit on the number of e-passes issued, the possibility of integrating the system with a payment gateway in the future is being explored. This could help manage visitor numbers and ensure a sustainable tourist experience in these ecologically sensitive regions. 

    Planning a Trip to Ooty and Kodaikanal? Stay Informed! 

    Keep an eye on official government websites and tourist information portals for the latest updates on the e-pass application process. With a little advanced planning and your e-pass secured, you can look forward to a delightful summer escapade in the beautiful hill stations of Ooty and Kodaikanal!
