Dindigul District Collector Vijaya Lakshmi has recently declared that tourism activities will resume in Tamil Nadu’s hill town Kodaikanal. Due to the pandemic, the hill station had to remain shut for the past few months.
E-pass is mandatory for tourists travelling from other districts of Tamil Nadu
Lakshmi stated that identity proof is necessary for tourists within the Dindigul district. Furthermore, e-pass is mandatory for tourists coming from other districts of the state.
Chettiar Park, Bryant Park, and Rose Park in Kodaikanal has been reopened for tourists to visit. As a part of a concession, the Tamil Nadu government has allowed metro trains in Chennai to resume operations. It has also allowed the operation of inter-district passenger trains in the state.
Though the government has stopped the e-pass system for inter-state and intra-state road travels, e-pass is still a mandatory requirement for visitors travelling to Kodaikanal, Ooty, Yercaud, and Nilgiris.
