Tourism Boost: Operators To Get All-India Tourist Permit Within 30 Days Of Applying Online

New Delhi: Come April, all-India tourist permits will be provided to operators within 30 days of online application submission.

The new rules will be applicable from April 1, 2021.

The Ministry of Road Transport and Highways (MoRTH) said on Sunday that under the scheme, any tourist vehicle operator can apply for an ‘All India Tourist Authorization/Permit’ through online mode.

After relevant documents are submitted and fees deposited, the permit will be issued within 30 days of submission of the application, MoRTH said in a statement.

The new rules, known as, ‘All India Tourist Vehicles Authorization and Permit Rules, 2021’. Will come into effect from April 1.

However, the existing permits will continue to be in force during their validity.

“The new rules for permits are expected to go a long way in promoting tourism across States in our country, while simultaneously, growing the revenue of state governments,” the statement said.

“Moreover, the scheme allows flexibility in the form of authorization/permit being granted, for a period of three months or its multiples thereof, not exceeding three years at a time,” it further stated.
