In 2016, the Himachal Pradesh Government started issuing permits online to limit the vehicles to prevent pollution in this area.
Permits are issued only to the first 800 petrol vehicles and 400 diesel vehicles.
Permits can only be applied for next 2 days from the current date.
Also, no permits are issued on Tuesday as the day is marked for maintenance of Rohtang.
This tax of Rs. 500 is to be paid on daily basis and accordingly the permits are issued based on daily quota defined by National Green Tribunal (NGT).
The tourism permit is valid for one day only (to & fro).
Mandatory information required for Rohtang Pass Permit :
- Valid ID Proof
- Valid Pollution Under Check (PUC) Certificate
- Vehicle Registration Date (Age of vehicle not to be more than 10 yrs).
You can apply for the permit on the Himachal Pradesh official website.
