Chennai Corporation Implements Online System for Road Cut Permissions

The Chennai Corporation has introduced an online system for granting permission to cut roads for essential civic services such as water supply, electricity, and telecommunications. The move aims to regulate road cuts and address the resulting traffic congestion in the city.

Residents seeking permission for road cuts are now required to submit applications online at The civic body has emphasized that applications will no longer be accepted at the regional or zonal offices, and all permissions will be granted exclusively through the online platform.

The decision comes in response to numerous road cuts conducted by various agencies to provide services to residents, leading to an increase in traffic-related issues. The recent heavy rains have further exacerbated road damages caused by excessive road-cutting activities.
