50% Cut in Entry Fee for Senior Citizens at Tourism Centres in Kerala

The Kerala government has announced a 50% concession in the entry fee for senior citizens in all state-run tourism centres. The concession follows a recommendation by the Committee on Welfare of Senior Citizens of the Kerala Legislature for the period 2016-19.

Senior citizens’ welfare bodies and the community members themselves have been demanding this for a long time. 

The Covid-19 pandemic and its restrictions had hampered the social well-being of senior citizens. “This decision is part of elderly-friendly policies across all sectors in the state. This will encourage senior citizens to mix with society and feel relaxed after keeping indoors during the pandemic,” said Tourism Minister Mr P. A. Mohammed Riyas. Around 20% of the total Kerala population is above the age of 60.
