INSTITUTE OF DRIVING, TECHNICAL TRAINING &
The Government of the Gujarat is conscious of the lack of
adequate technical education for the students, particularly in the tribal
areas, which can help them in finding suitable jobs & placement in the
private sector. The steep growth in the automobile industry in the last
decade has opened a large opportunity for employment in the automobile
& associated service industry. It also opens opportunity in the
professional LMV and HMV driving as a major source of employment.
At the same time, the existing traffic sense and knowledge is poor
because of absence of professional training facilities, resulting in a large
number of accidents on the roads. The Department of Tribal
Development, Govt. of Gujarat has undertaken the task of devising
means to effectively channelize the human talent available and train them
in technical courses and as professional drivers as also inculcating in
drivers a sense of respect and responsibility towards life, liberty and
property of individuals on road as well as improve their driving skills. As
part of this endeavor the Department proposes to established a Technical
& driving training Institute at a suitable location on N H 8, close to
The Deptt. of Tribal Development, however feels that such an
institute can be better managed under a public private partnership system.
This will ensure that the professionalism required to prepare the trainees
for jobs would be better provided by a private organization.
Maruti Udyog Limited has been in the past participating actively
in helping a number of states particularly Delhi & Haryana to handle the
menace of traffic hazard and pollution. As part of this social endeavor,
MUL has set up two institutes in Delhi under the name & style of
Institute of Driving Training & Research. They have also signed an MOU
to set up two similar institutes in Haryana, and setting up of these
institutes is in progress. Besides, the company is also at an advanced
stage of finalizing such institutes in Uttaranchal, Himachal Pradesh &
Bihar. They, when approached by the Department of Tribal Development,
Govt. of Gujarat, have conveyed their willingness to set up a Society
under the Societies Registration Act 1860 which will run and manage
Government the proposed institute.
Accordingly, a Memorandum of Understanding can be signed
between the Deptt. of Welfare and MUL for the above purpose, for the
project to start off.
A Management Agreement for running the institute can be subsequently
signed between the Society set up by MUL and Govt. of Gujarat, under
which MUL will set and have Management Control of the Institute. MUL
will provide expertise and exposure to the trainees of the area,
particularly to the weaker sections and ladies thus helping in employment
generation and upliftment of the weaker sections of society.
