Maruti Suzuki India Limited (MSIL) on Thursday announced it has undertaken a new initiative to train drivers under the Haryana Skill Development Mission (HSDM). It is to be noted that the objective of Maruti Suzuki India is to make country’s youth employable. Under the program, as many as 800 candidates will be trained.

In a statement, the automaker stated that training will be conducted at Maruti Suzuki operated Institute of Driving & Traffic Research (IDTR) at Bahadurgarh and at Rohtak. “Maruti Suzuki’s association with Haryana Skill Development Mission is targeted to create a pool of better vehicle drivers and make the roads safer in the state,” it added.

“The project for driver training of light motor vehicles also aims to impart good driving behaviour. The candidates would be provided the opportunity to understand various aspects of driving-fatigue and stress management, developing the right attitude, controlling road rage and sensitive situations, respect for other road users and preventive maintenance of vehicles,” the statement noted.

Maruti Suzuki India Limited Executive Advisor Ajay Kumar Tomer said, “Maruti Suzuki’s collaboration with Haryana Government is to make the Haryana local youth employable with good driving skills.

This skill training and behavioral change is important to make our roads safer.”

Raj Nehru, Mission Director-Haryana Skill Development Mission, Government of Haryana said, “We are extremely glad to be working together with Maruti Suzuki to impart LMV (Light Motor Vehicle) driving training to the youth through the IDTRs. Through the skill development training, youth can access skilled employment opportunities and set up self-employment ventures to help them attain a sustainable livelihood and better quality of life.”
