The government is working out on a proposal submitted by Nation Skill Development Corporation (NSDC), which insists that if a person pays challan of or over Rs 1000 should be sent to a driver training school for next five days, mandatorily under the law.
Considering that driving a car is an important skill, NSDC is also working out a model to build driver training institutes on the request put forward by online cab aggregators - Ola and Uber.
"We have presented this proposal to Police where I have discussed the idea personally with high ranking officials in the department. Apart from this, the proposal has been presented to the Ministry of Skill Development and Entrepreneurship," Manish Kumar, managing director and chief executive officer of NSDC told BW Businessworld. "Ola and Uber had also come to NSDC requesting the need for trained drivers," Kumar said.
According to the official data, in 2016, over 91 lakh traffic violations were raised by the police, an increase of around 15 lakh cases compared to the previous year.
NSDC is a private public partnership body between the government and the private sector, created with an objective to promote skill development in the country. The idea presented by the corporation aims to create a business model for skilled individuals who want to open driver training institutes.
