Maruti to more than double driving schools to 400

The country's largest car-maker Maruti Suzuki India today said it is aiming to more than double its driving schools to 400 over the next 2-3 years to train larger number of people on road safety.

The company has already trained 10 lakh people in the last decade, out of which 5 lakh have been trained under its flagship programme -- National Road Safety Mission (NRSM), which was launched in December 2008."
At present the company has 192 driving schools and 6 Institutes of driving and Traffic Research (IDTR).
Mr. Mayank Pareek said, : "In terms of fatalities, around 1,60,000 lives are lost annually in road accidents. As the automobile sector continues to grow, there is a need to bring in high quality training institutes, which help institutionalise high 'quality training' on road safety." India looses approximately Rs 100,000 Crore in Accidents every year.
MSIL aims to reduce the number of deaths in car accidents and subsequently reduce the money lost.
