Ashok Leyland launched a unique placement scheme for trained commercial vehicle drivers in the country at a function held at their Driver Training Institute in Namakkal. The new scheme instituted and facilitated by Ashok Leyland offers a sound value proposition to both the drivers and fleet owners: while, on one hand, it promises affordable high quality training and assured employment to the drivers, on the other, fleet owners get access to better trained and skilled drivers to manage their fleet.
“This placement scheme is an important step towards not only improving quality of life and professional standards of drivers but also enhancing the possibilities of attracting the youth into this profession.,” said, Mr. B. Venkat Subramaniam, Executive Director, Strategic Allied Business Initiatives, Ashok Leyland, at the launch of the scheme.
Ashok Leyland, at present, has two Driver Training Institutes (DTI) at Namakkal (Tamil Nadu) and Burari, near Delhi that are amongst the most comprehensive in India’s private sector. These DTIs are built with all conceivable road and terrain configurations, equipped with modern facilities and follow a structured curriculum whereby divers are trained for life both on and off the road. Thus far, more than 5 lakh drivers have been trained at these two institutes. More driving training institutes are planned at Khaital (Haryana), Chindwara (MP), Rajasmand (Rajasthan) and Bhubaneswar (Odisha).
As part of Ashok Leyland’s comprehensive driver care programme is ‘Arogya’, a health initiative, with a medical center set up at Hosur where drivers can avail of free medical check-ups and consultations. Another of the Company’s initiatives is the ‘All the Best’ scheme, a scholarship programme for top-performing children of drivers.
