Patna: Bihar will get its first Institute of Driving and Traffic Research (IDTR) in Aurangabad.
Spread over 15 acres, it’s going to start its courses from May 3. It would be easy to get licences for heavy-motor vehicles after undertaking courses that would cost something between Rs 400 and Rs 8,000 at the institute.
“It is a proud moment for Bihar. It’s ready and would be inaugurated on May 3. The purpose behind opening the institute is to impart good training to drivers. If drivers are trained properly, incidents of road accidents will go down,” transport secretary Sanjay Kumar Agarwal said on Monday.
The Bihar government has completed the institute spending Rs 25 crore, however, it will be run by Maruti Suzuki India. The company is working in the collaboration with the Bihar government. “Maruti will train the drivers and will maintain it too,” Agarwal said.
