 Mangaluru, (The Hindu): Transport Minister H.M. Revanna on Saturday said the government is contemplating offering heavy vehicle driving training and driving licence for free to women.

Speaking after laying the foundation stone for a heavy vehicle driving training centre at Kamblapadavu near Mudipu here, Mr. Revanna said required allocation for the free training would be made in the forthcoming budget.

 


The Minister noted that the government has also undertaken another project of offering free tractor driving training and driving licence to farmers. While there are over five lakh tractors in the state, only about 3 lakh people have valid driving licence. Those without licence would be deprived of insurance and other facilities in cases of mishaps and hence the move, he said while handing over driving licence to a farmer symbolically.

Transport Commissioner B. Dayananda noted that an automated vehicle testing and certification centre as well as driving testing track would come up near the driving school on a 10-acre plot.
