In a bid to improve its revenues and wipe out the huge losses, the AP State Road Transport Corporation has initiated a training programme, Mundadugu, for its employees in personality development.

Famous psychologist and magician BV Pattabhiram was appointed  consultant for the programme by the corporation. Pattabhiram has  trained over 100 division-level officers of the RTC at the Marri Chenna Reddy Human Resource Development Institute a few days ago.

The trained officers are, in turn, imparting training to all the drivers, conductors, garage workers and administrative staff at 211 depots across the state.

According to RTC officials, the Mundadugu programme is yielding good results: revenue is going up and losses are coming down.

The corporation, with accumulated losses touching Rs 4,200 crore, is finding it difficult to pay even salaries. Executive director M Ravinder said that thanks to the unique programme, the corporation is able to bring down the losses from Rs 420 crore last year to Rs 170 crore this year. The bus occupancy ratio has increased to 71 from 69 a few days ago. The main objective of Mundadugu is to train drivers and conductors in tackling the pressures of personal life and improving their efficiency in work for the development of the organisation, he said.

The training classes, covering 1.28 lakh employees, will continue till March 31.
