The Road Transport Authority (RTA) is contemplating privatisation of the driving test tracks in the state to bring out quality and skilled drivers.
Due to the lack of sophisticated and advanced technology at the driving test centres, quality drivers are not being produced as a result the percentage of accidents has been increasing every year. According to the official data, as many as 15,000 people are dying in road accidents in the state every year.
The RTA officials found that most of the drivers of transport vehicles do not have driving skill and technical knowledge as to how to control their vehicles if a person suddenly come across it and how to manage if a major accident occurs.
It was noticed that the driving test tracks in New Delhi and Haryana have been privatised and are yielding good results.
According to the sources, the proposal for privatisation of around 39 driving test tracks is ready and will be sent to the government.
The sources said as per the condition of private companies the government would provide land to them and the companies would set up infrastructure and RTA officials will monitor driving tests. The officials collect Rs 200 as fee for each testing,
