Nitin Gadkari launches Castrol CRB TURBOMAX Pragati Ki  Paathshaala to upskill Indian truckers

Castrol India Limited has launched the Castrol CRB TURBOMAX Pragati Ki Paathshaala’ initiative, in order to spur professional competencies of truck drivers across India, with an on-ground planned reach of over 100,000 truckers.

Nitin Gadkari, Minister of Road Transport and Highways of India, launched the campaign by unveiling the logo, along with Sandeep Sangwan, Managing Director, Castrol India. 

In its first phase, ‘Castrol CRB TURBOMAX Pragati Ki Paathshaala’ comprises a two-and-a- half-month journey with two specially designed trucks taking different routes covering all regions across India. The  journey will engage truck drivers in interactive, on-ground Paathshaalas across planned Transport Nagars on their way.

The knowledge sessions have been curated to upskill truckers around four key aspects—Driving Safety, Truck Ownership, New Technology and Business Profitability. 

Nitin Gadkari, Union Minister of Road Transport and Highways said, "The road ministry of India is committed to ensuring the safety, well-being and progress of truck drivers by undertaking multiple initiatives. The Government has built state-of-
the-art expressways and enacted laws to curb road accidents, but lack of fear and discipline among drivers is a huge challenge. I congratulate Castrol India for launching ‘Pragati Ki Paathshaala’ which is a step towards building awareness and encouraging truckers to #BadhteRahoAagey." 

Sandeep Sangwan, Managing Director of Castrol India, states, "The trucking community has always been an integral part of Castrol India, and we have been continuously striving to ensure their safety and livelihood through various transformative initiatives. More than 50% of India's truckers operate in unorganised fleets or as individual owners. The programme aims to boost their, entrepreneurial mindset and directs them towards the path of a progress.
