    Actually this speaks volumnes of illetracy, incapacity, incapability and scrap value of management in this country. They can buy a van worth 8 crore, but can’t train a driver worth 8000 rupees to drive that van. Afterall, it’s just another van right? So why train a driver for it. God knows who certified the driver to drive that van, or was it just another sheda talle standing in the lounge who was asked to get on top of the van and drive it to CDA chairman. Notice the whole fridget worth millions was being driven to CDA chairman, when the chairman himself should have come to inspect it. Let me tell you this, there are countries in the world where corporate CEO sell tickets on customer counters and lift labour loads with regular employees. The beneifts is two folds….employee motivation and the excercise gives them an insight to the problems in the process from a first hand experience.

    Also I am pretty sure they bought the van but never did the feasibility that the van was capable enough to handle our roads, and CDA building corridors.

    “never did the feasibility that the van was capable enough to handle our roads, and CDA building corridors”

    No justification for “tuker” still. The driver could have just stopped. :P

    @Self: That’s what happens when you put an 80 million machine in the hands of an untrained driver. He doesn’t know when to stop the thing or perhaps “how to”

    @1967: You are spot on.

    There does not seem to be any concern for taxpayers’ money among our sahib-bahadurs. No professionalism or long-term objective thinking at all in these bureaucrats. Training is required both for the driver and the managers who make these decisions.

    as an addition to 1967 here, for the computerized system – the driver should be properly trained as well.

    Can someone call CDA and tell the idiots to open the glove box of the truck, take out the user manual and read it.
