About Anuradha (Sonu) Jairaj Jatar (nee Anuradha Purushottam Moghe)
The Vimalabai Jatar Charitable Trust has been funding the training of drivers and conductors for the past many years. The training happened this year too. The training takes place in several batches, of 24 drivers and 24 conductors in each batch (total 48) at IDTR, Pune (Institute of Driver Training and Research).
When the drivers and conductors work in pairs it improves communication. The training takes place over a period of two days.
Medha Jere conducted the role-play sessions. The drivers and conductors are put into difficult situations that they commonly face during their journey. For example, if a person with heavy luggage enters the bus and blocks the passage of other passengers. Or when there is a conflict between passengers about seat-sharing. Or how to behave if a passenger complains of a missing wallet. Continue reading “PMPL Driver Conductor Training by the Jatar Trust”→
The Vimalabai Jatar Charitable Trust was formed from the proceeds of the estate of Air Vice Marshal JN Jatar (popularly known as Bhaiyya) who expired in November 1992 in New Delhi. It was Bhaiyya’s wish that a Trust in the name of his mother (Lady Vimalabai Jatar) was established for the purpose of education. It is registered under the Bombay Public Trusts Act, 1950.
There have been contributions from the heirs of the other brothers of AVM Jatar as also Maj Gen SCN Jatar.
The primary objective is Education & Training.
Maj Gen SCN Jatar (Sudhir) has been running this trust since its inception and recently several new trustees have been inducted.
This trust has given scholarships to meritorious students in the past but now is mainly concentrating on funding deserving organisations like BORI (The Bhandarkar Oriental Research Institute), Tathapi, KKPKP (Kagad Kach Patra Kashtakari Panchayat) and the Gurnam Boys Academy of the Bombay Sappers. It has also funded the training of PMPML drivers and conductors which usually happens at ITDR (Institute of Driver Training and Research) in Pune.
