As a man of the transport since 4 decades, I feel proud of this building of AAUI, which has also the latest and sophisticated driving training system by computerized simulator, which is the first of its kind in our country. It was only possible  for its   President, Mr. T K Malhotra, who has acted like a magician and devoted all his time, energy, wisdom, skill and above all the foresight which he possesses.  The AAUI which was not up to the expectations, is now much meaningful organization with the name and fame.    I suggest a status of Mr. T K Malhotra be placed here in a suitable place so that his beneficial act for the motorist and the motoring world can never be forgotten. I wish all success to AAUI.

Joint Commissioner of Police, Traffic Delhi

Today, I visited to participate in “Face to Face interaction  with Women drivers", a unique programme organized by Shri Malhotra.
