A Centre of excellence in Automotive Engineering and Road Transport Management

  • Welcome to Central Institute of Road Transport

    The Central Institute of Road Transport (CIRT) was established in 1967 on the joint initiative of the Ministry of Shipping & Transport & the Association of State Road Transport Undertakings. CIRT is committed to improving the efficiency & productivity of the transport sector, with particular emphasis on the STU. CIRT has been offering technical training, consultancy and automobile component testing services to the STU fraternity for the last 45 years. CIRT offers management development programmes covering general management, transport operations and maintenance engineering. The programmes are meant for practising managers in STUs, other organisations operating transport services besides road transport officials. All programmes are residential and their duration ranges from one week to four weeks. In addition, the Institute undertakes consultancy and research assignments on transport policy, transportation planning, traffic management, maintenance management, materials management, human resource management and management information systems.


    With the assistance of international agencies such as UNDP and the British Council, CIRT has strengthened its core competence and is now regarded as a major management development centre in the country. CIRT has a sophisticated automobile component testing laboratory, recognised by the Bureau of Indian Standards for testing a wide range of automobile components. ASRTU relies on the test reports of CIRT while awarding rate contracts to automobile component manufacturers. The joint endeavour of ASRTU and CIRT for monitoring the quality of auto parts has stood the test of time and has become an indispensable input for upgrading quality and ensuring cost-effectiveness.
