Maruti Driving School - Why no auto shift gear cars are not part of learning vehicles?

                  Maruti has launched revolutionary automatic cars which gives mileage of manual cars. It is called as Auto Shift Gear cars.
                  I had been to Maruti driving school to enquire about driving classes and shockingly came to know that auto shift gear vehicles are not available as part of learning cars fleet.
                  I am wondering if anyone going for automatic car as a first vehicle has to forcefully learn manual car driving just for learning. If one is so much interested in driving manual car, why will he/she will opt for automatic car?
                  Personally speaking for some reason, I don't prefer the manual cars not due to gears, but due to clutch and accelerator co-ordination. Anyway I have learnt the manual car driving just for the license and has there was no option that long back in India.
                  Now that Maruti has launched auto shift gear cars in many of its models and it has its own driving school, then why auto shift gear cars are not part of its learning fleet? A person has to learn manual driving car if he/she wants to learn driving car. Then why will he/she opt for auto shift gear car by paying an extra premium to the price and instead will opt for manual car which is much lesser.

                  If Maruti wants to promote auto shift gear cars, then it has to include automatic cars in its learning fleet. This will make all other driving schools to include the automatic cars. Eventually automatic cars will get promotion and more people can opt for it.
