Automation v. Employment in Tech. Companies

Introduction: 

In the present Era, when technology is progressing, life has become far more comfortable than in primitive times. But these comforts are not without dangers. As we are progressing towards artificial intelligence and machine learning, automation of work is gaining momentum. But if we look at the negative sides of automation, the first major impact will be on employment. The tech industries that witness the highest automation are also witnessing a fall in the employment of individuals. In this article, we will look at the case study of automation vs. employment in tech. companies to understand how automation can impact employment in India. 

Revealings of the Report on employment in Tech companies

 employment in Tech companies

Recently a report was prepared about employment in tech companies like HCL, TCS, Wipro, Mahindra, Cognizant etc. The report revealed that there could be a loss of almost three million workforces by 2022 in these tech companies. These revelations are based on the increasing automation of work in these tech companies. If We look at the present data, The domestic tech industries employ more than 16 million workforces. But unfortunately, there can be a huge reduction in the workforce in these tech industries by 2022 due to ever-increasing automation. 

This reduction in workforce will help the company save almost 100 million US dollars that was earlier spent on the wages and salaries of these employees. Another positive impact on the companies will be that after successful implementation of automation and new softwares, they will get enhanced efficiency and accuracy. For instance, if these tech companies use robots for work, they can work 24 into seven without tiring and accuracy. 

Recent statistics about the distribution of workforce in tech industries

 Let’s look at the current stats published by Nasscom regarding the employment distribution in these tech companies to understand better. 

  • These tech companies presently employ almost 16 million people, out of which employees work in low skilled jobs, including BPO roles. 
  • According to the data, 3 million that is 30% of this 9 million workforce working in law skill tech job, can become unemployed by 2022 due to digitalisation and automation
  •  The worst impact of technological advancements in rpa will be witnessed in the USA, according to the report published by Bank of America.

What does the report say about RPA (Robot Process Automation

Robot Process Automation

Robot process automation refers to the process of using softwares rather than physical Roberts for doing specialised work. This will help the companies in the differentiation of work. There will be a huge reduction in time and costs. RPA can also help developed countries in gaining back the outsourced work. The beginning of software offshoring dates back to the 1970s and 1980s, when people started using personal computers. 

What are the expected outcomes of automation: 

According to the report, even after automation, developed countries can face a shortage of labour while some countries like the Philippines, Greece etc., will have surplus labour. Countries like India and China, with a huge labour surplus, can suffer a lot due to this automation. 

Rounding up

Automation and technological progress are helpful in creating a better society. But we must not ignore other crucial aspects under the veil of automation. The debate of automation Vs. employment in tech. companies is an ever-growing debate. Therefore the need of the hour is to balance between automation and employment. Concrete legislation for protecting workers’ rights in the age of digitalisation is the right step in this direction. It will remain interesting to see how the countries increase automation without creating more unemployment in the economy.

RSS first Super 10 Student batch is ready for JEE and NEET

Forget Anand Kumar’s “Super 30” show. An RSS-supported institution educated the inaugural class of 10 financially poor but deserving students in Lucknow. It will be able to take the JEE or NEET exams to gain admission to IITs and other institutions.

Mahamana Shikshan Sansthan

Mahamana Shikshan Sansthan - Super 10 Student batch is ready for JEE and NEET

The Mahamana Shikshan Sansthan is part of the Sangh’s Bhaurao Devras Seva Nyas. It was established in Arjunganj (Lucknow) in 2019. It is managed by BHU graduates and other top medical and technical schools in the country.

RSS sources indicate that children are chosen from all over the state after they have been physically screened and verified their financial status through house visits.

Plans are in place to induct children who have been orphaned by the Corona pandemic. This follows the Yogi Adityanath government’s offer of Rs 4000 financial assistance to children who have lost both their parents in the Uttar Pradesh floods. 

The campus of the three-story institute is 34,000 sq. feet in size and includes 20 rooms as well as a large hall on its main floor. Students who have attained at least 80% in class 10 are eligible for admission. Although the idea was originally created for students from all over India, it is primarily focused on poorer regions. Poorvanchal and Bundelkhand are two examples of socially poor areas in UP.

After more than ten year in private life, Tewari decided to leave the corporate world and join the coaching institute as a major faculty member. “We are hoping for strong results when the first batch of students takes the admission tests in the coming days,” he said.

Vidya Bharti School

Vidya Bharti School

The Vidya Bharti school in Sector Q, Aliganj will provide free education and boarding for selected children in classes 11 and 12. Like the RSS-supported Saraswati Shishu Mandal, the institution is affiliated with the CBSE board. The college was open to 21 students in its second year.

Applications are being accepted through July 30, and the admissions process has started for the 3rd year. The college hopes to host at least 25 students.

Conclusion

A Lucknow-based RSS backed institution has already enrolled the first batch of 10 meritorious students to be tutored by it. They are now ready for JEE and NEET.
