Policy Watch: Robotics and Automation In India – Rajya Sabha TV

Robotics and automation can be India’s next big industry boom in a scale that can match the famous boom in information technology (IT) and business process outsourcing (BPO) services in 2000s, according to Raghunath Subramanian, president and chief executive officer of UiPath India.

Digital transformation is taking over our world, and RPA is the true operating system for our digital transformation. For it to function properly, a large, talented workforce is necessary. Such volumes of talented workforces can only come from India.

Subramanian’s belief comes from the observations of his firm, UiPath, which is one of the leading providers of robotic process automation (RPA) services across industries, globally. According to him, India enjoys the unique advantage in terms of the sheer size and variety of the talent pool present in its youth. This is further coupled with the presence of both Indian and international businesses across various sectors, all of which would likely adopt some form of RPA services in the near future, if not already.

With robotics holding key potential to take industries further in a weak Indian economy, stakeholders such as UiPath and AICRA will hope to see stronger support, as they bid to take robots beyond just a casual, engineering college hobby.
