there are 14 available jobs, companies are having difficulty finding the talent.

fields like Blockchain, Machine Learning.
How is automation of jobs affecting India?
IT sector has been India’s largest employer, employing 40 Lakh people directly, Digitisation and
automation of labor have brought disruption in the IT sector. Companies are facing their worst
period in a decade, there have been reports of layoffs across companies like Wipro, Accenture,
Cognizant and Tech Mahindra.
There is a major transition happening in software right now.
How can Engineers and Companies in India react to this transition?
The good news is there is a window of opportunity, India should educate and train the workforce
