Maharashtra has most robotics jobs in India

There’s been a 186% spurt in Indians looking for employment in robotics, with Maharashtra offering most of the jobs in the sector, according to a new study by the job site, Indeed.
Maharashtra is followed by Karnataka and Telangana.
The reason: While Maharashtra is home to large technology centres such as Pune and Mumbai, Karnataka has India’s own Silicon Valley, Bengaluru, and Telangana will soon have a technology hub in Hyderabad.
The number of people looking for jobs in robotics soared 186% between May 2015 and May 2018, said the study released on 5 July.
However, following an initial spurt in growth in 2015, driven by the government’s $13 billion investment in robotics under its Make in India initiative, hiring for robotics slowed considerably as the drive lost its momentum, says the study.
