According to me, technology creates income disparity. Everything is a good side and a bad side. Through technology, people can work very easily and accurately and it requires less manpower. On the other hand those people they will take the training they cannot operate the machine and those are the illiterate person they will not get the job as well as one machine can work in comparison to at least 10 people so the employer does not need to recruit more people. He will appoint the person as per his choice so all the people will not get the chance as a result people will not get a job from where they will get money as a result income disparity in our society.

Good Morning Friends,

According to me, Obviously technology creates income disparities in our country. Because technology development is increased in everyday. This technology development creates new technology and updation. So technology impact many things in peoples and they are addict to new technologies. People interest in new technologies will be varied. So their income will be different in one to another. So definitely technology creates income disparities.

Thank You.

In my view, We should also not deny the fact that though the machine has reduced the manpower requirement, on the other hand, a large man-power is required to manufacture that machine. So, one can say that the employment is balanced, but unfortunately, India imports machines from other countries and therefore India is just focusing on the work to be done by machines and not the work to be done for machines.

Hi Guys!

In my view, it is obvious that technology has created income disparities in India. This is because the work which was earlier done manually taking hours of time is now possible to get done even in a few minutes with the use of technology. And 5 men's work is done by a single machine, so employment has been reduced. But those five men earn uniform less amount of income which is earned in summation by a single person operating the machine; just because he has the knowledge to operate it.

We should also not deny the fact that though the machine has reduced the manpower requirement, on the other hand, a large man-power is required to manufacture that machine. So one can say that the employment is balanced, but unfortunately, India imports machines from other countries and therefore India is just focusing on the work to be done by machines and not the work to be done for machines.

This is where India is lacking and hence I personally agree with the statement "Technology Created Income Disparities".

Hi Guys,

As we all know that 'time is money' use of technology saves our time in all the works and we are able to do more work with the help of saved time. Technology is a boon for the world at all the work places where all the people are able to do their working easy any how. Nowadays production level is increasing as per demand in the market as maximum productions houses are using modern technology and fairly treat all the products for getting positive feedback however get more & more profit in the business. We can realize that when we do proper working in this competitive world so facing Income Disparities are not a shock news.

When we would not use technology we would face many problems and we would try to troubleshoot the problems all the time and in result we would got time waste in front of us but with the help of technology we got different-2 innovations for making work easy all the time like mobile phone we can talk to anybody to anywhere, computers we are able to perform well compare to past time and there are many more innovations with us all the time for making our working easy so over all I can say that yes there are Income disparities because of technology.

Thanks.

I will not agree, that technology create income disparities because, for example all the people's will say that 100man power =1 machine it's true, but for introducing 1 machine how many people will struggle and how many people will work. Just think once.

So I will not agree that technology create income disparities.

I think technology has both advantages & disadvantages. In one hand, technology helps us to increase the development of our country. It makes many works easier. Now, all of us filled any form online. There is a very small amount of chance to mistake. It is very time- saving. We can complete any work very easily and fast through technology. We can stop corruption and crime by using the help of technology.

In other hand, some dishonest people use technology in a wrong way. They hacked any bank account and collect all rupees. Thus a poor people lost his all savings which he earned by heavy working.

In a side, technology increases the chance of getting a job and earning money. Otherside, we lost our savings by some men.

If all of us, use technology in a good way for a good job, then it is efficient to take a country to top level of the world.

Hello everyone, To my opinion technology creates disparities in income but it cannot be blamed single handed. Our education system is also responsible for that. Technology will not stop at any point. Science will keep upgrading technology but proper education should be there to train the manpower to be adapt to the new technologies and upgrade themselves. As technology develops there is less need for manpower. Computers and robots are replacing human man power but that doesn't mean there is fewer employment opportunities for humans. The way of employment has changed. It is less labour oriented and more skill oriented now. Take an instance. In banks, there is passbook printing machines and ATM's to dispose of cash but only a person can do the marketing oriented job there. For customer service, there needs an human employee only. So it is more skill based job. And where people are less skilled they lack behind unemployed. So it creates income disparity. The courses and syllabus of education should be changed in a way that develops creativity not create hard working labourers.

Technology, it's a part of science. Everyone gather knowledge in different areas to make his and others life happier and easier. Like that human created different technology for his own benefit. So from my point of view, it is developed for our good. So we have to take decision to use technology in a good way so that it could be used for the good of all. Lastly, I wanna say that it does not create any income disparities. We have to make it available for all so that everyone can use it for something good.

I think technology is like a mirror. It reflects you the way you have programmed it to do. If you operate the technology in a good and efficient manner then it is a boon or else it's going to cost you a lot and make one's life worse than a hell.
