Automation is the creation of technology and its application in order to control and monitor the production and delivery of various goods and services. It performs tasks that were previously performed by humans. Automation is being used in a number of areas such as manufacturing, transport, utilities, defense, facilities, operations and lately, information technology.

Is it a bane or boon in Developing countries?

Its both ways. In some fields its boon while in some its bane.

There is a problem with "the production and delivery of various goods and services". To whom will those robots deliver them? To other robots? Humans, not having jobs, won't have money to pay for goods and services. This looks like the end of the market economy. Because most people won't have anything to sell and therefore won't be able to buy.
