I had mentioned this in the Renault AMT thread as well.
Yes, a person who has been driving regular automatics will definitely not be satisfied with the quality of shifts that an AMT provides.
However, for a person coming from a manual car, wouldn't the shifts be comparable, especially if we continue with the practice of taking our foot off the accelerator pedal and changing gears ourselves in the manual mode.
In that case wouldn't the shift quality be comparable and hence AMTs might be the perfect replacement for manuals as the fuel efficiency doesn't take a hit and we don't have to suffer from prolonged clutch use either.

The demand for automatics ( read mostly AMT) rises in India.

The demand for automatic cars in the country have soared, new models flood the markets and 1 in every 10 cars sold in India is automatic.
A recent Frost & Sullivan report stated that during the period January to March 2016, automatic car sales in India commanded a market share of 10%.

More cars with AMT are in the pipeline as estimates state that by 2020-22, 25-30% of the auto market is expected to see a shift towards AMT variants.
