Upgradation is one of those redundant words that probably grew in the fertile fields of corporate self-importance. After all, the existing nouns "upgrade" and "upgrading" seem downright wimpy compared to the muscular "upgradation" with its four syllables and "-ation" suffix.
First referenced in a BBC report in 1979 "The protocol also envisages the possibility of continuous technological upgradation in the existing fields of manufacture." —"USSR - Machine Building," BBC Summary of World Broadcasts, November 28, 1979
