India need a lifetime to surpass china in term of various economical strength. i know most of the recent intellectual will not believe and i may attract some criticism here but what is true is true. I will try to make it short and crisp.
Lets compare some very basic individual basic factor which actually matter such as land, people.
India land area: 3.287 million km²
China land are: 9.597 million km²
Notice the area china have is more than 3 times, which India can never have until we invade some country and with present condition we cant.
China: 2,335,000 (here also china is twice the size, hiring this much force is beyong india immagination)
notice in 1960 China was only 2 times the total Indian GDP but in 2015 China surpass 6 times the total GDP.
And the last is GNI (Atlas method).
(The Atlas method is a method used by the World Bank to estimate the size of economies in terms of gross national income (GNI) in U.S. dollars. ... The resulting GNI in U.S. dollars is divided by the country's midyear population to obtain the GNI per capita)
Source: GNI, Atlas method (current US$)
I hope this will correct a lot of peoples misconception about India and China.
And it is not bad and bot good also. India is India and China is China and we both are growing for our-self not for competition. And if someone want to see where USA is in all this please refer to below GDP graph.

Do a simple math.
The GDP of China — $11,218,281 million
The GDP of India — $2,256,397 million
Say India grows by 8% per year, China grows by 5%, with anything else remaining the same:
It takes 57 years in this case.
Say India grows by 8% per year, China doesn’t grow, with anything else remaining the same:
It takes 20 years if China stops growing from now.
But the economy is much more complicated and these results don’t really mean anything.
