India's economic growth would be higher than China.
But China's GDP(nominal) would be bigger than India.

My view is that China is facing major problems in the coming decades and that it will have a hard time dealing with them all. These include:
2) Flight of capital
3) Demographic problems as a result of the one-child rule (mainly, there will be a large number of people who are not of working age being supported by a small number of people who are - with "small" being relative to China)
4) Ethnic problems
I don't know much about India but from the little I've read, India seems to have problems 1 and 4 as well.

Maybe China, because Chinese leaders do not deal with dirty politics, communal hatred, one party pulling the legs the other party etc. Chinese work for the progress of their nation. India surely can overtake Chine and become a winner in 2050, if Indian leaders feel sorry for having burnt & killed thousands of Sikhs, Muslims, Christians, Dalits and whatever bad has happened in the past and divert their attention towards nation building task.
