外文标题：Chinese daily scoffs at reports of India's GDP overtaking China
BEIJING: Peeved over IMF's forecast that India's growth rate would surpass that of China by 2016, a state-run daily here today said having overshadowed by the Communist giant for long, India is seeking evidence to show that "it is not inferior to China".
"It's different in India. Long overshadowed by China, it is keen to become the best in some aspects. It is in dire need of evidence to show that it is not inferior to China," state- run Global Times said in its editorial, a day after IMF forecast that Chinese economy would continue to slowdown even next year and would fall behind India's growth rate.
Besides posting its lowest growth of 7.4 per cent last year in two decades, during which China became the world's second largest economy, it also missed the official target of 7.5 per cent for the first time in recent years, fuelling concerns about a prolonged slowdown.
The IMF report said China's growth rate would further decline to 6.8 this year and 6.3 next year, falling behind India's projected 6.5 per cent growth rate for 2016.

The Chinese ran up the economic ladder when India was sleeping in Congress lap. It is virtually impossible to match the Chinese GDP let alone surpass it.

China's GDP is almost ten times. For that to over take 3 years is a too short period.
Mani (Mumbai) replies to Satya Prasad Munaganuri
Ha Ha! IMF is talking about growth rate not beating in GDP size
INDIA'S GDP WILL SURELY OVERTAKE CHINA'S GDP, IF INDIA GROWS FASTER AT 10 TO 12% FOR SOME YEARS AND THAN COOL OF AND SETTLE AT 8% WITH CONSISTENT GROWTH INDIA SURELY CAN OVERTAKE CHINESE GDP IN 12 TO 15 YRS WITH INNOVATIVE DEVELOPMENT AND KEEPING ABREAST IN TECHNOLOGY.
INDIA SHOULD NOT FOLLOW THE CHINESE BLINDLY AND COPY THE WESTERN MODE BUT RATHER TO THE NEEDS OF OUR DEVELOPMENT CHINA HAS GROWN COPY CAT CITIES OF THE WEST WHICH ARE NOW KNOWN AS GHOST CITIES THE REAL ESTATE IS BUBBLE WITH SHADOW BANKING ABOUT TO COLLAPSE ANY MOMENT.

You don't expect them to be happy about it. Of course they will grumble. Don't pay much attention to it. Also chinese when they grew at ten percent never thought the havoc it will bring to its skies and the environment and now they have woken up to realities Also The Chinese media's report just right! I haven't see such a factual and reasonanle report from Indian media!

Beautifully said. Modi needs to eat humble pie. Since China's GDP is 5 times that of India, a growth of 7% in China's GDP is equivalent to 5 times that i.e. 35% growth in India's GDP.

Chinese article is true. It is quite far from possibility that Indian GDP will cross that of China.
