Will India become a superpower in 2020
Harsh Bhate, M.S. Electrical and Computer Engineering, Georgia Institute of Technology (2019)
Not at all.
India's GDP per capita is paltry compared to US, military weaker compared to let alone US. All the other indicator say the same too. There's a greater chance of man going to Mars by 2020 than India being a superpower by 2020

Firstly one needs to understand what is the defination of 'Super Power' as a country .
Is there a standard or a scale on which super powers are measured?
Answer is 'No', there is no defination of the term 'Super Power'.
No country is perfect in every aspect hence there are no standards on which super powers can be defined. That means there is no country that can be termed as Super Power.
Now here comes the question that, from where did the term came from?
The term 'Super Power' was first applied to the British Empire, the United States and the Soviet Union because of their overall influence on the world by means of military strength, technological advancement, cultural heritage and diversity, economic strength and diplomacy. But after the World War II and Cold War respectively it was difficult to call U.K. and Soviet Union as Super Powers.
If we go by the above defination, India will surely be a 'Super Power' but not by 2020, it may take another decade or more to achieve the medal of super power.

currently its the US which is having a tag as a superpower.The US also tops the list in GDP followed by . may soon overtake the US in a couple of years in GDP and maybe the next superpower.
India can be a superpower provided in next 40–50 years it focuses on its economy

Mainly because less than 4 years left.
A superpower country is a combination of strong military might, economic dominance, po itical influence ans mostly a cultural hegemony.
(human development , education and internal peace is not directly associated with term superpower.)
Just google and it is easy to find various data, reports and graphs to compare the above parameters among different major countries. Also, esting value, growth rate and future expectations can be shown by various charts, graphs and facts.
In military might, US is only country which has commands distributed into globe zones and not in national zones. It reflects the meaning that US has direct planning and preparedness to fight all kinds of war at virtually any place in the world. The technical advancement and innovation of US is known to world. US military expenditure is more than the same of next 12 countries combined together!!!
India is not like Russia (better say USSR, before 1991) which had highly centralized command and a will to invest highly in military strength.
India is not like which has capacity to invest heavy money for defense import and developments.
Not 2020. Atleast not a military superpower.
Economic superpower is possible, but I do not guarantee it. I can only predict, simply because out of the several develo countries on Earth, India is the fastest.
So maybe economic superpower by 2020. Military will take more time.
We need to upgrade our Army equipment. We need around 200–250 more fighter aircraft in our Air Force. Our Navy needs two to three more aircraft carriers. And our “supercarrier” programme, along with FGFA programme needs to be successful.
Then we can become a military superpower.

It is extremely unlikely.
India was and continues to be an important country in South-Asia, but it has a long way to go in terms of technological innovation, poverty alleviation, basic civic structure, basic infrastructure, financial and go nment regulations, social attitudes, volume of trade, among hundreds of other factors that contribute towards making a country a "super-power".
Military strength aside, we should be (and are) focusing on getting these things to every Indian. In descending order of importance for 2020:
Food, Water, Clothing, Shelter, Education, Healthcare, Electricity and Internet.

Becoming top is not important, remaining at top is what matters. India don't believe in that, India believe in development and growth.
India is a develo country and I believe develo is a continuous process and better than Stopped.
we may not be top in 2020 but we may have developed or on rise in different fields and in technology.
Ne: India don't care much about the top positions, it like "okay we at on top, now move to next" we don't compete or feel like we are in competition.
may be next 100 years , but then all countries like us would be super powers, we need to urgently put brakes on huge population growth, co ption, reservation, do massive investments on education, infra, science, technology, research, health, insurance, sanitation, jobs, local domestic manufacturing, agriculture etc.
presently we are going on a snail’s pace with no major initiatives by gt.
gt. focus is only to win ions and not on real time devlopment.

No. India is not a World Superpower. India is a Soft power, with limitations.
India is on the track, since, it was able to abrogate the age old Article 370 and attack Pakistan twice, without any major nation questioning. So it might be on the track.
India needs Bold Leader.

India would never become a superpower unless
Reservations are stopped and merit rewarded
Quality of teachers improves, which requires them to be paid the highest sries.
Indians understand that re gion and caste are personal and stop ing candidates based on such criteria
Get the judiciary to reform so that justice is immediate and the law is equal for all
Invest in modern technology and research rather than building bigger and grander temples, mo es, churches and such buildings deved to re gion
Follow these and in two generations India would be a superpower
Manjunatha Shastry Jayaram, Vice Presi nt (1991-present)
It is not so easy to become world superpower. To become superpower of the world by any country needs to be ruled by a non-de ratic . In a de ratic sy em to pass any policy there will be pro-ag inst by citizens. Hence it is not possible to become India a world superpower.

India already is one of the most powerful countries.
Only thing left in its arsenal is induction of ICBMs (Intercontinental Ballistic Missiles) with range in excess of 10,000 Km.
Agni VI currently in development with range of around 12,000 Km is slated to be under trial by 2018.
Other than that, India achieved Nuclear Triad capability, Aircraft Carriers, Nuclear Submarines, Own GPS satellite networks, etc which does make it a Super-power. Along with it, some form of coalition with US, Japan, Australia and other South-East Asian countries will provide a final push to the level of a Super power.

INDIA is slowly inching towards SUPER POWER STATUS, gradually & by 2025/30, possibilities are a near dream come true, to achieve the SUPER POWER STATUS
No ,India needs atleast two decades impressive growth to become middle income country. So i think it will be possible around 2035
