London: India has probably surpassed Japan to become the world's third largest economy after the U.S. and China, Paris-based think-tank OECD said even as it lowered the country's economic growth projection for 2013 to 5.3 per cent.



"China will likely pass the United States as the world's largest economy in the next few years and India has probably recently surpassed Japan to be third largest," said the OECD Economic Outlook report.



Until around 2020, China is set to have to highest growth rate among major countries, but could be then surpassed by India, it further said.



OECD also said that by early 2030s, the BRIICS' (Brazil, Russia, India, Indonesia, China and South Africa) combined GDP should roughly equal that of the OECD (based on current membership), compared with just over half that of OECD now.



"Between now and 2060, GDP per capita is seen to increase more than 8-fold in India and 6-fold in Indonesia and China," it added.



The Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD), which in November had projected India to grow at 5.9 percent in 2013, cautioned that structural bottlenecks in the country could further constrain investment and growth potential.
