New Delhi: India is likely to overtake Japan in 2028 to become the third largest economy in the world after China and United States, according to London-based economic consultancy Cebr. As per Cebr's World Economic League table report for 2013, India has lost a place in the league table in 2013 to Canada and is now the 11th largest economy in the world. "But demographics and economic growth will eventually drive the Indian economy up the table and the forecast for 2028 has India becoming the world's 3rd largest economy overtaking Japan," the report said.

The Cebr World Economic League Table (WELT) is an annual calculation by the consultancy. The base data for 2012 is taken from the IMF World Economic Outlook and the GDP forecast draws on Cebr's Global Prospects model to forecast growth, inflation and exchange rates.

The report gives an end of year report on GDP in the 30 largest economies in the world and forecasts countries that will be in the 'top thirty' after 5, 10 and 15 years.

In the 2013 league table, India is at the 11th place with a GDP of $1,758 (RPT 1,758) billion, and by 2018 the country is likely to be at the 9th place with a GDP of $2,481 billion, and by 2023 it would be at 4th place, with GDP size of $4,124 billion, and it will claim 3rd spot with GDP of $6,560 billion by 2028, it said.
