India's current gross national income means the World Bank classifies it as a lower middle-income country (MIC)---however; it might take 25 years of sustained growth before it becomes an upper MIC such as China .


This article by Ram Shivakumar, writing for The Print, makes the following points:
  • At the end of 2021, the World Bank estimated India's per-capita gross national income (GNI) to be $2,277.
  • India will not have a per-capita GNI comparable to upper MICs for at least 25 years.
  • For India to become an upper MIC will depend on India developing and following sound growth-focused policy.
  • Indian economic growth will also depend on world economic growth.
