China is a game changer for every one. India might end up doing the same. It would be nice if cities in vastly smaller nations could manage to stay in the game. It's going to be tough sledding for the Singapores and Torontos of this world, but I wouldn't count either of them out.

India will surely build more vertically as the country becomes more richer. Currently there are about 60 cities with a population of 1 million or more. By 2040, there will be more than 150 cities. Of those, some 15-20 cities will have population of 10 million or more. They can't keep on expanding horizontally forever like they are doing currently. They will be forced to go vertically at some point.

We might see China and India account for 40 of the top 50 skylines a generation from now. These are truly massive countries and it's quite possible that we'll see metros in both that exceed the populations of France, Italy, the UK, etc.

The scale of cities emerging in these countries will be like nothing we've ever seen before.

In terms of development, i think yes India is currently at where China was some 15-20 years ago.

Quite possible. Delhi's population currently is 25 million which is more than the total population of Australia and by 2030, it's population is expected to be around 36 million according to a report by U.N. Department of Economic and Social Affairs (UN DESA). (source for reference)

If we go by this report, then the population of Delhi might exceed 50 million by 2050.

If 50 million in 2050 came to pass Delhi wouldn't be all that far behind the population of Canada.

Maybe Dehli can even become the first and possibly only 100 million metro.
the larger national capital region has somewhere between 40-50 million people today,its not very densely populated though with around 1050inh/sq km today but considering its a cluster of the most important and largest cities in the indo gangetic plain,probably the most overpopulated and least urbanized part of the planet its bound to get a lot more populated.
even if Delhi grows extremely fast its satellite communities will grow even faster and a doubling from 50 million to 100 million by 2050 doesn´t seem very unlikely(pans out as a population growth of 2% year which is high but not unprobable,India would have the worlds largest population by far by 2050 ), and even 150 million might be achievable.
Unlike Mumbai,Delhi isnt blocked by water or mountains and could therefore grow almost without constraints .

Actually the NCR is a highly urbanized area. It comprises of several cities including the two booming cash cows, Noida and Gurgaon.

I meant that the indo gangetic plains are relatively rural with few large cities outside the NCR,100 of millions of poor farmers in Uttar Pradesh, Bihar and Rajahstan will migrate to cities in the next few decades looking for opportunities and they will probably rush to the largest urban centres of the plain,most major cities in the plain are located within or in close proximity to the NCR.
