India - 3rd most powerful country in the world

India has been named as the third most powerful country in the world. With 8% of global power in its hands, India stands 3rd after United States (22% of power) and China (12% of power). If the European Union is included as a block, then it would account for 16% of global power, making India the fourth most powerful nation in the world. The model used by the agency took into account GDP, defense spending, population and technology for each country to come up with its rankings.
