The Bangladesh-China-India-Myanmar Economic Corridor (BCIM) is a regional economic development and cooperation initiative of “the Belt and Road initiative” for South Asia and Southeast Asia. As one of the major countries crossing this economic corridor, India’s attitude towards this initiative has been passive for a long time, showing the phenomenon of “positive-negative-positive again”. This phenomenon has caused some uncertain factors for China to promote the construction of this economic corridor. Based on the analysis framework of “cognitive agreement”, “induced formula” and “historical analogy”, this paper makes a visual comparative analysis of the cognitive agreement of inter-country cooperation, so as to deeply grasp the evolution process and future prospect of India’s cognition, position and decision-making on this economic corridor.
