The Bank of America-Merrill Lynch says expects the Sensex to drift to its 15,000 target given economic growth and current account concerns. It adds business confidence is below the Lehman crisis levels.

"While valuations are below long term averages, the market has been de-rated as India's growth momentum is at 10-year low and the twin deficits too are the worst in over a decade," BoA-ML analysts say.

The bank adds "a meaningful recovery" is unlikely until the government undertakes reforms.

But BoA-Merrill adds oil prices could provide near-term relief, saying a USD 10 per barrel decline in oil reduces India's current account deficit by 0.4% of GDP and the fiscal deficit by 0.2% of GDP.
