The widening current account gap is one of the major concerns which is putting pressure on the rupee, which has depreciated 13 percent against dollar this year.
Brent breached the $80 per barrel mark Monday and analysts at the American brokerage said they expect it to go up further to $95 by June 2019, which will put pressure on the current account.
The country's CAD widened to $15.8 billion or 2.4 percent of the GDP for the first quarter.
