India's current fund flow situation seems to be following the path of 2008-09 and 2012-13, said Santosh Kamath, CIO, Franklin Templeton.

“If you go back and compare this to what happened in 2008-09 or 2012-13, we are kind of following the same path," Kamath told CNBC-TV18.

However, he said in 2008-09, the panic was very high. "It was 10 times higher than what it is now. The panic was that entire countries are going to get wiped out. That particular year Indian currency depreciated by close to 35 percent — from 38 it went to 52 — and it took one more year after that for things to normalise," Kamath said.

“Even 2012-13 was much worse than what it is now. Again, the currency depreciated from 48 to 66,” he added.

Along with Kamath, from the sidelines of the Motilal Oswal's 15th Investor Conference, CNBC-TV18’s Latha Venkatesh caught up with debt market experts Nimesh Shah, MD & CEO, ICICI Prudential AMC and Navneet Munot, CIO, SBI Funds Management.
