The brokerage adds it is late in downgrading India, but if the rupee continues to slide it would continue to underperform.

Citi also lowered its target for India's benchmark index to 18,900 from 20,800, citing increasing uncertainty after the rupee's slide despite Reserve Bank of India's measures
since mid-July.
