Nomura raises BSE Sensex target to 30,310 by end of August 2015.

Highlights Axis Bank , ICICI Bank , State Bank of India , GAIL India , Coal India , Tata Motors among top picks.

Separately, UBS maintains its 12-month target of 8,000 on the NSE index <.NSEI> saying concerns about government inaction are misplaced.
