Update on SW Monsoon Progress
As per the latest data of Indian Meteorological Department (IMD), the cumulative monsoon rainfall deficit which earlier was -32% country as a whole is now at par with the normal i.e. – 0% (as of June 22nd, 2022) and the condition for further advance of monsoon is said to be favorable.
Meanwhile, despite of early onset and good pace of progress currently, the distribution of the monsoon rains is a cause of concern (which can be seen from the chart below) as most of the districts of key agriculture states like Maharashtra, MP, UP, Rajasthan, Gujarat, Odisha and Chhattisgarh etc. are still.
