The vigorous monsoon over northern and eastern regions in the last few days has narrowed the deficiency in the quantum of rainfall since June 1 to a negligible level, boosting kharif-sowing activities.

According to the IMD, the average monsoon rainfall across the country during June 1-July11 has been 257.6 millimetres (mm), which is below normal by just 1%, with the benchmark being 261.3 mm, arrived on the basis of a 50-year average shower.

The north-west region has received a huge 18% excess rainfall than the normal benchmark while central India has received 4% less rainfall than normal. While the southern peninsula has received 9% more rainfall than normal so far, both eastern and north-eastern regions have rainfall deficits of 5% than normal.
