The country’s official weather forecaster, India Meteorological Department (IMD), issues monsoon forecast every year. The first forecast is issued by mid-April while the second is issued by the first week of June.

The forecast gives a fair idea of the four-month rainfall season from June to September, which is very crucial for the agriculture sector.
