Monsoon to revive over East and North India in next 2-3 days: IMD Noor Arora
The southwest monsoon is expected to make a strong comeback in the next 2-3 days over North and East India, along with Gujarat, which might bring down the cumulative seasonal deficit to 2-3 per cent from the current 8 per cent, met department officials said. The western and central parts of the country have seen strong rainfall but the north India plains, including in big agrarian states of Uttar Pradesh, Bihar, Jharkhand, Odisha and Gujarat, have been left out, despite a strong start to the monsoon in June. â€œThe monsoon is expected to make a strong recovery over North and East India in the next 2-3 days, which will bring down the overall cumulative shortfall to about 2-3 per cent from the existing 8 per cent. In Gujarat too the monsoon has revived,â€? Charan Singh, senior IMD official said.
