The southwest monsoon season ended on Friday with the country receiving seven percent excess showers, news agency PTI reported earlier.
The report stated that the rice-growing states of Uttar Pradesh, Bihar, and Jharkhand reported deficient rains having a direct impact on the farm output.
Though the country as a whole received excess rainfall, the distribution has been uneven with Rajasthan reporting 36 percent more rains than normal and the northeast region, which witnesses copious showers, receiving deficit rainfall.
The southwest monsoon had entered the withdrawal phase on September 20 and on Thursday had retreated entirely from Punjab, Chandigarh, and Delhi, some parts of Jammu and Kashmir, Himachal Pradesh, Haryana, Rajasthan, and Gujarat, the weather office was quoted by the news agency as saying.
