Amid wettest monsoon in 25 years, 1 in 5 districts had deficit rains

IndiaTimes Wednesday, 2 October 2019
These dry districts account for nearly 23% of the 678 districts for which India Meteorological Department’s rainfall data is available. All but 12 of these districts are in north, east and northeast India. IMD defines “deficient” rainfall in a district as rainfall that is 20% to 59% below normal. Deficiency of 60% or more falls in the “scanty” or “large deficient” category.
