Monsoon 1 pc deficient
Tribune News Service

New Delhi, October 1
The performance of the monsoon this year has not been so dismal after all.
As the met department gets ready to pat its back (it predicted a near-normal monsoon at the beginning of the season), a sneak preview of its end-of-the-season monsoon report card shows that overall the country has experienced just 1 per cent rainfall deficiency.

This should bring a sigh of relief to the otherwise harried met officials, who have been on the receiving end of lot of criticism with some of its critical monsoon predictions having gone haywire in the past couple of years.

The end-of-the-season report will be issued two days after the monsoon officially bids adieu tomorrow. And there is not expected to be much change in rainfall figures.

Till Thursday, the country recorded 872.8 mm rainfall as against the normal of 884.4 mm, in all a total deficiency of just 1 per cent.

The north-west received 550 mm rainfall as against the normal of 608.7 mm and managed to recover quite well from the dismal state of 22 per cent deficiency it was in just 20 days back to 10 per cent as on the date.

In fact, at present Haryana is 2 per cent surplus with 475 mm rains against 467.7 mm it should normally have received. But Punjab has not been so lucky and has a rainfall deficiency of 7 per cent as it managed to get 465.9 mm against its normal of 499.2 mm. Himachal Pradesh is -8 per cent deficient with 711 mm rainfall against the normal of 770.4 mm. Some parts in western Utter Pradesh and Rajasthan have not done so well in the northwest.

In all, of the four homogeneous regions, Central India with 1092.2 mm rainfall against the normal of 985.6 mm is 11 per cent in the surplus and southern peninsula with 798.5 mm rainfall against the normal of 711.2 mm is also 12 per cent in the positive.
