Patna: Holding out relief to the people, particularly farmers, of drought-prone Bihar, the weather office said Wednesday that the much-awaited monsoon is likely to hit the state between June 11 and 15.
Meteorological department officials here said monsoon clouds would hit the state after June 10.
"Monsoon is set to enter the state before the end of second week of June," an official said.
Patna meteorological department director Animesh Chandra told over telephone that unlike last year, monsoon will not be delayed in the state.
"The monsoon will be normal this year," he added.
Last year, the monsoon failed in the state, forcing the government to declare 26 of 38 districts drought hit.
