Monsoon shows signs of revival
Pune: After a lull, the monsoon has shown signs of revival following a deep depression in Bay of Bengal leading to a continuing wet spell in the eastern states of India, according to MET officials.
The advance of the monsoon in the North-Westerly direction was benefiting Jharkhand and adjoining areas.
The rains had been good all over the West coast and the wet spell could continue for another 2/3 days, Medha Khole, Director, Central Weather Observatory here said today.
Upto September 2, the overall rain deficit in the country was 23 percent and the revival of the monsoon could make up for it to some extent, she said, adding that prospects
of rainfall in the Northern states depended on what direction the monsoon would take in current month.
Meanwhile, Dr Narendra Jadhav, member of Planning Commission and former Vice chancellor of Pune University said here that the September rainfall would be important for stabilising the country`s economic growth rate at 6.3 during financial year 2009-10.
