The monsoon has finally arrived in India, and it is expected to bring much-needed relief to the parched land. The India Meteorological Department (IMD) has issued an alert for heavy rains in Uttar Pradesh, Bihar, Jharkhand, and Delhi-NCR.
The monsoon has already made its presence felt in some parts of the country. In Delhi, for example, it rained heavily on Sunday, bringing the city much-needed respite from the heat. The rains also caused waterlogging in some parts of the city, but there were no reports of any major damage.
The IMD has forecast that the monsoon will continue to progress further into the country in the coming days. Heavy rains are expected in Uttar Pradesh, Bihar, Jharkhand, and Delhi-NCR. The IMD has also warned of thunderstorms and lightning in some parts of the country.
The monsoon is a vital source of water for irrigation and drinking water in India. It is also a major source of hydroelectric power. The monsoon rains are expected to boost agricultural production and help to improve the water supply in the country.
