More than 75 per cent of Indias land area has received normal or excess rainfall this monsoon season, but in the absence of such a temperature difference no depression has formed over the bay since the start of the 2010 season.Depressions deliver intense rainfall as they move north-westward across the Gangetic plains. With no depression this year, parts of eastern India Bihar, Jharkhand, eastern Uttar Pradesh and Bengal have received rainfall significantly below normal.

It has crossed 85% and the estimate of the IMD is that this year's annual rainfall will be 107% of the average annual rain fall and further that the monsoon season will be longer by almost two weeks.

Not likely.........even if it reaches 85% mark we don't have enough infrastructure( dams,barricades etc) and the result will be flash floods. in certain aspects a few imp northern rivers will meet the demand by good rain in the himalayan shadow region..any other case has alwas resulted in crop damage and floods(as per locals when i once visited them with a survey group) and you can see the incapacity of the rain-fed rivers in the south which are already on the verge of flooding....its good to have the rainfall between optimum and good levels(70-83%) in order to bring down food inflation.....in brief this matter is like a two edged sword..less or more will harm in many ways..hope this time its upto desired levels only
