India has lowered its forecast for June-September monsoon rainfall to 87 percent of long-period average from 93 percent earlier due to a slow start to the season, the earth sciences minister said on Tuesday.
Jitendra Singh said there was no scientific evidence of a drought this year and that the August-September monsoon rains were seen at 95 percent of the long-period average.
An average monsoon for the August-September period is when India receives downpours of between 96 percent and 104 percent of a 50-year average of 43.5 centimetres, the weather office classification shows.
