After a month-long delay, monsoon has finally arrived in Gujarat with many parts of the state receiving moderate rainfall in the last 48 hours, the Indian Meteorological Department (IMD) said on Wednesday.
According to IMD officials, the system which brings in monsoon was not created properly this time. “No system was created this time which can bring the rains.. now the system has been formed and due to that monsoon has finally set in over Gujarat,” IMD regional additional director Manorama Mohanty said.
The monsoon usually sets over this part of India’s western state around June 15, but got delayed this year by about a month.
