New Delhi: In­dia is likely to wit­ness a nor­mal mon­soon this year, the IMD said on Mon­day. The mon­soon will be 97 per cent of long pe­riod av­er­age, which is nor­mal for the sea­son, IMD di­rec­tor­gen­eral K. G. Ramesh said. He said that there was “very less prob­a­bil­ity” of a de­fi­cient mon­soon. The date of on­set of mon­soon will be an­nounced in the mid­dle of May. The four­month mon­soon sea­son pro­vides about 70 per cent of the an­nual rain­fall.
