Give the characteristics and effects of the monsoon rainfall in India.
Answer: Monsoon tends to have ‘breaks’ in rainfall; which means that there are wet and dry spells in between.
The monsoon is famous for its uncertainties. It may cause heavy floods in one part of the country, and may be responsible for droughts in other part.
Because of its uncertain behaviour, it sometimes disturbs the farming schedule in India. This affects millions of farmers all over the country.
