The India Meteorological Department (IMD) has said that monsoon has started withdrawing from India on today, eight days after the normal date of September 17, as reported by PTI

In a statement by IMD, it said, "(The) southwest monsoon has withdrawn from parts of southwest Rajasthan today, September 25, 2023, against its normal date of withdrawal from southwest Rajasthan of September 17," it said in a statement. 

As per the weather department, this is the 13th consecutive delayed withdrawal of monsoon. The withdrawal of the monsoon from northwest India marks the beginning of its retreat from the Indian subcontinent. Any delay in the monsoon's retreat means a longer rainy season, which can significantly impact agricultural production, particularly for northwest India where monsoon rainfall plays a crucial role in the Rabi crop production.
