Maharashtra plans cloud seeding to combat monsoon blues

The revenue, relief and rehabilitation ministry issued tenders last month inviting bids for cloud seeding operations in different parts of the state.

The government is ready with contingency plans in 580 districts to deal with poor monsoon, Agriculture Minister Radha Mohan Singh said on Tuesday.
The central bank on Tuesday cut key rates by 25 basis points, taking repo rate to 7.25 per cent and reverse repo rate to 6.25 per cent.
Unlike last year, monsoon is forecast to be normal in 2015, auguring well for the economy. Rainfall was 12 per cent below normal in 2014.
