Moneycontrol Bureau There are chances that India may witness below normal rainfall this year due to the emergence of El Nino effect, said weather forecasting agency Skymet. This could spell some bad news for the agricultural sector as low or deficient rains could hurt farm output, thus impacting the overall growth. Also Read: Govt expects all-time high foodgrain production this year In a first indication towards the monsoon pattern in India, Skymet said the country may see an emerging stage of the El Nino phenomena through the monsoon months. Taking a cautious stance on the forecast as outlook often changes when the Summer sets in, Skymet said this year's Monsoon will probably not experience a La-Nina year (excess rainfall). Thus, there is a lesser chance of excess rain. "The chances of below normal rainfall are slightly higher than normal as of now," said the Skymet report.
