Rainfall data

In response to an RTI petition filed by the South Asia Network on Dams, Rivers and People, the Indian Meteorological Department (IMD) has made rainfall data for the past few years available at a monthly level, for each district of the country on their website.

India Water Portal has imported all the data from 2004-2010 into a spreadsheet that you can download and save for future use.

Raingauge stations list

IMD archives and supplies rainfall data of raingauge stations of the country. The spelling of the station names are given as information received from regional offices. However availability of data is not uniform for all these stations and the same may be checked with the National Data Centre of India Meteorological Department, Pune.


We thank Sailendra Mishra, RN Divakar, Samuel Rajkumar, Shubham Singh, Nisreen Ahmed and Nisha Thompson, for helping us extract and post this data in the public domain.


While India Water Portal has taken significant effort to ensure the validity of the data, we are not responsible for any errors that may have occurred.
