New Delhi: With El Nino effect easing, the weatherman is hoping for a better monsoon this year after a gap of almost two years, news which can prove to be a breather for beleaguered farmers.

Rajeevan, secretary, ministry of earth science. He, however, refused to comment further saying the department will come out with its initial forecast report in April this year. For a second consecutive year, the monsoon was deficient in the country, leading to drought like conditions in many parts.
