According to the Indian meteorological department (IMO), March 2015 has been the "wettest" March for nothern and central parts of the country in the past 100 years.

Excessive rains made extensive damage to field and horticulture crops as well as vegetbles in various parts of the country, IMD's Dr. L.S. Rathore said.

"The ordeal is not yet over. Though March as we all know was very wet, it was to the extent that after 1915, this was the wettest March particularly in north India right up to central India. But in the next two weeks also there seems to be a possibility or higher possibility of wetness," he said. 

Finance minister Arun Jaitley said they will work with state governments to raise the compensation limit for farmers affected by unseasonal rains and hailstorms
