New Delhi: To develop an advanced system for accurate monsoon forecasting, the Ministry of Earth Sciences (MoES) has proposed to establish a National Mission on Monsoon.

"The national level implementation mechanism is being worked out and a steering committee shall be constituted for overseeing the Mission implementation," Chavan told the Rajya Sabha.

Currently, the India Meteorological Department (IMD) uses statistical models for the prediction of seasonal monsoon rainfall over India. However, the National Mission on Monsoon envisages developing India-specific dynamical model framework that would outperform the existing suite of models available today.
