ADILABAD : From June to September, the average normal rainfall that Adilabad receives is 948.2 mm. But, in 2015 the district received an average rainfall of 805.2 mm, recording a 19 per cent deficit.
The mandals where the rainfall deficit was more than 25 percent are Kagaznagar (32 pc), Kuntala (35), Tanur (50), Mudhole (34), Lohesra (36), Mamada (48), Khanapur (44), Kaddem (39), Narnoor (43) and Bheemini (25).
Yet, surprisingly, no mandal in the district has been declared drought-hit. As a consequence, the district is not in a position to get the required funds to take up drought relief works.
