Majority of the places witnessed widespread rainfall activity as the fourth spell of monsoon is in progress. Jaipur received a rainfall of 160mm, which was highest in the state.

Heavy rainfall also affected traffic on highways connecting Jaipur to Agra, Jaipur to Delhi and Jaipur to Ajmer. Due to heavy waterlogging and big potholes on the highways, commuters had a harrowing time as they got stuck in long jams for hours.
“Jaipur received a good rainfall almost after a fortnight. On Sunday, only light rainfall will occur in Jaipur,” said an officer of Met office.
He added that this spell of monsoon has been fruitful as the state has received nearly 80% more rainfall compared to the period last year.
