The Southwest Monsoon Period typically takes place between June to September annually. In July 2019, several cities in Maharashtra have experienced sporadic heavy rains that caused severe waterlogging and flooding. These may cause disruptions to travel and other inconveniences.
For personal safety, Singaporeans travelling to or residing in the affected areas during this period are advised to keep abreast of media reports and exercise caution when making travel plans to avoid areas that may be affected by flooding. As domestic and international flights may be affected due to heavy rains, you should contact your airlines for status updates. We also recommend you monitor local weather news and heed the instructions of the local Indian authorities. You may obtain real-time updates from the Indian Meteorological Department. Singaporeans are also encouraged to e-Register with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and keep your family and friends updated on your travel plans within India.
