Plastic waste has become a significant source of pollution in India, the world's second-most populous country. Rapid economic growth has fuelled demand for goods that come with single-use plastic products, such as straws and disposable cutlery. But India, which uses about 14 million tons of plastic annually, lacks an organized system for managing plastic waste, leading to widespread littering. Streets across towns are littered with used plastic goods that eventually choke drains, rivers and oceans and also kill animals. The government has decided to set up control rooms to check any illegal use, sale, and distribution of single-use plastic products.

India received 8% lower rainfall than average in June because of a scanty monsoon in the central parts of the country. Monsoon rains are likely to be average or above average over some regions of northern India, central India and most parts of southern India, the weather office said. It said that most regions in the eastern and northeastern parts of the country are likely to receive average to below average monsoon rains. Some regions where monsoon rains are expected to be average or below average fall under the country's rice belt. As India's summer-sown rice accounts for more than 85% of its annual production of 129.66 million tonnes, monsoon rains play a crucial role in determining the crop size.
