So due to non advance of SWM in Maharashtra and very less pre monsoon rains, Kharif sowing over large parts of state mainly in Marathwada & Vidarbha has been halted as yet!
Total Maharashtra State (All Dams) has just 6.29% live storage as on today !! Same day last year till today we had 18.98% storage ! So it shows how less water we have for current year due to bad monsoon in last Aug-Sep 2018.
