Monsoon rains to arrive on India's southern coast on May 29

NEW DELHI, May 18 (Reuters) - India’s monsoon rains are expected to arrive on the southern Kerala coast on May 29, India’s weather office said in a statement on Friday.

India looks likely to receive average monsoon rains in 2018, the weather office said last month, raising the possibility of higher farm and economic growth in Asia’s third-biggest economy, where half of the farmland lacks irrigation. (Reporting by Sudarshan Varadhan Editing by Keith Weir)
