Cloud-seeding for Pune district’s catchment areas starts today

Pune: In what could bring respite for people in Pune district that has recorded deficient rainfall this monsoon, authorities plan to undertake cloud-seeding in parched areas from Wednesday. “Moisture-laden clouds will be cloud-seeded,” stated an advisory issued by India Meteorological Department and Indian Institute of Tropical Meteorology (IITM) based in Pune. However, officials said permission from the Indian Air Force had been sought for necessary flight operations from the Lohegaon airport and a green signal was awaited. Once the nod is granted, cloud-seeding could commence towards Wednesday afternoon, they said.
