Kolkata: The Monsoon is all set to hit North Bengal within the next three days but for the South Bengal districts, it might take some more time. There may be some pre-monsoon rains in the South Bengal districts including Kolkata. Various South Bengal districts received moderate to heavy rainfall on Monday morning disrupting normal life. According to the Regional Meteorological Centre at Alipore, South Bengal districts including the city may witness thunderstorms as a result of pre-Monsoon rains within the next 48 hours before the advent of Monsoon in the state.

A favourable atmosphere for rain has already been prevailing in the Himalayan regions. Various South Bengal districts including North 24-Parganas, Nadia, Murshidabad, Hooghly, Howrah and parts of the city received moderate to heavy rainfall on Monday morning. “Local clouds have started forming due to the impact of approaching Monsoon. It will trigger mild thunderstorms mainly in the North Bengal districts. However, there is hardly any possibility of squall in the city and the South Bengal districts. Cloud masses which have been floating in from the neighbouring areas for the past few days are not potent enough to initiate a squall in the Southern parts,” a senior official of the weather office said.

The currents have started advancing towards North Bengal. It is expected that Monsoon currents will arrive in North Bengal by the middle of this week.However, it is difficult to predict the date of the arrival of Monsoon in South Bengal and Kolkata as there is no clear indication to the weather office. This is because there is no low-pressure or any cyclonic circulation over the Bay of Bengal. The Monsoon is not likely to hit this week as there is no such system prevailing over the Bay of Bengal.

According to sources, Chatterjee held a meeting with Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee about the status of vacant seats in colleges.It may be mentioned that out of 1.3 lakh seats in various CU affiliated colleges, around 40,000 are still lying vacant. The earlier deadline for admission was July 10 and the university found that seats were lying vacant at Surendranath College, Jaipuria College, South City College, Dinabandhu Andrews College, Sris Chandra college, North City College and Seth Surjamal Jalan College to name a few. The colleges had already written to CU, urging it to extend the dates for admission.

He had warned the colleges of strong action if they admit students beyond their intake capacity. Asked about his response to the reintroduction of admission tests in Jadavpur University, Chatterjee said, “It (JU) is an autonomous institution. The government won’t interfere in its functioning.”JU had recently witnessed a hunger strike by students in protest against the decision of the authorities to scrap admission test in six Humanities subjects. A section of teachers had also lent support to the students. The university finally yielded to the pressure and reintroduced entrance tests for the 6 subjects last week.
