An elongated Ghat section adorns its eastern, southern and western coastline. Further, the country boasts of the huge Deccan Plateau in its center. Owing to such diversity, the climate of India differs from place to place.
In fact, the climatic conditions in India vary regionally with changing the terrains and landforms. However, India is primarily a tropical country and Indian climate, diverse as it is, can be broadly segmented into four major seasons.
