Meteorological drought is a big disaster for any type planning of agriculture in India. By the analysis of 60 years rainfall data of Solapur district, which is taken by agricultural department, maximum years have no drought, in relation to deviation from long term average rainfall (±19 %, no draught, moderate drought between deficiency -20 to -59 % and deficiency more than -60 % severe droughts). Severe drought occurred only in three years, moderate drought occurred in about ten years and for maximum years no draught intensity of rainfall condition has occurred. To get the intensity of drought, parameters are used which are suggested by IMD, 1971. Minimum intensity of rainfall is found in 1968 and maximum intensity of rainfall in 1956. In spite of having normal rainfall for maximum years, Solapur faces water scarcity problem for maximum part of the year. It is necessary to prepare a management plan for the development of water resources to reduce water scarcity.
