Indian Summer Monsoon Rainfall (ISMR) of 2015 showed a deficit of 14% in the seasonal rainfall. Many researchers connected this deficit to the El-Nino which developed in late May. In this study an analysis of major ENSO events and its influence on ISMR during the period 1975 till present have been carried out. The behavior of ISMR during the previous El-Nino/La-Nina years has been compared with that of 2015. Preliminary analysis shows the effects of El-Nino on ISMR of 2015 started mainly from July. This is attributed to Madden Julian Oscillation (MJO) by many scientists. Analysis of spatial and temporal correlations of SST of various Nino regions with the ISMR and of MJO will also be presented in detail.
