;}. Natural Calamities and Measures undertaken to Relieyethe
Distress (4) Bailstowi Thtie weuc good winter rains in the be-
oinnui* oi the year 1954 throughout the State which proved bene-
ficial tDo standing crops. At i lew places, however, showeis of rain
were mifortimately accompanied by hailstonns. The worst affected
diatricts in this respect were Bijnor, Banaraa, Jhanfli, Sahaianpur and

(B) Floods  The monsoon this year slmlL-d lather Jate. Ay al-
ready stated earlier, serveral livers in the eastern pait of the State,
viz. Ghagra, Raptij Banganga, Kauua, Rohin, Bari Gaudak, etc.
overflowed their banks causing widespread damage to crops and house
properties m the eastern parts of the titato, particulaiiy in the distiicts
of Deoria, Gorakhpm1, Basti, Gonda, Azamgaih, Kheii, Bara Banki,
Sitapur, Bahi-aich and Jhansi. Though floods are an annual pheno-
menon m these parts of the State and people are not un-accustomed, to
them, the abnormal feature of the floods during 1954 was that almost
all the main rivers swelled suddenly after the outbreak of monsoon.
Th3 protective embankments failed in semal places to resist the
onrush of ttood waters giving way, allowing the water to spread far
and wide.

(U) Dro'iiyhL  Extensive areas in this State were severaly affected
by drought particularly in the distiicts of Mirzapur, Banaras, and
parts of district Jaunpur. In sonic districts while parts suffered from
floods due to abnormally heavy rains up the streams, the uplands
suffered from drought. Due to partial lailurc of crops scarcity con-
ditions also appeared in some areas of the hill districts of Almora,
Garhwal and Tehri-Garhwal.

sanctioned the following relief in the shape of gratuitous relief, talcavi,
