and post-monsoon seasons. Bhor station shows maximum change in the magnitude of trend for annual and monsoon series. The wavelet analysis shows that periodicity of 2 - 8 years is found in annual rainfall after 1960 confirming the well-known fact that more changes in the rainfall pattern have occurred after 1960. The analysis shows that larger anthropogenic trends are embedded in the climate data in the baseline period i.e. during 1961 to 1990. It is possible that climatic changes taking place after 1960 might have affected the rainfall pattern in the basin which needs further investigations. The analysis of rainfall data and findings shall be useful for irrigation and agricultural managers and may play an important role in managing water resources in the basin.
