An investigation has been carried out to govern the monthly, seasonal and annual rainfall variations in urban landscapes of the Bengaluru region, India for the period 2007-2015. Maximum rainfall of 790.55mm occurred in 2007 with 98 rainy days. Maximum rainfall of 95.64mm was received in the month of September during Southwest monsoon season. Greatest rainfall was received from the months of both southwest and northeast monsoons. Also, measuring rainfall forms a very important input for the economic planning of the country. Based on the outcomes, the configurations of soil and water conservation for the crop forecasting and management can be premeditated. Thus, conservation methods can be prepared for the agricultural practices and/improvements made through by the restoration of ponds and water check-dams.
