Rajasthan is situated in the north-western part of India. The State's scorching and dry summers and its parched landscape are undergoing significant changes because of the developmental effort taken over by the respective governments.

The southern part of Rajasthan is about 225 km from the Gulf of Kutch and is about 400 km from the Arabian Sea. Rajasthan is bounded by Pakistan in the north-west, State of Punjab in the north, Haryana in the north-east, Uttar Pradesh in the east, Madhya Pradesh in the south-east and Gujarat in the south-west.

The Aravali mountain ranges divide the State through south-east and north-west. The north-west region covering two-thirds of the state consist mostly of sand dunes. Bikaner, Jaisalmer, Jodhpur and part of the Jhunjhunu districts form part of this region.

The climate of Rajasthan varies from semi arid to arid. The mercury touches around 50 degrees centigrade and drops below freezing point during winter.

Though the average annual rainfall ranges between 200-400 mm, it is as low as 150 mm in extreme arid zones and is as high as 1000 mm in the south eastern part of the State. Most of the rainfall (60-80%) is received with the South west monsoon in the period from July to September.
