The daily rainfall records of about 5000 stations in India, during the monsoon periods of several decades, have been examined for occurrence of heavy rainfall. The point values of (i) the highest annual rainfalls, (ii) the highest rainfalls of one, two, and three day durations, and (iii) the highest hourly values, are presented in the form of tables and charts. The highest depth-area-duration values for twelve storm-centres are also given.
