It is due to the monsoon seasons. India experiences the tropical monsoon climates, during with the month of June and September experience the southwest monsoon and during October to January experiences the northwest monsoon. Monsoon brings with it lots of rain moving down along the globe as the winds pick up lots of water which becomes water vapor forming precipitation(rain). Hence, bulk of rainfall in India is concentrated over a few months, with different parts experiencing different times of heavy rain
