(1)Western Ghats receive rainfall from the Arabian sea monsoon winds.As these winds blow over warm oceans,they bring abundant moisture.
(2)The Ghats do not allow the winds to cross over without shedding their moisture on the western slopes.
(3)when these winds reach the eastern coast they are almost dry.
(4)Another branch of south-west monsoon i.e, the Bay of Bengal branch moves parallel to the eastern coast.In this way,this region is located in an unfavourable position with reference of the monsoon winds.
