The Topographical features greatly influence the quantum of rainfall of any given region in the Monsoon tropics. Hindupur is no exception to the universal dictum. Situated far away from the eastern coast on the one hand, and effectively isolated by the Western Ghats on the other, Hindupur stands to double disadvantage of not receiving either of the monsoons in full. Hindupur receives the bulk of its rainfall between August and October. The annual average rainfall approximates to 55 cm. Rainfall here is not only inadequate but also uncertain and is widely fluctuating from year to year. Failure of monsoons in any year is bound to result in shortage of drinking water, not to speak of agricultural requirements. A good harvest and man's prosperity and well being depend largely upon the quantum of rainfall with an eye on the sky, the farmer places his hands on the plough here. So much has been the dependence of the people on the monsoon for raising crops. There is no other single group of weather phenomena, which is so far reaching in its effects on man's economic life, as the rain fall in this region.
The Rainfall is sparse and spasmodic. Borewells provide the ray of hope for drinking water purposes. Though there are rivers like Penna and Kumudwathi, they remain dry throughout the year. There are no perennial rivers in the vicinity of Hindupur which results in excess dependence on underground water. Over-exploitation of groundwater and indiscriminate drilling of bores for the past few years has caused depletion of the groundwater table and drying of bore wells in most cases. The poor, despite their low income, are left with no other option, but to purchase two or three pots for drinking purposes, or drink the same ground water with salinity and other impurities. Urban Poor There are 53 poor settlements both notified and un-notified. Of the total population of the City of 1,51,835, the population in the Notified Poor Settlements is 137560 constituting 60% of total population of City as per 2011 census. This shows that most of the poor people are living in the slums. The poorest of the poor live in a state or utter dependency as casual labour and petty artisans, struggling to make both ends meet, barely surviving on the margin of life, sunk neck-deep in the whirlpool of poverty. As a result of low rainfall and recurring droughts, depletion of underground water table and lack of irrigation, poor people living in the surrounding villages migrate to the City in search of a better life. This exodus of poor from villages surround the City in search of better livelihood opportunities resulting in a continuous extension of existing poor settlements and creation of new settlements of the poor. Many poor people inhabit village poramboke sites or farmer villages on the outskirts of the city. The merger of six panchayats in the Municipality and migration of poor people from the surrounding villages in search of some sort of livelihood contributed to the emergence of large number of poor settlements without any basic civic amenities and services, like shelter, drainage, water supply, health, education and livelihood.
