Train services in Mumbai have been cancelled on Thursday amid the monsoon's heavy rains that disrupted daily life in the city.   

The maximum rainfall was recorded in the suburban areas, with Kandivali and Malad said to have received around 45 mm rainfall, India's Metrological department (MET) said.

According to MET department data, 21mm of rainfall was recorded in Colaba (south Mumbai), while 75 mm of downpour was observed in Santacruz (north Mumbai), as observed until Thursday morning.

Road and rail traffic were also hit by the first heavy rainfall brought on by the arrival of monsoon this year.

According to Central railway officials, most of the central railway trains were running up to 30 minutes late because of signal congestion at certain points.

However, most of the flights and suburban train's services were running on schedule and no major roadblocks have been reported so far.

The weather department has issued warnings that Mumbai as well as neighboring regions of Konkan might receive heavy to very heavy rainfall in the next 24 hours.
