Chandigarh, the joint capital of Punjab and Haryana, received 48 millimeters rainfall, the meteorological department said. The city had received 29.1 mm of rainfall on Monday.

Besides Chandigarh, its periphery areas, including Mohali, Kharar and Zirakpur also witnessed rains.

The downpour, however, caused water logging at several roundabouts and roads in the union territory and its periphery areas leading to traffic snarls.

Patiala and Amritsar in Punjab, and Hisar and Ambala in Haryana also received rainfall, giving a boost to cultivation of kharif crops, especially paddy.
