Meanwhile, the toll in the flood-hit city of Pune rose to 12 on Thursday. Over 10,000 people have been evacuated to safer locations by disaster relief agencies.
So far, at least 150 houses have collapsed due to a sudden surge in water flows following heavy rainfall in the region.
The India Meteorological Department (IMD) issued a bulletin on Thursday saying that rains in Pune would subside after 27 September. The weather monitoring body said the city and adjoining areas were hit by rains due to the presence of a cyclonic circulation that started over the Bay of Bengal and has now moved onto the land.
All schools and colleges have been closed in Pune district and neighbouring regions.
The chief minister of the state of Maharashtra, Devendra Fadnavis, said he was pained over the loss of lives and added that all necessary assistance is being provided to the affected areas.
