India has the second highest average temperature in the world according to data released today by the United Nations.
Assam is ranked second in the list with a maximum temperature of 15.3 degrees Celsius, followed by Bangladesh with a record-high of 18.2 degrees.
The UN Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC) said the highest temperature recorded was in Assam at 15.7 degrees Celsius in November last year.
The previous record was 14.8 degrees in August 2001.
The country has been battling heatwaves for the last few months and the record high temperature was set in July, when the average temperature was 15.1 degrees Celsius.
India has recorded more than 50 heatwaves in the last 10 years.
The government is looking into ways to tackle heatwaves, but it said it was not looking at imposing measures.
The weather is changing, and there are natural cycles that can change the temperature in certain places.
