If I am falling a great height and manage to cast meld into stone before hitting the ground (which happens to be stone, such as a cavern floor), would I suffer falling damage?

Consider the fall to be a great enough height that I can take an action during the fall. I was thinking that I could simply cast it during the fall and the spell would take effect upon impact.

No, it won't save you

From the Meld Into Stone spell description:

You step into a stone object or surface large enough to fully contain your body, melding yourself and all the equipment you carry with the stone for the duration. Using your movement, you step into the stone at a point you can touch.

Falling isn't stepping, so I wouldn't say it's an appropriate interpretation of the description of the spell.
