cheap transportation, electricity and livelihood for a large number of people all over the country.
Also, since the land near rivers is very fertile, it serves a number of agricultural purposes too. As
a result, almost all the major cities and towns of India are located by the banks of rivers. In

Ghats (Western India); or the Vindhya and Satpura mountain ranges (Central India). Most of
the major rivers of India end up joining the Bay of Bengal or the Arabian Sea.
