List of National Waterways in India | ভারতের জাতীয় জলপথের তালিকা

List of National Waterways in India : ভারত, একটি উপদ্বীপীয় দেশ হওয়ায় একটি দক্ষ নৌপথের পরিবহনের জন্য বিশাল সুযোগ প্রদান করে। ভারত 14,500 কিলোমিটার উপকূলরেখা দিয়ে সমৃদ্ধ এবং তাই এটি পরিবহনের একটি অর্থনৈতিক উপায় হিসাবে প্রমাণিত। সড়ক বা রেলপথের উন্নয়নের চেয়ে নৌপথের উন্নয়ন কম চ্যালেঞ্জিং কারণ জমি অধিগ্রহণের সমস্যা নেই।
