There are four geographical regions of India. They are
- The Great Himalayan Range,
- The Indo Gangetic Plain,
- The Desert Regions
- The Deccan Plateau and Peninsula.
The near-level Indo-Gangetic Plains, among the greatest stretches of the flat alluvium in the world, are formed by the basins of three rivers-the Sind, the Ganga and the Brahmaputra. This extends across Northern India for about 2,400 Km with a width varying from 260 to 350 Km. It is almost the most densely populated area in the whole earth. It is a little over a quarter as large as the mountain region.
