Development of Potential Waterways
Barring the Brahmaputra (National Waterway-I) and Barak (to be soon declared as National Waterway-VI), which are being developed by the Inland Waterways Authority of India, the smaller rivers in the region also have great potential for being developed as waterways. Therefore, identifying the potential waterways in the region becomes necessary so that waterway development, navigational aids, terminal facilities, etc. can be developed. Integrated development of waterways can generate waterway grid for North Eastern Region that may in future help shift cargo traffic from road transport to the cheaper and eco-friendly inland waterways.
