Waterways are considered the cheapest means of transport.
In India, the inland waterways of Northern India are better developed than that in Southern India because of the following reasons:
1. The demand of waterways is more in Northern India than in Southern India which makes the construction of Inland waterways economical in Northern India.
2. The presence of waterfalls in Southern India acts as a hindrance in the development of waterways. There are dangerous steep falls in the rivers of Southern India which has declined the popularity of inland waterways in the region.
3. There is a regular flow of water in sufficient quantity of water in the water bodies of North India.
