THEIndia occupies most of the Indian subcontinent, which is placed between the tectonic plate of the India and the north-western part of the indo-Australian plate. A part of the territory of the States of the North and northeast of the India is located in the mountains of the Himalayas. The rest of the Northern, Central, and Eastern India is occupied by the fertile indo-Gangetic plain. In the western part, bordered by Pakistan to the Southeast, lies the Thar desert. The South India consists almost entirely of the Peninsular Deccan plateau flanked by two massive coastal hilly terrain, the Western Ghats and the Eastern Ghats.

Major rivers and rivers such as the Ganges, the Brahmaputra, Yamuna, the Godavari, the Narmada, the Kaveri across the country.
