Expert Answer:

India is a country with rich natural resources. She has been endowed with plenty of metallic and non- metallic minerals. However, these minerals are unevenly distributed due to variations in geological structures and various natural processes. For example:

  • Most of the coal, metallic and non metallic minerals are found in the Peninsular India.
  • Sedimentary rocks on the western and eastern flanks of the peninsula, in Gujarat and Assam have most of the petroleum deposits.
  • While Rajasthan has reserves of many non-ferrous minerals, the alluvial plains of north India are almost devoid of economic minerals.
