Answer:

Dear Riya,

Inland waterways in India consist of the Ganges (Ganga)–Bhagirathi–Hooghly rivers, the Brahmaputra, the Barak river, the rivers in Goa, the backwaters in Kerala, inland waters in Mumbai and the deltaic regions of the Godavari - Krishna rivers.

Role in Indian Economy: They help in transportation of goods from one region to  the other within the country. Waterways are also the cheaper means of transport.
