The Northern Indian Plains are flat lands with no variation in relief features. Do you agree? Give reasons in support of your answer.

No, I do not agree that the Northern Indian Plains have no variation in relief features. The river flowing down from the Himalayas deposit sediments in a belt known as bhabar which runs parallel to the slopes of the Siwaliks. On the south of this belt exists the wet, swampy and marshy region known as the terai region. This region was densely covered with forests and was rich in flora and fauna. However, the forests were later brought down for the expansion of agriculture.

Most of the northern plains are formed of the older alluvium soil which is known as the bhangar plains. They lie above the flood plains of the river and present terrace-like features.

Therefore, we can say the Northern Indian Plains have variation in relief features.
