Waterways  

India is the largest peninsula in the world with a coastline of about 6000kms with 12 major ports and 163 minor / intermediate ports. Nature has given us a more impressive, nearly 14500 kms of navigable and potentially navigable inland waterways - which include a network of rivers, lakes and canals.

The Inland Waterways Authority of India (IWAI), an apex body for development and regulation of inland waterways for shipping and navigation has identified ten waterways fro initial consideration fro development out of which three have declared as National Waterways which are:

National Waterway No 1 (NW-1) - The Ganga (North India)
  
The Ganga-Bhagirathi-Hooghly River System connecting Haldia-Kolkatta (Calcutta) - Farakka - Munger - Patna - Varanasi - Allahabad

The NW-1 stretches to more than 1620 Kms of potentially navigable waterways. River conservancy works, dredging, day channel marking and bandalling are carried out on a year-to-year basis. Provisions for 1.5 - 2m depth channels, night navigational facilities are in the process of implementation.
