Title

MANAGEMENT AND PLANNING OF GANDAK BASIN: A GEOGRAPHICAL ANALYSIS

Abstract

Burhi Gandak is a left bank tributary of the Ganga River. It is meandering in nature and flows in the southeast direction. The Burhi Gandak river basin is bounded by Himalaya in the north, by Ganga River in south, by Kosi River in the east, and by Great Gandak River on the west and makes the eastern boundary of the Gandak Megafan . It originates in the terai area of Chautarwa Chaur near Bishambharpur, West Champaran district in Bihar state . It is known as Sikrana in its upper reaches. Harha, originating near Someshwar Hill, receives water from many small mountainous rivers and is known as Masan when it comes to plain and is the main source of water to Sikrana. Singha, another mountainous river, originating near Someshwar Hill, splits into two, one joins Harha/Masan near Churharwa and the other known as Ramrekha joins Sikrana. Masan and Ramrekha rivers join to form Sikrana at Lauria Nandangarh, and contribute significantly to its discharge. Dhanauti, a highly sinuous almost abandoned river (field observation), meets with Sikrana near Pakridayal village, Motihari, and after this confluence, the Sikrana is known as Burhi Gandak.
