Physical Features

Bihar can be divided into three distinct regions i.e. the North Gangetic plains, Central Bihar, and South Bihar plateau.

The North Gangetic plain is an extension of the Terai region of Nepal with many tributaries of the Ganges like Kosi, Gandak, Baghmati, and Kamla Balan flowing through it. It is a flood prone region and one of the most backward regions in the country.

Central Bihar, south of the Ganges, is a region with rich agricultural resources.

The South Bihar plateau is the largest mineral-producing region in the country with some of the best-known industries in the country like TISCO, TELCO, Bokaro Steel Plant etc.
