Default Re: Chambal River

The Chambal River is a tributary of the Yamuna River in central India, and thus forms part of the greater Gangetic drainage system. It flows north-northeast through Madhya Pradesh, running for a time through Rajasthan, then forming the boundary between Rajasthan and Madhya Pradesh before turning southeast to join the Yamuna in Uttar Pradesh state.

It is a renowned river and finds mention in ancient scriptures too. The constant Chambal originates at Manpura, south of Mhow town, near Indore, on the south slope of the Vindhya Range in Madhya Pradesh.

The River and its tributaries drain the Malwa region of northwestern Madhya Pradesh, while its tributary, the Banas, which rises in the Aravalli Range, drains southeastern Rajasthan.

It ends a confluence of five rivers, including the Chambal, Kwari, Yamuna, Sind, Pahuj, at Pachnada near Bhareh in Uttar Pradesh state, at the border of Bhind and Etawah districts.

The Chambal River is considered pollution free, and hosts an amazing riverine faunal assemblage including 2 species of crocodilians – the mugger and gharial, 8 species of freshwater turtles, smooth-coated otters, gangetic river dolphins, skimmers, black-bellied terns, sarus cranes and black-necked storks, amongst others.

Tributaries of Chambal River

Major tributaries of the Chambal river include the following
• Choti Kalisindh
• Shipra
• Retam
• Sivanna
• Kalisindh
• Ansar
• Parbati
• Banas
• Kuwari
• Seep
• Alnia
• Kuno
• Chakan
• Mej
• Chamla
• Parwati
• Lakhunder
• Gambhir
• Bangeri
• Khan
• Teelar
• Kedel

Dams on Chambal River

From an economical point of view, the Chambal River is very important to India as it houses four dams.

The oldest of these, the Gandhi Sagar is located at the entrance of the Kanjarda Plateau. This dam has five generators, each of them producing 23 MW of energy.

Another dam, near Kota, was started in 1952 as part of India’s first 5-year plan.

The third dam, the Jawahar Sagar dam was the third to be built on Chambal, and the last dam is the Rana Pratap Sagar Dam.

Chambal River as a Tourist Attraction

The Chambal River was relatively pollution free, especially when compared to other Indian rivers. In 1979 the National Chambal Sanctuary was set up. The sanctuary is 425 km long, and 2-6 km wide.

It is a place where eco-tourism is widely practiced, and the site is excellent for bird watching or crocodile watching.

However, in recent years the human pollution has made its way into the river, threatening the eco system that thrived with little human interaction.

Unfortunately, factory and farming runoff and garbage are starting to affect the region.
