    (i) Western Coastal Strip

    (ii) Eastern Coastal Strip

    The differences between these two Peninsular plateaus are stated below

    Western Coastal Strip

    Eastern Coastal Strip

    It is sandwiched between the Weterns Ghats and Arabian Sea.

    It lies between the Eastern Ghats and Bay of Bengal.

    It is a narrow plain.

    It is little broader than the Western coastal plain.

    It consists of three sections. The Northern part of the coast is called Konkan (Mumbai-Goa) coast, the central part is known as Kannad plain and the Southern stretch is called the Malabar coast.

    It consists of two main sections. In the Northern part, it is referred to as the Northern Circar. In Southern part, it is known as Coromandel coast.

    The rivers flowing in this region are short and fast flowing. The major Westward flowing rivers are Narmada and Tapi.

    The rivers flowing in this region are much larger and broader. The major rivers which make deltas are the Mahanadi, the Godavari, the Krishna and the Kaveri.
