While we neglected Our biggest waterways (River Ganga and Brahmaputra) this is what China built along Yangtze now they’re gonna upgrade this economic belt to a whole new level I hope someday we will also develop this kind of economic belt along river Ganga and Brahmaputra

You are really going bonker , the level of chinese construction us not similar to mumbai even ,they are just rampage in it , also who will visit bihar or bengal or up , what will they set up there , give a detailed info ,you want the growth but nothing comes out of thin air , rhese tall building and all are fascinating enough but whether they are required or not us another point , why build ghost cities , or even better ,you want that we fuck other program and invest tons of money in this waterways glittering cities , that's not the way mate , ut never worked out like that . How will you bring investment here , as a company don't come alone it requires other player in affinity , otherwise they will be commiting suicide , water ways will develop but going all bonker on any topic you read is totally not fine , something require time to work out .


It's not a bad plan but a long term plan ,you want major investment but industry are not willing to , either you throw heaps of money to them for satisfying your desire for these projects , or you go long term with a proper vision .


Analyse it .

If we cannot make such cities , ports and industrial clusters alongside river Ganga and Brahmaputra then we should stop tallking about competing with China
China transports 47% of their freight using inland waterways they have strategically developed this economic belt along river Yangtze to bring down the transportation cost that’s why their products are cheap
Economy of China is 16 trillion dollar already and here we are tallking whether India can become 5 trillion dollar economy or not
Btw if we can not compete with China then we should atleast try to compete with Bangladesh because even Bangladesh transports 35% of their freight using inland waterways we transport only 3% of our freight using inland waterways

But WHAT WILL YOU TRANPORT, NAME THE COMMODITY, our industrial cluster are located differently , you require time to get industry along water ways , first ask bihar to lure industry

Industries follow waterways and not the other way around , developing the infrastructure is the first step
industries will mushroom along waterways like it happened in China and USA and European Union
Even Vietnam has very good and sophisticated network of inland waterways for freight transportation

I've sailed over Yangtze river trice.
Traffic density is very high.

What best thing about that is China had setup manufacturing unit along the river bank and factories have their own Pier/Jetty.

Which makes cargo movement very fast.
I see , it means pick up your stuff from da sweatshops

Yeah I have read a lot of articles and watched several videos about the economic belt alongside river Yangtze we can do the same along river Ganga
River Ganga is much wider than Yangtze (in Bihar and Bengal)

Infrastructure along Yangtze river is tremendous. Industrial setup, office space, shopping complex. And what not.
Even have Ship yards.
It's a well dredge Channel
By seeing infra I actually became fan of China.
They did have worked hard for their country.
Forget China see what Bangladesh has achieved
Bangladesh has now over 200 shipbuilding companies, mostly concentrated in Dhaka, Chittagong, Narayanganj, Barisal and Khulna.
if this can happen in Bangladesh then why not in Bengal , Assam and Bihar these states just like Bangladesh are riverine too
See this video shipbuilding in a rural area of Bangladesh

UP, Bihar, Jharkhand and West Bengal should come together and deregulate their labor market. The region is already connected by massive rivers. Expressways and Fast rail should be built to connect it further.

This region houses 32% of India and share a single river basin that would allow very rapid construction. Resources from Jharkhand can easily power the industries in the region.

The entire Indo-Gangetic plain can be turned into a massive assembly line, starting form Western UP and ending in the BoB.

DFC is a cool idea and will lead to growth of our nation, but if the nation want to be truly prosperous, it has bring large scale manufacturing to the Indo-Gangetic plains.

Nepal , Bangladesh , Myanmar , Thailand and Vietnam can also be included in this economic corridor being developed along river Ganga , Hooghly , Brahmaputra etc
Roads and railways are capital intensive maintenance heavy and land acquisition takes a lot of time and creates a lot of controversy on top of that Transporting freight through roads or even railways is ultra expensive in comparison to Inland Waterways
A small country like Vietnam exports more than India and they have one of the best inland waterways transportation system same with China and USA
