Which are the main rivers in the Peninsular India flowing into the Arabian Sea?


SOLUTION
Although many rivers originating in western ghats drain into Arabian sea, the major 2 rivers are Narmada and Tapi. Both originate in the vindhyas and Satpura ranges and finally drain into the Arabian sea.
Indus too drains into the arabian sea but Indus is a himalayan river and not the peninsular one.
On the other hand, many large peninsular rivers like Mahanadi, Godavari, krishna and Kaveri drain in Bay of Bengal.
Himalayan rivers Ganga and Brahmputra also fall in the Bay of Bengal.
This is also the reason why Bay of Bengal is less saline than Arabian Sea.
