The Arabian Sea is one of the crucial marinel trade routes since 3rd and 2nd millennium BCE. It includes many important seaports. The two important branches of the Arabian sea are; the Gulf of Oman and the Gulf of Aden. Complete Answer: The two prominent rivers which drain into the Arabian Sea are Narmada and Tapi. NARMADA RIVER:The Narmada River is known as the "Life Line of Madhya Pradesh and Gujarat". This is because it has played a huge role for these states in several ways. Narmada arises from Amarkantak Plateau in Madhya Pradesh. The Narmada is the largest west flowing river of the Indian Peninsula. It is also the fifth largest river in the country. TAPI RIVER:The Tapti River flows through central India between the Godavari and Narmada rivers. It flows westwards before draining into the Arabian Sea. The river has its origin in the eastern Satpura Range of southern part of Madhya Pradesh. It is only navigable by vessels of small tonnage; and the port of Swally at its mouth.The upper stretches of the river are now abandoned, owing to silting at the outflow of the river. The waters of the Tapti are usually not fit for irrigation. Note: -One of the fundamental steps attempted by the government to reduce river pollution is the National River Conservation Plan (NRCP), a national, top-down programme targeting the domestic pollution that goes into the surface water. -Under the Inter-State Water Disputes Act, 1956, the Central Government built the Narmada Water Disputes Tribunal (NWDT) on 6th Oct. 1969 to resolve the sharing of Narmada waters and Narmada River Valley Development under the Chairmanship of Justice V. Ramaswami.
