We had a long tradition of water transport before the construction of bridges and roads which got boost during the subsequent Five Year Plan. But our policy planners missed or say overlooked this sector of transportation which is more economical and fast. The inland water navigation and transport can be boosted by due emphasis on the development of water sports and river front development. Bihar Government has initiated such project in the river Ganga along the banks of state capital Patna. Small stretch of the river front has been developed and there is great enthusiasm among the people and water sports lovers. The Inland Waterways Authority of India (IWAI) should give more economic incentive to such development project so that others can follow the suit.
