“India is rich in certain types of resources, but deficient in some other resources.” Do you agree with the statement? Support your answer with examples.
Yes, I agree with the statement, that in India there are regions which are rich in certain types, of resources, but are deficient in some other resources. There are some regions which can be considered self-sufficient in terms of the availability of resources and there are some regions which have acute shortage of some vital resources, e.g. The states of Jharkhand, Chhattisgarh and Madhya Pradesh are rich in minerals and coal deposits.
Arunachal Pradesh has abundance of water resources, but lacks in infrastructural development.
The state of Rajasthan is very well endowed with solar and wind energy, but lacks in water resources.
