The triangular shaped Peninsular Plateau of India extends from the south of Indo-Ganga Plain to the Cape Comorin (now Kanyakumari). This plateau is one of the oldest surfaces of the Earth and represents a segregated part of the old Gondwanaland.
The Aravalli range in the west and the Satpura, the Mahadeo and the Kaimur range in the south divide the Peninsular Plateau into two parts:
(i) The Central Indian Plateau in the north and (ii) The Deccan Plateau in the south of it. A brief account of them is given below:
The Aravalli mountain, extending between Delhi and Ahmedabad (also Amdavad) , lies in the western flank of the plateau.
