Description :
Gondwana formations occur as outliers on Precambrian rocks along eight prominent river valleys of India. Large-scale fold tectonics are postulated for the coal belts of Mahanadi, Wardha. Godavari, Pench-Kanhar, Ganga (Rajmahal), and Brahmaputra (Eastern Himalaya), in addition to those earlier postulated for Damodar and Koel-Son Valley fields. It is also demonstrated that major faults, often forming present day boundary faults, were formed by block tectonics during the Tertiary period and are not only post-depositional but post-intrusive.
