IMPORTANT TRADE ROUTES OF THE BARAK VALLEY DURING THE COLONIAL PERIOD

Dr. Khalil Ahmed Mazarbhuiya.

Abstract
Transport and Communication are the means by which agricultural and industries commodities are moved from
internal consumption and far export abroad. Amongst all forms of transport, waterways dominated the scene in
Barak Valley. During the colonial period, the basic infrastructure for the development of agriculture and industry
was transport. Communication in the Barak Valley was not well developed though all the forms of communication
were in use. This is due to the isolated location of the North-East India which is linked with rest of the country by
only a narrow corridor between the Himalayas on the one side and Bangladesh on the other. Actually, the
development of trade and commerce is entirely dependent on economic infrastructure. The state of transport and
communication had been sadly very poor in Barak Valley. There was no road which could be used for all the year
round. The river Barak and Surma and their large tributaries were the only means of transport of the boats carrying
the goods. The tributaries of Surma-Barak were not at all navigable in the upstream and during the rainy season
because of strong currents. Plying of loaded boats was extremely risky.
