    Solution:

    The above statement is true.
    The Shiwalik range is parallel to the narrow belt known as Bhabar. This belt is between 8 and 10 km wide. Along the foothills of the Shiwalik range in the Himalayas, this narrow belt stretches from east to west. This belt is broad in the western and northwestern hilly areas but Narrow in the eastern hill region. This belt is not ideal for agricultural activity as it has large trees. When rivers descend from the mountains, they leave pebbles and other debris in the  Bhabar belt. The Bhabar plains are well-known for their enormous trees with deep roots. These plains stretch from Jammu to Assam south of Shiwalik.
