    Solution:

    The Narmada peninsular rivers of India flow west and make estuaries.
    The estuary is an area of saline water, the flowing mouth of a huge river. It alludes to the gathering point of the tide and the stream. The rivers of India have been separated into East streaming rivers and west-streaming rivers. The east-streaming rivers are the Godavari, Krishna, Cauvery, Mahanadi, and the Narmada and Tapi structure, the west-streaming rivers.
    The east-streaming rivers channel into the Bay of Bengal and structure huge deltas. The west-streaming rivers channel into the Arabian Sea and do not frame deltas.
    The west-streaming rivers structure estuaries rather than Delta because,
    1)      The Deccan level has a toward the east slanting, making it more raised than the eastern coast. Thus, there is no ground accessible for the arrangement of Delta.
    2)      Since the greater part of the west-streaming rivers begins in Western ghat, their movement distance is lesser when contrasted with the east-streaming rivers before getting into the ocean.
    3)      The west-streaming river courses through hard shake on its way and cannot gather sediment. These hard shakes keep the west-streaming rivers from extending their mouths into the ocean. Subsequently, they structure estuaries.
    4)      The Narmada is a west-streaming river that structures estuaries.
