This chapter examines the changes in the interaction between surface water and groundwater in Narmada River Basin. It analyses the historical flows, long-term trends in rainfall in the basin, and changes in rainfall–runoff relationships between different time periods. It investigates whether change in groundwater draft had caused changes in groundwater–surface water interactions, particularly when groundwater outflows into the surface streams contributing to river flows.

Keywords: surface water; groundwater; Narmada River Basin; historical flows; rainfall; rainfall–runoff relationship; river flows
