The correct answer is Dharwar region, Karnataka.

  • The oldest rocks in India are reported from the Dharwar region, Karnataka.
  •  Vindhya Range, broken range of hills forming the southern escarpment of the central upland of India.
    • From Gujarat state on the west, it extends about 675 miles (1,086 km) across Madhya Pradesh state to abut on the Ganges (Ganga) River valley near Varanasi, Uttar Pradesh.
    • The mountains form the southern edge of the Malwa Plateau and then divide into two branches.
  • Siwalik is a highland region between the Mahabharat and Chure mountain ranges in Nepal.
    • The region has huge deposits of calcium carbonate and of important minerals such as iron, sulfur, and copper; the deposits, however, are generally of sub-economic grades that currently are not worth exploiting
