Solution

Effect of the mass movement will be greater along the western slope of the Sahyadri's than the eastern slope because -

  • The western slope of the Sahyadri's is steeper than the eastern slopes.
  • The western slopes receive more rainfall than the eastern slopes as a result mass movement is greater in western slopes than eastern slopes.
  • Also, the rivers as an agent of erosion are short and swift on the western slope and thus rapid mass movement is found as compared to the eastern coast.
