The morphometric analysis  of the Chambal River Basin of Sitamou area located in Mandsour district of Madhya Pradesh,India, has been conducted. The morphometric analysis of a part of Chambal River drainage basin covering an area of 309.48 km2 in Sitamou block has been conducted based on Survey of India toposheet No 46 M/5 on 1:50,000 scale. The drainage basin is divided into four A, B, C and D sub -basins.
