Gumti River flowing through Udaipur, Tripura

Gumti, Gomti, Gumati or Gomati (Bengali: গোমতী, gomtī/gomôtī) is a river flowing through the north-eastern Indian state of Tripura and Bangladesh. A dam has been constructed near Dumbur on the river that has formed a lake covering 40 square kilometres (15 sq mi).[1]

Irrigation is underway by pump-enabled extraction directly from the Gumti, seen in the background, in Comilla, Bangladesh.
