Vishnu Priya answered Jun 28, 2020
Any area near or in the bank of a river are rich in minerals which help the farmers of that area to grow crops successfully. We can also say that "RIVERS ARE THE LIFELINE OF ANY CIVILIZATION" because people usually make their settlements in the area around water so that they can quench themselves and can also agriculture. When it comes to main stream rivers they also have an added advantage of TRADING. So, it might be the reason for Ghaggar area to be one of the three economic pockets of Indus Civilization.

घग्गर-हकरा नदी भारत और पाकिस्तान में वर्षा-ऋतु में चलने वाली एक मौसमी नदी है। इसे हरयाणा के ओटू वीयर (बाँध) से पहले घग्गर नदी के नाम से और उसके आगे हकरा नदी के नाम से जाना जाता है।[1] कुछ विद्वानों के हिसाब से यह प्राचीनकाल में बहने वाली महान सरस्वती नदी ही का बचा हुआ रूप है हालांकि इसपर मतभेद है और अन्य विद्वानों के अनुसार ऋग्वेद में कुछ स्थानों पर जिस सरस्वती नदी का ज़िक्र है वह यह नदी नहीं थी। इसका उद्गम चण्डीगढ के निकट हिमाचल व हरियाणा की सीमाओं पर शिवालिक पर्वत है। चण्डीगढ के पास इसी नाम का रेल्वे स्टेशन भी है। पटियाला, संगरूर, सिरसा, हनुमानगढ व श्रीगंगानगर जिलों से होती हुई, राजस्थान की अनूपगढ तहसील से यह पाकिस्तान में प्रवेश कर जाती है। इसके बरसाती जल व कठोर चिकनी मिट्टी में धान की भरपूर खेती होती है।
I hope you got your answer.
