Numerous towns and cities have thronged in the soils of India. Few towns also are found in northeastern state of Manipur also. Nambol is one such city, which has gained significance. For supervising its administration a municipal council has been set up.

To fulfill such motive a handful of demographers have organized numerous surveys and research works in Nambol city, which enabled them to throw light on various facets of its demography. The Censusu report that has been published in the year 2001 has caught the attention of most of the people.
