HistoryEdit

Lad Rymbai is Jaintia for "junction to the Rymbai village".[1] Originally, a small village, it emerged as a town with the completion of the National Highway 44, which made the village a transit point for vehicles operating between Guwahati and Silchar. The highway also made it possible for the businesses to exploit the local coal and limestone deposits, leading to the development of an unregulated mining industry.[1]

EconomyEdit

Lad Rymbai is an important market of the district, and is located at a distance of 30 km from [[Jowai].[2]

DemographicsEdit

The Pnar tribe are the native inhabitants of the village, which also attracts seasonal migrant coal workers from Bihar, Nepal and Bangladesh.[1]
