Lumding is a town and a municipal board in Hojai district in the Indian state of Assam. Over the years Lumding has developed into township. The railway township had always enjoyed scant rainfall during the rainy season every year, although the trend has significantly altered over the past few decades. Also Lumding is used as a radar station during World War II by British. Lumding railway division is famous for being one of the bigger divisional headquarters of the North East Frontier Railway and the biggest junction in the North-Eastern part of the country. The town is also the gateway to the visually enchanting Lumding-Badarpur hill-tract between Lumding and Badarpur. The track has been included as a UNESCO Heritage site a few years back. Lumding railway station is an important Railway Junction and Railway Division in the Northeast Frontier Railways as it connects Tripura to Assam. It used to have both Meter Gauge and Broad Gauge. The BG line is of Guwahati-Lumding-Dibrugarh Town and the MG line was the Lumding-Badarpur-Silchar/Agartala. Now BG line is made from Silchar/Agartala via Lumding to Kolkata as new constructions.
