Numaligarh Refinery Township occupying more than 250 acres of undulating terrain and separated from the Refinery by a few kilometres was constructed without disturbing the picturesque landscape unique to the area. This has served the dual purpose of preserving the natural profile, as well as adding to the aesthetic beauty to the township.
Nestled among the luxuriant hills, the pretty township houses almost all the NRL employees and their families. The Township has all the modern facilities within its boundary limits. Apart from the basic necessities of Residential quarters, Hospital and School, the Township has a Co-operative society which caters to the day to day needs of its residents. Well maintained parks, open spaces and entertainment facilities like the Club , Community Centre, swimming pools, gyms, tennis courts, playgrounds make for a good and comfortable living experience.

made a mark as an educational institute to reckon with. Affiliated
to the CBSE, the School imparts quality education for students from
Nursery to Class XII. Apart from academics, the school pays special
attention to identify and nurture latent talents amongst its students
and steer them in the right direction. Students have the option
to choose from a wide range of extra co-curricular activities that
the school has to offer like Educational tours, trekking, computer
courses, horse riding, sarod and sitar classes, clay modelling,
scouts historical society, nature club and NCC form part of the
curriculum. A well furnished hostel complex with academic ambience
has been established to cater to around two hundred boarders.
