Chimbel is a little village in the Ilhas or Tiswadi taluka which is 6 kms east of Panaji,Capital city of Goa. Chimbel is a neighbour to Ribandar on the North, Merces in the West and Curca-Santanna on the East. There aren't as many large, sprawling mansions as we find in the other villages of Goa. Even after being Close to Panaji, there is no much development taking place in the village.
Hindus are a majority. There is a large population of non-Goans at the nearby Indira Nagar Colony. Chimbel has an average literacy rate of 61%, higher than the national average of 59.5%;
Chimbel has a primary health centre and a school in the name of Union High School.Ther is a small market enough to cater the needs of chimbel residence.Being close to Panaji city, Chimbel could have been converted into a tourist spot because the Chimbel lake is an ideal place for visitors.
