Demberel was born in Tsagaannuur sum of Selenge Aimag in 1928 and graduated the sum primary school and secondary school Number One in Ulaanbaatar and studied at mathematics faculty of the Mongolian National University.

During the war, the windows of the households were covered by black cloth in order to hide the light in the evenings.
