The Aizawl Development Authority (ADA), with the help of IIT, Kharagpur, has outlined the future city structure comprising satellite townships and new industrial growth centres.

Out of the total of 15,280 hectares of planning area, 6,108 hectares (40 pc) is proposed for different urban uses, including 2.38 per cent for commercial use and 0.45 for industrial use and the rest 60 per cent (9,172 hectares) for non-urban uses like agriculture, water bodies, etc. Non-urban area includes undevelopable slopped lands.

The Master Plan also suggested that lands with higher gradients be developed into eco-parks to serve as recreational facilities, and open spaces are proposed in the premises to be vacated by the Assam Rifles. A Special Economic Zone (SEZ), Public-Private Partnership (PPP) and several taxes to stabilize the economic status of the population of Aizawl have also been proposed.
