The speakers are largely concentrated in Mizoram in eastern India and Burma, with a small number of speakers in Bangladesh. Even though there is no official language in Chin State (Burma), Lai holh is used as a communication language or lingua franca in most parts of Chin State. It's used as a native language in Hakha and Thantlang area. And it's used as a communication language or lingua franca in Matupi. As Hakha and Falam dialects are from the same Lai dailect and 85% of the phonetic and accent are exactly the same, people from Falam can easily communicate with Hakha language. Strictly speaking, as Hakha is the capital of Chin State; Chins people from many parts of Chin State settle down in Hakha, or serve or work temporarily as a government employee or business men and eventually they including their children learn and speak Hakha. In this way, nowadays Hakha (Lai) dialect is used as a communication or lingua franca in the present day Chin State.
