Initially this place was a village with land mainly owned by Lali clan, and a place where different sub tribes of Lali clan used to reside., family of Lali clan is currently a politically powerful family of the area. Details about Lali Clan are to be found in books named Kulyat_e_Sadiqquie, and Kulyat-e-Lali, written by Professor Riaz Ahmed Shad. The author has traced the history of Lali clan and linked them with the great Muslim hero, Tipu Sultan. The police station of Lalian was established in 1867 during the British rule, the high school was also established during the British rule in 1918 as was the Rural Health Center. It has a technical training center managed under TEVTA and also has a veterinary hospital. Nadra office is shifted in Lalian on 11-07-2011 which is operating near grain market.

Lalian is facing problems in health, education and veterinary sectors. Rural Health center is unable to provide quality health facilities to residents as it has no emergency and no ambulance, and no available gynecologist and awaits upgradtion into THQ hospital to cater to the local people. Veterinary Hospital is also insufficient to meet the ever-growing needs in the field of livestock. The technical training center lacks enrollment due to out fashioned and useless variety of courses provided and need to be upgraded with new career oriented courses and training to ensure better enrollment. Education is in need of great improvement with Science classed to be started at Inter and graduation level so that quality education be provided to ensure the bright future. Roads are also not in a good condition and as economy depends on good infrastructure, so it must be improved.
