The town has experienced considerable changes in its physical and functional structures, only in the recent past as a result of which there is a lot of haphazard and unplanned growth of the town.

Objective of Jind Master Plan 2021
The trend of the growth of the town is mainly in the eastern side of the town as the mini secretariat, urban estate, police line, jail and civil hospital is mainly developed on east side. A milk plant, on Jind Hansi Road, Sugar mill on Jind-Narwana road has already been established. In addition, there are light and service industries on Rohtak road, Bhiwani road and Hansi road. The commercial activities are mainly concentrated along the main roads as well as already existing in old town in the shape of narrow bazaars. It is also pertinent to mention here that a planned district shopping centre is being developed by Haryana Urban Development Authority on Gohana road in front of Civil Secretariat in Sector-10. Development of villages should be integral part of development scheme of the area. Around these settlements, educational, health and recreational facilities and work area should be developed for the benefit of the rural people of Jind.
