Until the late 1990s, the town of Tobah had a small population with a couple of schools and a Basic Health Unit. However, the town became much more significant after the completion of the M2 project in 1997. With the construction of Lillah Exit Toll Plaza, the driving distance to major cities like Rawalpindi and Lahore was greatly reduced and this created opportunities for the development of the town.

The land is generally arid, but still teems with lush green fields. The climate is mostly warm, however the temperature drops dramatically in the winter. The major crop in the area is wheat, but a few vegetables are cultivated as well. Most of the population of Tobah is employed in agriculture, but there is also a commercial sector as well as those working for the armed forces or the revenue department of Pakistan.
