Does appear to be somewhat near..

I think closer to your images at Phlogacanthus quadrangularis (Hook.) Heine

The leaf characters suggest it to be Phlogacanthus in my opinion. 
But I have not come across the spp and do not have literature containing the key to this spp..so have to end at that

Location : Dampui forest near Mamit
Altitude : ca 950 m.
Date : 02-03-2016
Habit : Small shrub
Habitat : Wild, growing in the primary forest

I think you posted it earlier, about an year back. 
Is it not the same as Phlogacanthus quadrangularis as identified by ... in another thread: MS March/16/04 Phlogacanthus sp. for ID/Confirmation ?
I have doubts about this species as Aystasia sp., because out of two recorded species A. neesiana and A. pusilla in Mizoram none of these resembles to attached images, as in A. neesiana having a pink corolla it has long tube for more than 4cm and has distinct long tubular floral morphology.
This should be a Phlogacanthus species and most probably P. quadrangularis as per flower morphology.
