Himalaya to China (NW. Yunnan): Assam, China South-Central, East Himalaya, Nepal, West Himalaya as per POWO;
It is native to Bhutan, China, India, and Nepal. U. recta grows as a terrestrial plant in marshes and bogs from altitudes around 900 m (2,953 ft) to 4,000 m (13,123 ft).
It was originally described as a variety of U. wallichiana by Daniel Oliver in 1859. It was later transferred to a variety of U. scandens by Krishnaier Subramanyam and Banerjee in 1968. Peter Taylor elevated the variety to the specific rank in 1986 upon further review of its morphological characteristics.

Thanks for sharing this yellow Utricularia
This is possibly U. recta P.Taylor. However, as the photo is not showing much details another possibility is U. bifida. More photos would help!

Maybe Utricularia bifida L. as per images herein.
What are the species reported from your area in Mizoram?
Utricularia bifida L. ??
From North East there is a species described by Taylor. It is U. recta (U. scandens var. firmula elevated to a species). This may be that. I have collected it from Meghalaya. If fruit photo is there it will be easy to identify, especially to distinguish between U. bifida and U. recta.
