Proposal to Encode the Takri Script in ISO/IEC 10646


This is a proposal to encode the Takri script in the international character encoding standard Unicode. This script was published in Unicode Standard version 6.1 in January 2012. Takri was used in northern India and surrounding countries in South Asia. It was the writing system for the Chambeali and Dogri languages, well as Jaunsari, Kulvi, and Mandeali. It was the official script in a number of states of north and northwestern India from the 17c until the mid-20c, when it was gradually replaced by Devanagari.
