The main Indian languages we work with are:

Hindi, Punjabi, Gujarati, Marathi, Konkani, Kannada, Malayalam, Tamil, Telugu, Odia, Bengali.

The languages spoken in the Republic of India are generally classified as belonging to the following families:

  • Indo-European (the Indo-Iranian branch in particular)
  • Dravidian
  • Austroasiatic (Munda in particular)
  • Sino-Tibetan (Tibeto-Burman in particular)

Of the hundreds of languages spoken in India, 22 are mentioned in the constitution of India: Assamese, Bengali (Bangla), Dogri, Gujarati, Hindi, Kashmiri, Konkani, Maithili, Marathi, Nepali, Oriya, Punjabi, Sanskrit, Sindhi, and Urdu all belong to the Indo-Aryan group of the Indo-Iranian branch of Indo-European; Kannada, Malayalam, Tamil, and Telugu belong to the Dravidian language family; and, of the three remaining languages, Manipuri (Meitei), spoken in Manipur, and Bodo, spoken in north-eastern India, are usually classified as belonging to the Tibeto-Burman branch of the Sino-Tibetan language family, and Santali is classified as a Munda language.

Except for the Khasian languages spoken in Meghalaya, north-eastern India, and the Nicobarese languages, spoken in the Nicobar Islands in the Andaman Sea lying just to the northwest of the Indonesian island of Sumatra—both of which are classified within the Mon-Khmer subfamily of Austroasiatic—the other languages of the Austronesian family are spoken in Southeast Asia.

The Constitution of India does not give any language the status of national language. The official language of the Union Government of the Republic of India is Hindi.

In addition, the Government of India has awarded the distinction of classical language to Tamil, Sanskrit, Kannada, Telugu, Malayalam, and Odia due to their long history of 1500-2000 years.
