Brief Overview: The Neo-Brahmi Script Generation Panel (NBGP) was formed by nine communities that use scripts derived from the Brahmi script. The NBGP is developing Root Zone Label Generation Rules (LGR) for Bangla, Devanagari, Gujarati, Gurmukhi, Kannada, Malayalam, Oriya, Tamil and Telugu scripts. Of these, eight script LGRs have been finalized and integrated into the Root Zone LGR version 3 (RZ-LGR-3). The remaining Bangla script LGR has now been developed (proposal and supporting document). As per the LGR procedure, the Bangla script proposal is being posted for Public Comment to allow those who have not participated in the NBGP to make their views known. Based on feedback received, the NBGP will finalize the proposal for its evaluation and integration into the Label Generation Rules for the Root Zone.
