Default Re: India Language List

On your concern I will help you here to get the names of the language spoken by Indian Citizen so that you can have idea about it.

The India is home to several hundred languages. Most Indians speak a language belonging to the families of the Indo-Aryan branch of Indo-European (ca. 74%), the Dravidian (ca. 24%), the Austroasiatic (Munda) (ca. 1.2%), or the Sino-Tibetan (ca. 0.6%), with some languages of the Himalayas still unclassified.
