According to the Census of India 2001 Report, the Bishnupriya Manipuri people are residing all across the States (except Orissa) and Union Territories of India, the total population is 77,545. Data showed in the decade 1991-2001, the increase of the population is 30.92 per cent; however data on previous census is not available, it cites the language “Bishnupuriya in 1981 was withheld from publication due to the pending decision over nomenclature.”

We fall in the Indo-Aryan branch of the Indo-European family with the languages: Assamese, Bengali, Bhili/Bhilodi, Bishnupuriya, Dogri, Gujarati, Halabi, Hindi, Kashmiri, Khandeshi, Konkani, Lahnda, Maithili, Marathi, Nepali, Oriya, Punjabi, Sanskrit, Shina, Sindhi and Urdu, the report reads.

In the Census “PART B: Distribution of the 100 Non-Scheduled Languages-India/States/Union Territories - 2001 Census” report, the Bishnupriya Manipuri people are enterprising and are residing all over India, even in Jammu and Kashmir [9], in Madhya Pradesh the population is 1, Maharashtra [16], Karnataka [3], Kerala [2], West Bengal [41], Assam [53,812] and Tripura 21, 716.

It is to be noted that the word “Bishnupuriya”, and not “Bishnupriya”, is spread across on all the important online documents. What we have to do to correct the clerical or (...) errors?

Let us see, how the report reads in the next census – Bishnupuriya or Bishnupriya or Bishnupriya Manipuri. It has to be seen.
