[A]Assamese
[B]Manipuri

[D]Khasi

Manipuri
Meetei Mayek script is used for Manipuri language which is one of the languages in the 8th schedule of the Constitution of India. Meiteis also refers to a linguistic group. It is a group of one of the few Indo-Mongoloid populations who possess a written script and a fairly rich literature. It was developed during the reign of King Khagemba (1597-1652 AD). However, it has been of historic importance as the script has been largely replaced by the Bengali script in later years. It was recently announced by a MP in Parliament that the Meitei script will be printed in currencies instead of the Bengali script.
