This is a request to create a keyboard layout for Marathi (mr) locale. Localizers have been CC'ed to provide feedback on the layout once provided and/or provide additional guidance if initial work already exists or if there are some specificities for this locale. If you only need an existing layout with some changes and/or a dictionary for your language, please mention it here as well. A bug to create a dictionary for your locale has already been filed out.
The keyboard provided should be compliant with what Govt. of India suggests. There is a standard from National Standards Body of India called BUREAU OF INDIAN STANDARDS (BIS) which has made INSCRIPT layout as a standard for keyboard layout for Indian languages. Recently, since the community felt that few more characters are needed to be represented in the layout, they have come out with enhanced INSCRIPT keyboard which is still a proposed standard.

This bug is no more a priority. Aniket
