Devanagari script

Gondi is typically written in the Devanagari script or Telugu script but actually has its own writing system, the Gondi script, which was designed by a Gond in 1928. The names of the days of the week, the months, the Gond festivals were discovered in the Gondi script.[1]

Most Gonds are illiterate and do not use any script, but some adopt the Devanagari or Telugu scripts as their own, and the Gonds’ own script is being used far less than before[2]
