Kurmali (Eastern Nagari: কুর্মালী or কুরমালী kur(a)mālī) is an Indo-Aryan language of the Bihari group spoken in Eastern India. Kurmali is generally linked to the Kudumi Mahato (also known as Kurmi, Mahanta or Mohanta) community of Jharkhand, Odisha & West Bengal. Kudmali is also spoken by the Kudumi people of Assam, and was brought to the tea gardens from Bihar, Orissa and West Bengal. The Jharkhand intellectuals claim that Kurmali may be the nearest form of language used in Charyapada. As a trade dialect, it is known as Panchpargania (Eastern Nagari:পঞ্চপরগনিয়া), for the "five districts" of the region it covers, or Tamaria. Kurmali is a traditional language of Kurmi community.
