Nagarchal is a supposed but unattested language, presumed to be Dravidian, of India. According to the 1971 census, there were 7,100 speakers of the language, but they have since shifted to Hindi and Gondi. The Nagarchal people live in the Balaghat, Chhindwara, Mandla and Seoni districts of Madhya Pradesh, the Durg District of Chhattisgarh, the Bhandara District in Maharashtra, and Rajasthan. Nagarchal speakers are sometimes referred to as Nagarchi.[1]
