Tagin (Tagen), also known as West Dafla, and Bangni (incl. Na) are a Sino-Tibetan language spoken in India.[5]

Stuart Blackburn states that the 350 speakers of Mra have "always been, wrongly, subsumed under the administrative label of Tagin."[citation needed] It is not clear if Mra is therefore a distinct dialect of Bangni-Tagin, or a different Tani language altogether.
