Indian English
A major dialect of the English language, having many varieties in India, and also spoken by Indian ex-patriates, Indian migrants, and Indian tourists throughout the world.

Much more common was the bureaucratic use of Indian English. Below the level of the most highly educated, whose English was invariably modelled on old-fashioned teaching, were the English-using clerks of the Imperial administration.
