Indian English Meaning

The term "Indian English is applied to any variety of English that is spoken in any region of India. 

Unlike the Standard English

It is a synchronic variety and unlike the standard English it lacks a uniformly consistent standard. it is because India has an number of regional languages and when  particular regional language interacts with the  English it develops a new variety that is unique to the reason there cannot be a standard Indian English and the educated speaker's of English in India have no choice but to come as close as possible to the received pronunciation ( RP)  of UK. As  a result of a number of regional language English and all of which are broadly brought under the rubric of 'Indian English'.

Indian English:     Contribution of Dr .R.k Bansal

However an attempt was made by Dr RK Bansal an eminent linguist at CIEFL .Dr Bansal  endeavours has created the universally accepted variety of Indian English known as General Indian English. He had introduced certain indianised  consonant and vowels sounds which replaced the corresponding R.P(Receipt Pronunciation) sounds. For example The R.P (θ) is written  in General Indian English (GIE) as (th) . Another consonant change in R.P (r) rewritten as (d) . Similarly R.P Dipthong (eˏ) and (au) are written (e:) , (o:)

In addition to these sound all phonological changes' Dr Bansal has also introduced certain new in  lexical and grammatical item that are popular in GIE for example - the morning tea in Indian English becomes bed tea, Hill Resort becomes hill station, bus station  becomes bus stop,  cousin is cousin brother sisters. in addition to these change Indian English also incorporate  certain hybrid compounds like words  made by combining English and Hindi words like Lathi charge, Gunda Tax , Police wala, Brahmin hood, etc.

Difference in pronunciation

English as spoken by educated people in India does not differ  radically from native English in Grammar and vocabulary but in pronunciation it is different from both British and American English even within India there are a large number of regional varieties each different from the other in certain Ways  and returning  retaining to some extent the phonetic pattern of the Indian language spoken in that particular region.

In every region , however there are people who have shaken off the gross features of region and speak a more neutral form of Indian English . It is also true that in every region there are not good speaker of English and bad speakers of English , The term 'good' and 'bad' referring to the degrees of approximation to native English and standard Indian English and also to qualities of clear , effective and intelligible speech . It would however ,be better to aims at international intelligibility.
