The research work done deals with transliteration of Roman characters into various Indian languages. This involved a thorough study of Unicode, a standard that has been implemented all over the world for transliteration of 129 different scripts. This universal standard has without doubt made communication easier and hence, enhanced the exchange of information. The paper briefly explores topics like phonetic transcription and Unicode consortium and proposes means to implement the two to achieve transcription of a few Indic scripts. The main objective of the paper is to provide ample of opportunity to the regional ancient languages of India, to develop a perfect synchronism with the modern information technology.
