The Standard Alphabet of Mahl Transliteration (SAMT) is a transliteration method that allows transliteration of Indic scripts. It is some times called The International Alphabet of Mahl Transliteration (IAMT) The tables below give the Devanagari equivalent of each letter but include letters from Kannada, Tamil, Malayalam, Bengali and Arabic to illustrate the transliteration of non-Devanagari characters. The Standard Alphabet of Mahl Transliteration, intended for the romanization of all Indic scripts, is an extension of IAST. But few letters do not agree with its IAST equivalent.
