Perso-Arabic Script Code for Information Interchange


Perso-Arabic Script Code for Information Interchange

Perso-Arabic Script Code for Information Interchange (PASCII) is one of the Indian government standards for encoding languages using writing systems based on that of Arabic, in particular Kashmiri, Persian, Sindhi, and Urdu. The ISCII encoding was originally intended to cover both the Brahmi-derived writing systems of India and the Arabic-based systems, but it was subsequently decided to encode the Arabic-based writing systems separately.

Codepage layout

The following table shows the character set for PASCII. Each character is shown with its decimal code and its Unicode equivalent.
