In what way does it not make sense? Signed languages are mostly natural
languages that arise, often without regard for spoken language boundaries
or national boundaries. You seem to be objecting to the idea that there
could be more than one sign language in India, but alas languages and
national boundaries often don't coincide. If there are over 20 official
spoken languages in India, why should there not be multiple sign languages?

Where can I get more details of this language? I am
aware of American Sign
Language, Chinese Sign Language, etc. I think Indian Signa Language is yet
to be properly standardised. How come there is a West Bengal Sign
Language? Will there be Kannada Sign Language, Odia Sign Language, etc?
These don’t make sense to me.
