Jenticha was developed by Krishna Bahadur Jenticha (1926-1991) in the 1942 to write Sunuwar. It is used mainly in Sikkim, where it officially recognised, though Devanagari is more commonly used to write Sunuwar. Jenticha was originally a phonemic alphabet, but later became a syllabic alphabet
Jenticha has been used to produce books for use in primary schools, for poetry, histories, a newspaper, a grammar, government records, academic works and so on.
