Curious to know:
Which regional language has appearance on atleast one SB in highest number of states other than the one in which that language is spoken.
Ex: One that I know is, Telugu. Telugu appears on atleast one SB in 4 states other than AP. Telugu appears on the boards of:
- Tamilnadu
RC - Karnataka
PMKT - Maharashtra
RGDA - Odisha

Same is the case with Raichur. RC. It will have 5 languages, Kannada, Telugu, Hindi, Urdu & English. Highest on any SBs.
Recently observed that British India #Sb of VZM, Vizianagaram Jn, Had 5 languages. Hindi, English, Telugu, Oria & Urdu. But Urdu has disappeared from its #SB now.

4 Languages is common DB sir. All stations in Hyderabad's Karantaka,& Hyderabad's AP would have 4 languages on SBs. Ex: Kacheguda /departures/844.
Hyderabad's Karnataka Bordering with Hyderabad's AP would have 5 languages.
Seen here is Raichur, City now in Karantaka has 5 languages. /departures/144
Similarly, a Village in Telangana called Krishna on the bank of River Krishna dividing the current Karantaka
& Telangana also has 5 languages. /departures/1575

Hence the board in many places have 5 languages... Even I feel the Tandur station should have 5 names...
