Are you on debian 9, I think the recent update fixed this issue.

No this was a bug which was introduced due to removal of indian language
layouts from the main xml file which gnome uses. This was removed because
Indian Redhat developer thought that these layouts are not useful and may
clutter gnome control center. You can see the commit here ->
This was reverted when users reported the issue and I guess debian guys
patched the files and released it with an update. Other distros will have
wait for the new release of xkb I think.
