In India, Urdu is spoken in places with large Muslim communities or cities that were once power centres of Muslim Empires. They include parts of Uttar Pradesh, Delhi, Kashmir, Bhopal and Hyderabad. Some Indian schools teach Urdu as a first language and have their own syllabus and exams.

Urdu is remarkably close to Hindi. The main difference between these two languages is that Urdu is written using Arabic script and Hindi makes use of the Devanagri script.
