Goutam Kumar Saha scripsit:

> Can we add locale specific data as  "bn-selet" for a dialect of Bengali

> "Selet" in Bangladesh and "bn-selet-IN-AS" for Bengali dialect called

The correct forms are bn-BD-selet and bn-IN-selet (no provision is
made for parts of a country in language tags).  However, the "selet"
subtag must first be registered on the ietf-languages@iana.org list.
Please join that list and propose it.
