A german friend asked me about this stamp,she thinks it's from Bhor.
I don't know anything about Indian philately but I know there are several experts on the forum.

These BHOR stamps are a problem ,I scan the stamp and checked with the Medical doctor across the street from my house . He can read 3 or 4 languages from India ,got no help from him .

Then I checked with a engineer at one of our National Lab's ,he reads and talks in different Indian languages ,he is from Mumbai . No luck there .

The problem is, India has 22 official languages . Then there are uncountable number of different lingual families in some of the languages. Those stamps could be written in a dialect that is not being used anymore and not taught in schools

The inscriptions in the Bhor SG 2 stamp are in Devnagari script and the language is Marathi.

As this site does not support Devnagari script, here is the screenshot of the exact inscriptions of Bhor 1A SG 2, typed in MS Word.
