Dear Prasanta ji,
I found the name ᱢᱩᱨᱩᱫ murut for Butea monosperma (Lam.) Kuntze that you have listed in your post to eFI.
I found another name ᱵᱟᱦᱟ in listed in Wikipedia. Please help transcribe this word in English.
I found murup, which must be a variant of murut that you listed, in A Santali-English dictionary by A. Campbell, of the Santal mission, please help me with the name murup in Ol Chiki script.

Regards.
Dinesh

Thank you very very much Prasanta ji for putting all the name variants in the Ol Chiki script.
It is understandable that every language has a few dialects, thus the names may have variants accordingly.
Regards.
Dinesh

Respected sir,
Yes sir definitely,
Murut - ᱢᱩᱨᱩᱛ
Murud - ᱢᱩᱨᱩᱫ
Murup - ᱢᱩᱨᱩᱯ
flower - ᱵᱟᱦᱟ

ᱢᱩᱨᱩᱫ ᱵᱟᱦᱟ = Murud flower

Actually myself from Odisha State, we pronounce this flower  as ᱢᱩᱨᱩᱫ ᱵᱟᱦᱟ maybe people living in other states have those names pronounce in different way.

with best regards
