Can you explain why you need a separate locale?
From what I can see, the only change between current hi_IN and mai_IN is
LC_IDENTIFICATION category, missing
in LC_CTYPE category (this was added fairly recently in glibc CVS to most
locales) and comments, nothing else.
So, wouldn't it be better to make mai_IN an alias to hi_IN?
If you really need separate hi_IN, couldn't it at least for all categories
which are identical between hi_IN and mai_IN use copy "hi_IN" rather than
duplicating all info?

Updated locale file
It will be better to make it seperate mai_IN.
I attached locale file updated accordingly.
There is no reason to not use copy for LC_CTYPE, LC_COLLATE, and LC_MEASUREMENT

Updated file mai_IN
There is one more category which should be copied. I fixed the file up and
committed the change upstream. It'll appear in the next rawhide build.
Fixed in glibc-2.5.90-4 in rawhide.
