It is also spoken in the Chandel district of Manipur state, the West Garo Hills and East Khasi Hills districts of Meghalaya, and in the of Cooch-Behar, Darjeeling, and Jalpaiguri districts of West Bengal.

Bodo was formerly written with the Assamese or the Latin alphabets, and since 1963 it has been written with the Devanagari alphabet. It was first written by the Christian missionary in the late 19th century. Some believe a script called Deodhai was used by the ancient Bodo people, however, details of it have been lost.

Bodo has been used as a medium of instruction in primary schools in Bodo-speaking areas since 1963. It is also used in secondary schools and in one university.
