Dear Harry,

Yes, it does. Hindi vowels can be, and are very often, nasalised. 
Nasality is shown by the sign candrabindu (ँ). However, when there is a 
vowel sign above the top line, only the dot wil be written. 
Transliteration: tilde, sometimes an m with under- or overdot.

हाँ, मैं हूँ । Yes, I am.
