Dear List,

I am involved in the preparation of the supplement to the *Official List of
Polish Geographical Names of the World *- already published in 2005, by the
Head Office of Geodesy and Cartography (Główny Urząd Geodezji i
Kartografii), Warsaw, Poland -  and accessible at:


The supplement  - planned to be published as the *Official List of Polish
Names of Historical Monuments and Buildings of the World *- is  to
include formal names of selected important South Asian historical
buildings/monuments; a provisional, not yet completed list, is accessible

 serve as the basis for precise transliteration and the Polish

What I need are VERY FORMAL names of the Basilica - both in *Hindi* and
*Konkani *- such as those formally used and published in the Indian
Catholic Church sources.

If you would give me the names as they are written in Devanagari, I could
easily transliterate them - using myself the ISO 15919 rules of

Thank you in advance for your kind help,
