The Aima script was developed by Hiralal Debbarma and was based on the ancient Koloma script. The Aima script is also known as Koloma or Kokborok script. The ancient Koloma script was used from the 1st century AD.
Today Kokborok is generally written with the Latin alphabet, and was written with the Bengali alphabet during the 19th century.
