There are 15 official languages in India, but Hindi is the national language of India.

Hindi (the standard Hindi in addition to the many dialects of different understanding, the formation of macro-language) is the most common language of India. Indian census takes the broadest possible definition of "Hindi" as a wide range of "Hindi". Native speakers of Hindi so defined accounts for about 43% of Indians.

Indian English is recognized as the mother tongue 226,449 Indians in the 2001 census. English is a second "language of the Union", except Hindi [1].

Thirteen languages account for more than 1% of India's population each, and each other more than 95%, and all of them are "scheduled languages of the Constitution." Planned languages by less than 1% of Indians Santana (0,64%), Nepali (0,28%), Sindhi (0.25%), Manipur (0.14%), Bodo (0,13%) Dogri ( 0,01%), according to the Jammu and Kashmir). The largest language, which is not "planned" is Bhili (0,95%), followed by Gond (0,27%), Kumaoni (0,21%), Tulu (0.17%) and Kurukh ( 0.10%)

I think it is hard work to count language which is speaking in India. I don't know about other states but in my state Rajasthan speaking language is changed after every 100KM. Indeed India have to much speaking languages. Hindi is mother of all these.

There are also many languages which are only in spoken form. There are many languages dying without use. For example some dialects in Andhaman Nickobar languages are facing extinction.

I would say that there are far more than 15 languages spoken all through India.Take for example my own state Karnataka - we have four official languages namely Kannada, Konkani, Thulu and Kodava.I am sure it is the case with several other states where there are more than one official language spoken ...India also has many dialects spoken by smaller tribes !
