I see, thank you.

This code in your input method:
    (input-method ne newa-prachalit-trad-ttf)
means that the input method is for "ne (nepali)" language and the
input-method name is "newa-prachalit-trad-ttf".

If it is for the language "newa" and the layout is similar to "nepali
traditional layout",  I think it is better that the above line is:
    (input-method newa napali-traditional)

And one more thing I don't understand is this:
(description "Newa Prachalit script input method with ttf-fonts like layout..")
How ttf-font and keyboard layout relates?
