Dear K Handa,
Sorry for the confusion regarding comments. I used the layout ne-trad-ttf as a starting point for this layout and some references remained, please find cleaned up mim attached.

I have these lines in the attached file
(input-method new newa-traditional)

(title "𑐎 newa-traditional")

new - language code for Nepal Bhasa
newa-traditional - name of this layout

I hope this is okay.

Regarding newa-prachalit-trad-ttf I was not able to find that in the attached file, may be you downloaded it from the blog link I shared (?) I will upload the revised version soon.

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?
