@YmKavishwar: Do you have a link to a community discussion about making this change? Is this about default displaying? Is this about allowing two ways to input numbers?
It is unclear to me what "set" exactly means here...

This bug making big issue in hiwiki as long time. We want to input devnagri numbers (१,२,३) but system recognize Arabic (1,2,3) only. So many user used arebic number and many user want to use devnagri numver only.

If any able to solv this devnagri numeric problem i am ready to start new discussion. Also we discusses it in our last hindi wikimedian's neeting.

For reference, this was explicitly disabled back in 2011 per the request at T31279. It can be enabled back by removing the override for 'wgTranslateNumerals' from the configuration.

Hmm, actually, I'm not sure if you're requesting the same thing here. Can you explain more precisely what behavior you want to be changed?

In template system do not count devnagri number's as number. We created lots of categories like 'birth in 1900', 'death in 2017' etc. If we used devnagri number in category; template don't counting age.

Also sanskrit, bhojpuri, marathi languages used devnagri script and same problem in this all wiki.

@YmKavishwar I didn't understand, what you wanna here. We haven't discussed anything related on hiwiki. Have you made any discussion on hiwiki? You should first talk to local admins regarding the issue.

@sanjeevphys we discussed it hindi wiki sammelan at bhopal. You are not come there so you dont know. Two admin participate in this discussion. What you mean first ask local admin? Admin have right to do this? please do not act like admin is a boss. We all are user. Thanks.

@YmKavishwar If you have discussed in any Hindi wiki sammelan or in your private chat. You should inform us on hiwiki. I am completely un-aware of such discussion even I am completely active on hiwiki. How can you try to implement such things only on the basis of your private chat?

There is absolutely no need for this. Modern Hindi publications have LONG moved on to the international Arabic numerals (1, 2, 3...). The use of Devanagari numerals (१, २, ३...) is rather archaic if not completely obsolete.

https://hi.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=%E0%A4%B5%E0%A4%BF%E0%A4%95%E0%A4%BF%E0%A4%AA%E0%A5%80%E0%A4%A1%E0%A4%BF%E0%A4%AF%E0%A4%BE:%E0%A4%9A%E0%A5%8C%E0%A4%AA%E0%A4%BE%E0%A4%B2&curid=1001&diff=3599385&oldid=3599290

With this addition to the discussion, I've provided links to the official websites of the Indian government, the World Hindi Secretariat, secondary and tertiary educational publications, textbooks and by-laws, as well as links to various popular online Hindi-language news sites. ALL of which are using the international Arabic numeric system.

In fact, one will find more Roman numerals (I, II, III...) in a modern Hindi textbook than Devanagari numerals!

Point out where I expressed a personal opinion in that? Take notice that we cannot determine consensus on the basis of empty votes, like is being done in Chawpal. The nature of determining consensus on the basis of reliable, third-party sources cannot be ignored. If these Devanagari numerals are not being used in modern Hindi publications from governments, legislation, schools, universities, popular independent media outlets, etc. - then I don't understand why Hindi Wikipedia is to be the only one to retain this numeral system.
