I think you have changed the output script but not the mapping used.

This was coded for Kannada, not for Devanagari.  The change required for proper Devanagari is only a minor one -- see attached.

I think one only needs to worry about the *.map files; the *.tec are produced using teckit_compile.  See http://scripts.sil.org/cms/scripts/page.php?site_id=nrsi&item_id=TECkitDownloads and related for more information.

Just googled and found this: http://unicode.org/charts/PDF/U0C00.pdf
