 ... quite a lot, concerning  dev.sty .

Mine is a relic in a local  texmf  tree, from work I was doing 
with  devnag  ~8 years ago!

I should have checked this before posting.

After disabling the old directory, I now see what François was describing.

The cause of the problem is that  devanagari.sty  defines a macro
 \NormalFont  which needs to be set properly.
One way is to setup  \DNencdefault  and  \DNrmdefault  as you advised.
That is probably the best way to proceed.

Presumably there is documentation for the package which explains
why  \NormalFont  is defined at all.

A simple alternative "quick and dirty" approach is to just 
disable \NormalFont before doing the ToC.



This worked for me, with the example supplied.
Though it is possible that with a larger, more complex document,
this might not work --- depending on just where the \tableofcontents   
command is used.

Hope this helps,
