The Wikipedia has the following information about this codepoint:

The nuqta (Hindi–Urdu: नुक़्ता/نقطہ/nuqtā, Persian: نُقطه, romanized: noqte; from Arabic: نقطة, romanized: nuqṭa, lit. 'dot'), also spelled nukta, is a diacritic mark that was introduced in Devanagari and some other Indic scripts to represent sounds not present in the original scripts. It takes the form of a dot placed below a character. This idea is inspired from the Arabic script; for example, there are some letters in Urdu that share the same basic shape but differ in the placement of dots(s) or nuqta(s) in the Perso-Arabic script: the letter ع ain, with the addition of a nuqta on top, becomes the letter غ g͟hain.
