unfortunately, "pur" is out of flan  :D and it's the beginning of the mintname which is present : "Gobind..".

Thanks for the correction. I had an impression that the right most word was a 'P'

I agree, the first letter looks very like a "P" but, on some coins from this mint, the "G" is written with a  little mark in "S" shape,
due to oxidizing it isn't visible on your coin; I join a picture of one of mine with this script well visible ( same date & month as yours)

Here is a better image of the same coin. The month is clear on this one.
