The character U+0904 (DEVANAGARI LETTER SHORT A) is not a part of ISCII 91.
Neither was it encoded in any of the earlier versions of ISCII. Hence
according to the ISCII standard this character simply cannot be formed.

Subject: Devanagari Letter Short A
I've been trying to make sense of the Indian scripts, but am
having one small difficulty. I can't seem to find the ISCII 1991
equivalent for U+0904 (DEVANAGARI LETTER SHORT A).
Is this a character that is part of the set accessed by the
extended code (xF0) or was this part of the ISCII 1988
standard that did not survive the changes to ISCII 1991?
Alternatively, does ISCII encode this as xA4 + xE0 as this
would seem to generate the proper glyph even tho it
violates the syllable grammar given in Section 8 of ISCII?
Or even more alternatively, am I just missing something
that should be obvious, but which for some reason I can't see?
Even with the slight differences in the naming conventions
between ISCII and Unicode, I don't seem to be misplacing
any of the other vowels or consonants.
