Theritically Bangla sorting order should be like that-what you have
described. But one major issue in Bangla sorting is that there are certain
characters in Bangla which are read in a order but the dictionary sorts them
differently. In fact that is happening as Bangla sorting in dictionaries
still follows Sangskrit.
I personnaly support that Bnagla sorting should as per the character order
of text book and the vowels and vowel signs should be sorted according to
the text book order.

Subject: Bengali sort order
Dear Mr. Mustafa Jabbar,
A question on Bengali sort order.
Does dictionaries (say, produced in 19th century
onwards) have syllabaries' sort order as
k (U+0995, U+09cd), ka (U+0995), kaa (U+0995, 09be), ki (U+0995,
U+09bf), kii, ...?
Or this way of representation (a series beginning with
viraama/hasanth) is not found in dictionaries, for example
Thanks for the info,
