There are actually more than 2. See also U+0981 for the Bengali
candrabindu, U+0A81 for the Gujarati candrabindu, etc.

U+0901 is intended for use with the Devanagari script -- the
normal usage.

U+0310 is intended for the relatively infrequent use of a
candrabindu as a diacritic in Latin transliteration of Indic
