This question is intended to know about broad level classification only. Further classification is not needed.

In English language, words may not exist for each category of ghosts. So I am using an umbrella term "ghost" to cover all such beings.

I heard and know the names of Bhoota, Pretha, Pisacha only.

Are these three only the classes of ghosts? If no, what is the broad level classification of ghosts?

    @Archit makes them seem less like classifications and more like different euphemisms for the same thing. Feb 3 at 19:22

    Just heard, it's based on age of the person who dies. Like as i heard Munja (of a small kid) , Khiss (of a unmarried ). Or based on wishes remaining. I just guess these are not true classifications.
