SrI Shashi,

Namaste. While svaras are not present in laukika saMskrita currently, there
is evidence that the udAtta, anudAtta, svarita classification was present
in laukika "bhAshA" also in earlier times (vide the sUtra-s "uccair
udAttaH", "nIcair anudAttaH", "samAhAra svaritaH" etc in pANini's
ashTAdhyAyI ). I do not know when it vanished from laukika usage, though.
