A crore (; abbreviated cr), karor or koti denotes ten million (10,000,000 or 107 in scientific notation) and is equal to 100 lakh in the Indian numbering system. It is written as 1,00,00,000 with the local 2,2,3 style of digit group separators (one lakh is equal to one hundred thousand, and is written as 1,00,000).


Large amounts of money in India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, and Nepal are often written in terms of ''crore''. For example, 150,000,000 (one hundred and fifty million) is written as "fifteen ''crore'' rupees", "15crore" or "Rs 15 crore". In the abbreviated form, usage such as "15cr" (for "15 ''crore'' rupees") is common. Trillions (in the short scale) of money are often written or spoken of in terms of ''lakh crore''. For example, ''one trillion rupees'' is:
:= ''One lakh crore rupees'' := 1 lakh crore := 105+7 := 1012 := 10,00,00,00,00,000 in Indian notation := 1,000,000,000,000 in Western notation ''Crore'' is also used in Sri Lanka; however, most Sri Lankans use the term ''koti'' () for ''crore'' when referring to money.

'crore' denoting ten million in the Indian numbering system, which has separate terms for most powers of ten from 100 up to 1019. The ''crore'' is known by various regional names.
