Money[edit] Large amounts of money in Pakistan, India, Bangladesh and Nepal are often written in terms of crores. For example, 150,000,000 (one hundred fifty million) is written as 'fifteen crore rupees', '15crore' or 'Rs 15 crore'.[1] 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 = Rs 1 lakh crore = Rs 105+7 = Rs 1012 = Rs 10,00,00,00,00,000 in Indian notation = Rs 1,000,000,000,000 in Western notation

Lakh is also used in Sri Lanka; however, most Sri Lankans use the term koatiya (කෝටිය) or koti (கோடி) for crore when referring to money.[clarification needed] The word crore is a borrowing from the Prakrit
word kroḍi, is in turn from the Sanskrit koṭi,[2] 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. South Asian languages[edit] See also: Languages of India, Languages of Bangladesh, Languages of Pakistan, Languages of Nepal, and Languages of Sri Lanka
