How many zeros in a crore/million/billion?
This seems to be a simple question. But many in our country fumble and give incorrect answers. Many link this to their income and crib about having lower income.
True, majority of our population has not seen this kind of money. But with rising income levels this needs to change. With inflow of Dollars, income level is now easily in the crore bracket. With American influence in most spheres in our life, the terms “grand, million, billion, trillion” are also fast becoming a part of our collective lingo.
Please check the table below:
Amount

No. of zeros

Indian Lingo

American Lingo

1000

3

One Thousand

One Grand

10,000

4

Ten Thousand

Ten Grand

1,00,000

5

One Lakh

Hundred Grand

5,00,000

5

Five Lakh

Half a Million

10,00,000

6

Ten Lakh

One Million

1,00,00,000

7

One Crore

Ten Million

10,00,00,000

8

Ten Crore

Hundred Million

100,00,00,000

9

Hundred Crore

One Billion

10000000000

10

Thousand Crores

10 Billion

100000000000

11

Ten Thousand Crores

100 Billion

1000000000000

12

One lakh Crores

1 Trillion

Note: A billion (bi meaning two) has twice as many zeros as a million, and a trillion (tri meaning three) has three times as many zeros as a million, etc.
So now:
One Lakh has 5 zeros
Ten Lakh or one Million has 6 zeros
1 Crore or Ten Million has 7 zeros
10 Crore or Hundred Million has 8 zeros
100 Crore or one Billion has 9 zeros
One lakh Crores or one Trillion has 12 zeros
So next time such large numbers/names appear before you, you know what they mean.The answer is absolutely clear. No fumbling and no cribbing.
Save this data somewhere. It’s useful. Share it with one and all.
