 # Indian Place Value Chart

The Indian place value chart will represent the place values of digits in a number. The position of a digit in a number is basically termed as place value. Now, to check if the digits are positioned correctly in a number, as per the Indian number system, we can use the place value chart. Also, with the help of this chart, we can learn to read and write the numbers in words. We will also discuss here the difference between the Indian place value chart and the international place value chart.

## What is the Indian Place Value Chart?

A chart that represents the place value of numbers as per the Indian number system is called the Indian place value chart. A number represents a count or a value. Each digit has its place value in the number, which tells its position. To learn the large numbers without any confusion, we use this chart to arrange them into periods. These periods are separated from each other using commas.

We usually go far up to nine places in the place value chart. The ninth place represents ten crores, and the first place shows the ones place. The order of place value is given from right to left for a whole number.

 Ten Crores One Crore Ten Lakhs One Lakh Ten Thousands Thousands Hundreds Tens Ones 10,00,00, 000 1,00,00,000 10,00,000 1,00,000 10,000 1,000 100 10 1

 Ten Crores One Crore Ten Lakhs One Lakh Ten Thousands Thousands Hundreds Tens Ones 1 2 2 0 4 5 9 1 2

The above number is 12, 20, 45, 912. If we spell it in words, the number would be Twelve crores, twenty-lakhs, forty-five thousand, nine hundred twelve.
