One Hundred Thousand rupees. Comes from the Pali or Prakrit "lakkha" which may have had a gambling significance, but which came to mean one hundred thousand. In English usage, you can add an 's' to pluralize it, but sometimes that is not necessary.

Usage

Raj is getting paid 10 lakhs a year.

The going price for that kind of work is 5 lakh rupees, so that fellow is ripping you off.

One hundred lakh equals one crore, or ten million.

The word "crore" is derived from the Prakrit word krodi, denoting "ten million" in the Indian numbering system, which has separate terms for all powers of ten from 100 up to 1019. The crore is known by various regional names in modern languages, all derived from the Sanskrit word Koti.

Usage

Ram sold his house for 3 crores. (30 million)
