# In Indian rupees, 1 Trillion is equal to how many crores?

Last Updated : 06 Feb, 2024

## Answer: 1 Trillion is equal to 1 lakh crores.

In the Indian numbering system, understanding the value of 1 trillion in terms of crores requires a bit of conversion, as the two systems use different scales. In the international numbering system, which is widely used around the world, 1 trillion is written as 1,000,000,000,000 – that’s a one followed by twelve zeros.

In India, however, large numbers are typically counted in lakhs and crores. One lakh is 100,000 (5 zeros), and one crore is 10 million, or 1,00,00,000 (7 zeros). To convert 1 trillion into crores, you need to divide it by the value of one crore.

Here’s the math: 1 trillion (1,000,000,000,000) divided by 1 crore (10,000,000). This calculation gives you 100,000. Therefore, 1 trillion is equal to 100,000 crores in the Indian numbering system. This conversion is particularly useful in financial discussions and economic contexts in India, where the concept of ‘crore’ is more commonly used and understood than ‘trillion’.
