One rupee crore, as of 2014, is approximately equivalent to $163,720, using the exchange rate of 61.07 rupees per U.S. dollar. In the south Asian numbering system, a crore is equivalent to 10 million.

There are two unique numbers in the south Asian numbering system, which is used in the Hindi, Urdu, Nepali and Bengali languages. In addition to the crore, the lakh is equivalent to 100,000, making one crore equal to 100 lakh.

The numbering system for writing crore figures is slightly different from Western conventions. Instead of writing 10 million as “10,000,000,” one crore is written as “1,00,00,000.”
