What is the Indian Place Value Chart?
The Indian place value chart is a table that is used to find the value of each digit in a number based on its position, as per the Indian numeral system. In mathematics, numbers are used for counting, measurements, and comparisons. Every digit in a number has its own value depending on its position in the place value chart. The place value of a number shows how much a digit is worth based on its position. In order to avoid confusion while reading very large numbers, we arrange the numbers into periods with the help of a comma as the separator.
Observe the following Indian place value chart. We use this to read and write numbers accurately according to their place values.
The chart given above shows us the following observations related to the Indian place value system:
 The nine places are grouped into four periods: Ones, Thousands, Lakhs and Crores.
 All periods are separated by a comma while writing the number in its numeral form.
 Starting from the right, the first period is ones, consisting of three place values: ones, tens and hundreds.
 The second period is thousands, consisting of two place values: thousands and ten thousands.
 The third period is lakhs, consisting of two place values: lakhs and ten lakhs.
 The fourth period is crores, consisting of two place values: crores and ten crores.
 While reading a number, all the digits in the same period are read together along with the name of the period, except the ones period.
Comparison Between the Indian and the International Number System
The main difference between the Indian and the International numeration system is the placement of the separators (commas) and the nomenclature of different place values. The International numeral system is used worldwide in which we count in terms of ones, hundreds, thousands, ten thousands, hundred thousands, millions, and billions.
Let us observe this International place value chart, which will help us differentiate it with the Indian place value chart given above.
The following table highlights the differences between the Indian and the International place value charts.

Place Value for Decimals in Place Value Chart
The place value for decimals in the Indian placevalue system is read differently from that for whole numbers. The place value for decimals gives the value of any digit after the decimal point, based on its position. These different place values for decimals can be understood using the following illustration.
Example: Write the number 12.45 in a place value chart for decimals. Write the number name accordingly.
Solution:
Let us write the number in the place value chart.
Thus, the number 12.45 can be written as twelve and fortyfive hundredths. (or Twelve point four five)
