रूपए पैसे  (Money)

Indian currency is expressed in rupees called 'rupiyaa'. The currency symbol in Hindi is 'þ' (Rs.). India adopted 'Decimal' system of currency in 1957. There are 100 'nayaa paisaa' (nayaa paisaa) to a rupee. Before 1957 the rupee consisted of 'solah aane' (1/16th of a rupee), one 'aanaa' consisted of 'chaar paise' (1/64 of a rupee) and one paisaa consisted of 'tteen paayee' (1/192 of a rupee). These expressions are still popular in colloquial Hindi. For example:

bullet 'aath aane' (half a rupee = 50 nayaa paisaa)
bullet mai.n paaee paaee kaa hissaab doo.nga (I will account for the smallest unit of the currency)
bullet yah baatt solah aane sach hai (it is 100% true)
