1. Perks of Learning Hindi Numbers in India

Hindi Numbers

In India, more often than not, the Indian system of Hindi numbers is used in everyday life. This practice is commonly seen all over the country. Whether you’re going to buy groceries or take a rickshaw or bus, the native number system is what people use all the time. And adding to that, even the well-educated folks are more comfortable using the native number system.

From getting a local recharge done to paying bills for the newspapers, asking for the date and time, or sharing your flat number with your neighbors, you’ll at least need to learn Hindi numbers 1 to 10 for easy communication.

As the majority of the labor class doesn’t understand English numbers, knowing the basics like Hindi numbers 1 to 100 can help you bargain successfully whenever possible. Working with numbers in the local dialect will, overall, save you time and energy.

2. Some Quick Tips about Indian Currency and Number System

The Indian Currency

Rupee, the standard currency of India, is represented by the symbol ₹ and is locally known as रुपया rupayaa.

The Hindi term for “cents” is पैसे (paiSe). That means, 1 rupee has 100 paise. But paise doesn’t just mean “cents” in India. It also means “money,” so it can be used to refer to any amount of money.

Just focus on learning the names of one to hundred numbers in Hindi, and after that, the whole pattern keeps repeating itself.

For later purposes, the word “Hundred” is spoken as सौ (Sau) in Hindi and the word “Thousand” means हज़ार (hazaar).

6. Number Names for 21 to 30

21 २१ इक्कीस ikkiiS Twenty-one
22 २२ बाईस baaiiS Twenty-two
23 २३ तेईस TeiiS Twenty-three
24 २४ चौबीस caubiiS Twenty-four
25 २५ पच्चीस pacciiS Twenty-five
26 २६ छब्बीस chabbiiS Twenty-six
27 २७ सत्ताईस SaTTaaiiS Twenty-seven
28 २८ अट्ठाईस atthaaiiS Twenty-eight
29 २९ उन्तीस uNTiiS Twenty-nine
30 ३० तीस TiiS Thirty

1- Quick Tip:

With some simple observation, you can easily become familiar with the Hindi counting. For your ease, we’ve also written the names for the Hindi numbers 1-30 in English.

Another peculiar pattern is that in English numerals, “twenty” is used as the prefix whereas the word ‘बीस’ (biiS) is used as a suffix in the Hindi digits.

For example, तीन (TiiN) + बीस (biiS) = तेईस (TeiiS). This is true for the numbers 21 to 28, but not for 29 because this uses the suffix for the 30s.

As you can see, the names of the next eight numbers depend on the preceding multiple of 10, but the name of the ninth number depends on the following multiple of 10. This works for all, except for 89 and 99, which continue to use the suffix of the preceding multiple.

Up to here, we’ve covered the Hindi numbers 1-30. The suffix in the 30s line will be ‘तीस’ (TiiS).


7. Number Names for 31 to 40

31 ३१ इकतीस IkaTiiS Thirty-one

33 ३३ तैंतीस TainTiiS Thirty-three

38 ३८ अढ़तीस adhaTiiS Thirty-eight
39 ३९ उनतालीस uNaTaaLiiS Thirty-nine
40 ४० चालीस caaLiiS Forty

1- Quick Tip:

In Hindi numbers names, one may not always find a uniform pattern as in English. Always remember that the names keep changing in a slight and subtle way.


8. Number Names for 41 to 50

41 ४१ इकतालीस IkaTaaLiiS Forty-one

Viola! You can easily make out that the Hindi number name for 122 would be एक सौ बाईस (Ek Sau baaiiS).

11. Number Names for 1000 to 10,000!

English Number Numbers Hindi Name Transliteration English Name
1000 १००० एक हज़ार ek hazaar One-thousand
2000 २००० दो हज़ार Do hazaar Two-thousand
3000 ३००० तीन हज़ार TiiN hazaar Three-thousand
4000 ४००० चार हज़ार caar hazaar Four-thousand

9000 ९००० नौ हज़ार Nau hazaar Nine-thousand
10000 १०००० दस हज़ार DaS hazaar Ten-thousand

1- Quick Tip:

When you’re dealing with Hindi numbers 1000 to 2000 or above, follow the same rule as you did in the hundreds.

Simply replace the word सौ (Sau) with हज़ार (hazaar) and you’re good to go.

2- Example:

In the English number 4120, its number name is “Four-thousand one-hundred and twenty.” Now, you already know that the Hindi name for “four-thousand” is चार हज़ार (caar hazaar), for “one-hundred” it’s एक सौ (Ek Sau), and for “twenty” it’s बीस (biiS).

There you go! You can easily figure out that the Hindi number name for 4120 would be चार हज़ार एक सौ बीस (caar hazaar ek Sau biiS).


12. How to Say the Cardinal Numbers

English Namer Hindi Name Transliteration
First पहला pehaLaa
Second दूसरा DuuSaraa
Third तीसरा TiiSaraa
Fourth चौथा cauTHaa
Fifth पाँचवा paancavaa
Sixth छठा chathaa
Seventh सातवाँ SaaTavaan
Eighth आठवाँ aathavaan
Ninth नौवाँ Nauvaan
Tenth दसवाँ DaSavaan

1- Quick Tip:

  • The cardinal numbers are mostly used to give a direction, address, or anything else that follows a sequence.
  • Depending on the gender of the person or thing, the cardinal name will end with different sounds. Masculine words will end with a sound of aa and feminine words with the sound of ii.
  • For instance:
    • Second turn.
    • दूसरा मोड़
      (DuSaraa mod)
    • Third story.
    • तीसरी मंज़िल
      (TiiSarii maNziL)


13. Sharing Your Phone Number in Hindi

Sharing Your Phone Number Using Hindi Numbers

It’s fine to use English numbers while sharing your phone number with your colleagues. But when it comes to your neighbors, newspaperman, milkman, or maid, it’s better to break the ten digits of your number into five pairs of Hindi numbers with two numbers each.

That’s how the Indians do it generally. Another way is to break it into two pairs of Indian numbers with five numbers in each pair.

For instance, your mobile number is 9457886140.

  • Going by the first method, you can tell it as 94-57-88-61-40. So, in Hindi, you’ll say it as ९४-५७-८८-६१-४० i.e. चौरानवे (cauraaNave) - सतावन (SaTaavaN) - अट्ठासी (atthaaSii) - इकसठ (IkaSath) - चालीस (caaLiiS).
  • The second way to say it is 94578-86140. So, in Hindi, it would be said as ९४५७८-८६१४०. That would be चौरानवे पाँच सौ अठहत्तर - छियासी एक सौ चालीस (cauraaNave paanc Sau atthahaTTar - chiyaaSii ek Sau caaLiiS).
