    India adopted Decimal Currency system on 1 April, 1957.

    Before 1957 Currency Decimalization,  India has a system of Annas,

    1 rupee = 16 annas = 64 paise = 192 pies was used, the decimalisation process defines 1 new paisa = 1100 rupee. The following table shows the conversion of common denominations of coins issued in modern India and Pakistan. Bold denotes the actual denomination written on the coins
