Numbers and Currency
Numbers
Always use numerals to write numbers. Don't express numbers in words.
7 out of 10 people on LazyPay are lazy
Note: There may be exceptions, like certain casual expressions: "You're one in a million" or when you want to give weight to a number like "Repay at ZERO interest"
Be specific
Ordinal numbers
Spell out ordinal numbers from 110: first, second, fourth, tenth. After ten, you can use numerals with a superscript suffix: 11th, 12th, 121st, and so on.
Examples: To denote rank, recurrence etc

Using commas, words, or abbreviations
For  What to do 

< 999  Write it as usual 
Between 1,000 and 99,999  Write with one comma like 1,000 or 10,999.

Masking sensitive data
Use * to mask card numbers, mobile numbers, FD account numbers, email IDs etc.
Percentages
Percentages should be written with “%” and not “percent”. No spaces. For ranges, use a dash as connector. If there are space constraints, you may omit the spaces next to the dash.
Fractions and decimals
Spell out easy fractions like half, twothirds.
If a fraction can’t be written in an easy way, use a decimal up to 2 decimal places
Note: Currently, our Squad Earnings page is an exception to this rule
Phone numbers
Mobile numbers
Write mobile numbers with a single space after first 5 digits. Follow this for mobile number input fields as well. This is to improve readability of the number.

Landline numbers
Write landline numbers with a single space after first 4 digits.
2635 4359
Codes
Add STD codes +91 or city codes like 033 with a space. Don’t use dash.
+91 98765 43210
033 2635 6927
Currency
As a financial app, currency is very important for us to get right. We must be consistent in how we denote currency throughout the app.

Follow Indian denominations for numbers and currency eg lakhs, crores not millions, billions

Use rupee symbol ₹, not ‘INR’ or ‘Rs.’ or ‘rupees’.

For negative amounts, place the minus symbol, with a space, in front of the currency symbol.
₹500

Both ‘lakh’ and ‘lac’ are correct but we will use lakh since it’s used on the RBI website
