Hi!
Indian and International are two different systems of numeration.
These can be shown by the following table with corresponding place values.

In Indian system, the number 25,35, 05,439 can be read as,
“Twenty-five crore thirty-five lakh five thousand four hundred and thirty-nine”
 
In international system, the same number can be read as two hundred fifty-three million five hundred five thousand four hundred and thirty-nine.
It is separated by commas as 253,505,439. 
 
Cheers!
