How to display Currency in Indian Numbering Format in PHP?


I have a question about formatting the Rupee currency (Indian Rupee - INR).

For example, numbers here are represented as:

1
10
100
1,000
10,000
1,00,000
10,00,000
1,00,00,000
10,00,00,000

Refer Indian Numbering System

I have to do with it PHP.

I have saw this question Displaying Currency in Indian Numbering Format. But couldn't able to get it for PHP my problem.

How to use money_format() in indian currency format?


Solution

  • You have so many options but money_format can do the trick for you.

    Example:

    $amount = '100000';
    setlocale(LC_MONETARY, 'en_IN');
    $amount = money_format('%!i', $amount);
    echo $amount;
    

    Output:

    1,00,000.00
    

    Note:

    The function money_format() is only defined if the system has strfmon capabilities. For example, Windows does not, so money_format() is undefined in Windows.

    Pure PHP Implementation - Works on any system:

    $amount = '10000034000';
    $amount = moneyFormatIndia( $amount );
    echo $amount;
    
    function moneyFormatIndia($num) {
        $explrestunits = "" ;
        if(strlen($num)>3) {
            $lastthree = substr($num, strlen($num)-3, strlen($num));
            $restunits = substr($num, 0, strlen($num)-3); // extracts the last three digits
            $restunits = (strlen($restunits)%2 == 1)?"0".$restunits:$restunits; // explodes the remaining digits in 2's formats, adds a zero in the beginning to maintain the 2's grouping.
            $expunit = str_split($restunits, 2);
            for($i=0; $i<sizeof($expunit); $i++) {
                // creates each of the 2's group and adds a comma to the end
                if($i==0) {
                    $explrestunits .= (int)$expunit[$i].","; // if is first value , convert into integer
                } else {
                    $explrestunits .= $expunit[$i].",";
                }
            }
            $thecash = $explrestunits.$lastthree;
        } else {
            $thecash = $num;
        }
        return $thecash; // writes the final format where $currency is the currency symbol.
    }
