An Anna (Hindustani आना ānā) was a currency unit formerly used in India, equal to 1/16 Rupee. It was subdivided into 4 Paise'' or 12 Pies (thus there were 64 paise in a rupee and 192 pies). The term belonged to the Muslim monetary system. The Anna is not commonly used since India decimalised its currency in 1957.
