There are various situations where it is advisable and even necessary to know how to write a number in words. For instance, it is common practice, when writing in English, to write numbers in words. For larger numbers, like thousands, tens of thousands, hundreds of thousands and millions, it is also common practice to write them in words instead of their numeral form, in order to avoid the reader from misreading the number of zeros. Moreover, writing numbers in words becomes essential when filling out a cheque.

**17000 in words is Seventeen Thousand.**

When talking about a sum of money, you'll add the currency name after the amount in words. For example, if you have ₹17,000 in your pocket, you'll say "I have seventeen thousand rupees in my pocket".

When filling out a cheque, it is necessary to write the numeral amount in words as well. This makes it more difficult to tamper with the cheque and therefore avoids any fraud. If there is any discrepancy between the numeral amount and the amount in words, the cheque will simply be rejected.

Usually, we write 17,000 on a cheque as "Seventeen Thousand Only." On most cheques, the word "Rupees" is already mentioned, so there is no need to actually write "Rupees" yourself. If there is a paise amount as well, e.g. ₹17,000.59, you can write it as "Seventeen Thousand and Fifty Nine Paise Only". It is also common to write "Seventeen Thousand and Paise Fifty Nine Only", to avoid any confusion that 59 is the paise amount. When writing the numerical value, ensure that you always end with a "/-" symbol to avoid tampering. For the same reason, when writing the amount in words, make sure to always end with the word "Only".
