    Two hundred (rupees) is not enough

    Hi,

    Two hundred (rupees) is not enough for me.

    Is the sentence correct?
    Is it necessary to use "rupees"?

    Two hundred rupees is not enough for me is fine.

    You'll need to use 'rupees' unless context makes it clear that you are talking about rupees.

    The currency is often omitted when it is clear what is being discussed.
