The "English" groupings correspond to the named amounts:
1,000 = One Thousand
2,000,000 = Two Million
3,000,000,000 = Three Billion (bi-, meaning 2 in Greek)
4,000,000,000,000 = Four Trillion (tri- = 3)
5,000,000,000,000,000 = Five Quadrillion (quad = 4)
etc.

India has an odd system.

We knew about Chinese system (we used to work in China few years at the end of the last century). Thai system is also odd, they group them by 6 digits. In fact, this, same as in Indian dialects, comes from Sanskrit. In fact, they also "shorten" it in speech, ignoring the "small quantities", for example, you may see 1 506078, but they will say "laan haa", which is textual "million five" (i.e. one million, five hundred something) unless the accuracy is especially required (like accounting, banking, invoices, etc).

There is a myriad different number naming and notation schemes.

Just be glad we are not using the Roman Numeral system. What a mess that would be.
