The Malayalam Number System

0 - ൦
1 - ൧
2 - ൨
3 - ൩
4 - ൪
5 - ൫
6 - ൬
7 - ൭
8 - ൮
9 - ൯
10 - ൰
¼ - ൳
½ - ൴
¾ - ൵

The old system had dedicated numerals for multiples of ten (൰), hundred (൱) and thousand (൲).

Twenty would be written as ൨൰ (not ൨൦), two hundred as ൨൱.

@ashwinvis yeah. Since Rome had trade relations with Kerala, this probably got influenced from them I guess.
