It is necessary to measure land area while selling or purchasing land. It is also mandatory to measure the land for the Planning or Construction of infrastructure projects. Generally, Square Feet or Square Meter is word wide unit of Land measurement. In most of the Government measurements, Land is measured in Square meters. The measurement unit of land is different according to the place. In Nepal (eg. Terai), India (Bihar, Jharkhand, etc), Land Is measured in Katha Dhur Bigha Acre and Bigha respectively. In Hilly regions, the unit of measurements are Daam, Paisa, Aana, and Ropani. In this article, I have explained how the land is measured in Different units.

Example: This Rectangular Plot whose Length of side BC & DA are 80 Feet and 80 Feet Respectively and Breadth of side AB & CD are 60 Feet and 60 feet respectively. Refer to the below image.

**Given:**

AB = 80 Feet, BC = 60 feet, CD = 80 Feet, DA = 60 feet

Average Length (L) = (Side of AB + Side of CD)/2 = (80’+80′)/2 **= 80′**.

Average Breadth (B) = (Side of BC + Side of DA)/2 = (60’+60′)/2 **= 60′.**

**Area of Plot (ABCDA) = Average Length (L) x Average Breadth (B)**

= 80′ x 60′ **= 4800 Ft ^{2}**

**Plot/Land Measurement in Square Meter, Bigha, Katha, Dhur, Kanma, Ropani, Aana, Dam, Acre**

**Land Measurement in Square Meter**

As we Know that 1 Square Meter = 10.763 Square Feet.

From the above, Area of Plot (ABCDA) = 4800 Ft^{2}.

Area of Plot (ABCDA) in Square meter = 4800 /10.763 **= 445.972 m ^{2}.**

**Land Measurement in Bigha**

As we Know that 1 Bigha = 72,900 Ft^{2}

From the above, Area of Plot (ABCDA) = 4800 Ft^{2}.

Area of Plot (ABCDA) Bigha = 4800 /72,900 **= 0.065 Bigha.**

**Land Measurement in Katha**

As we Know that 1 Katha = 3,645 Ft^{2}

From the above, Area of Plot (ABCDA) = 4800 Ft^{2}.

Area of Plot (ABCDA) in Katha = 4800 /3,645 **=1.316 Katha.**

**Land Measurement in Dhur**

As we Know that 1 Katha = 182.25 Ft^{2}

From the above, Area of Plot (ABCDA) = 4800 Ft^{2}.

Area of Plot (ABCDA) in Dhur = 4800 /182.25 **= 26.337 Dhur.**

**Land Measurement in Kanama**

As we Know that 1 Kanama =45.56 Ft^{2}

From the above, Area of Plot (ABCDA) = 4800 Ft^{2}.

Area of Plot (ABCDA) in Kanama = 4800 /48.56 **= 98.846 Kanama.**

**Land Measurement in Ropani**

As we Know that 1 Ropani =5476 Ft^{2}

From the above, Area of Plot (ABCDA) = 4800 Ft^{2}.

Area of Plot (ABCDA) in Ropani = 4800 /5476 **= 0.876 Ropani.**

**Land Measurement in Aana**

As we Know that 1 Aana =342.25 Ft^{2}

From the above, Area of Plot (ABCDA) = 4800 Ft^{2}.

Area of Plot (ABCDA) in Aana = 4800 /342.25 **= 14.024 Aana.**

**Land Measurement in Paisa**

As we Know that 1 Paisa =85.56 Ft^{2}

From the above, Area of Plot (ABCDA) = 4800 Ft^{2}.

Area of Plot (ABCDA) in Paisa = 4800 /85.56 **=56.1 Paisa.**

**Land Measurement in Dam**

As we Know that 1 Dam =21.39 Ft^{2}

From the above, Area of Plot (ABCDA) = 4800 Ft^{2}.

Area of Plot (ABCDA) in Dam = 4800 /21.39 **=224.4 Dam.**

**Land Measurement in Acre**

As we Know that 1 Acre =43,560 Ft^{2}

From the above, Area of Plot (ABCDA) = 4800 Ft^{2}.

Area of Plot (ABCDA) in Acre = 4800 /43,560 **= 0.11 Acre**.
