LAND MEASUREMENTS IN INDIA

Just like the diverse religions, casts, languages that India is synonymous with, we have diverse measurements for land too! Many of these units are alien to most of us! Most popular measurement in India is Bhiga (Bigha), Cents and Acres. But in certain localities people would not even have not heard of Cents and Acres. They transact in queer measurements like Kanal, Are and Katha. There are many more! To complicate the issue, same unit name could mean different amount of land, in different states! For example Bigha! Check out the Table Below!

If you know of a measurement unit that is not featured below, please contact us so that we could cover that too!
