## MEASUREMENT OF LAND IN NEPAL

In Nepal we use different units for measurement of land. In hilly regions we use Ropani-Ana-Paisa-Dam system while in Southern parts i.e. at Terai region we use Bhigha-Kattha-Dhur system.

The conversion between these units and also to the SI unit is essential as we come across this situation often.

The conversion factor for these units is as follows

Ropani-Ana-Paisa-Dam system

• 1 Ropani =16Ana
• 1 Ana =4 Paisa
• 1Paisa =4 Dam

Bhigha-Kattha-Dhur system

• 1 Bhigha= 20 Kattha
• 1 Kattha= 20 Dhur

For inter conversion between Ropani and Bhigha

• 1Bhigha=13 Ropani

Similarly in standard units we may use

• 1 Ropani =74feet X 74 feet
• 1 m=3.281 feet

tyo m to ft conversion vayena hai
its 1m=3.2808398…ft hunchha
or1m=3.281
because 0.3048m=1ft

one yard=0.914 meter
one hath = 0.46 meter

The measurement system in Assam is wrong. 1 bigha(14400 sq ft) =5 kathha (2880 sq ft each). Please correct.
