Land measurement system in Nepal

Despite the widely prevailed unit of measurement which measures length in meter (m), and area in sq. meter, and like any other part of world, each country has its own system of measurement, so is the case with the land measurement system in Nepal. A hectare is the mostly used land measurement unit, also valid with SI system, which is equal to 10,000m2 , and 2.471 acre. An acre is equivalent to 0.4047 hectares (4,047m2).

Measurement Unit   m2 Sq. feet  
1 Bigha 20 Kattha 6,772.63 72,900 13.31 Ropani
1 Kattha 20 Dhur 338.63 3,645  
1 Dhur   16.93 182.25  
1 Ropani 16 Aana 508.72 5476 4 Matomuri
1 Aana 4 Paisa 31.80 342.25  
1 Paisa 4 Daam 7.95 85.56  
1 Daam   1.99 21.39  
25 Ropani       1 Khetmuri

Paisa, Aana, Ropani, Dhur, Kattha, Bigha, and Ropani are the units used for measuring are of land in Nepal. Under the Nepali land measurement system, 1 Daam is equivalent to 1.99m 2 or 21.39 sq. feet, is the lowest unit of measurement. 1 Paisa is equivalent to 4 Daam, 7.95m2, and 85.56 sq. feet. Similarly, 1 Aana is equivalent to 4 Paisa, 31.80m2, and 342.25 sq. feet. 1 Ropani is equivalent to 16 Aana, 508.72m2, 5476 sq. feet, and 4 Matomuri. Similarly, 1 Dhur is equivalent to 16.93m2, 182.25 sq. feet. 1 Kattha is equivalent to 20 Dhur, 338.63m2, 3,645 sq. feet. Similarly, 1 Bigha is equivalent to 20 Kattha, which is equivalent to 6,772.63m2, 72,900 sq. feet, and 13.31 Ropani. Similarly, the 25
Ropani is equivalent to 1 Khetmuri.

Mostly in Kathmandu, the system of Aana is pretty popular, whereas in the other part of the country the Dhur and Kattha system is popular. Similarly, there's local measurement system for length too. 1 Gaj is equivalent to 0.9144m, and equivalent to 1 yard. Similarly, 1 Kosh is equivalent to 480 Danda, which is equivalent to 3.218 KM, and 2 mile. Similarly, 1 Janjeer is equivalent to 9 Haat. 1 Daanda is equivalent to 4 Haat. 1 Haat is equivalent to 2 Bitta. And, 1 Bitta is equivalent to 18 Angul. So far you might have depth understanding about the land measurement in Nepal. The lowest measurement unit is Daam and the highest measurement unit is Ropani (or Khetmuri).
