# Land Measurement Units in India – Area Conversion Table

## Land Measurement Units in India

Land measurement units in India vary from state to state. Measurement of land in North India is done in units such as Bigha, Biswa, Marla, Kanal, Kattha etc. whereas units used in Southern states include Ground, Cent, Ankanam, Guntha etc. Sizes of units like Bigha, Biswa and Katha also vary from state to state. Although there is an increase in the use of standard units such as Square Feet, Square Yards, Square Meters, Acres and Hectares, local units are still used all across India for measurement of land. We realized that such important information about land measurement units in India is fragmented and should be assimilated at one place. Hence, in this Guide, we have collated all major land measurement units used in India and provided area conversion table & length conversion table for better understanding. For quick conversion of area, check out Land Area Converter.

4. Mahesh Ukabhai says

You have excluded – VINGHA {unit of land measurement in Gujarat}
What is the translation into sq. metres form Vingha?

1. y motala says

The unit VINGHA is definitely the one used not Bigha in the Surat area. So definitely a unit referred to as Wingha/Winga/Vinga/Vingha does exist..
Please chek with a Mamletdar or Talati in the Surat area and please include the unit of”Gujrat WINGA” in your convertor.
How many sq. meters in a Vingha?

1. Team AY says

Thank you for pointing our Mr. Motala
We will do some research about “Vingha” unit and update this guide accordingly.

I Guntha = 33 ft x 33 ft = 1089 sq. ft = 101.17 sq. meter = 121 sq. yard ( 11 x 11 yard )
16 Guntha = 1 Vigha = 1618.72 sq.mter = 1936 sq.yard = 132 ft x 132 ft
40 Guntha = 1 acres
1 acre = 4840 sq. yard = 4047 sq. meter = 2.5 Vigha =
1 Ares = 100 sq. meter
1 Hectare = 10,000 sq. meter = 2.47 acres = 6.1767 Vigha
1 sq. mile = 640 acres = 259 hectare
