  2. Hi everyone. I am a Quantity Surveyor in the UK and i have land in west bengal. I was looking for the conversion rates, and it was near impossible to find. Here is a comprehensive schedule of conversation rates from British Library. Hope it is useful. If you need a conversion calculator software then I can email it to you for free, just email me a request for Land measurement conversion calculator and I will send it to you as soon as possible. It is a great software tool made in MS Excel, all you have to do is enter the amount of land in acres or kattas or decimal or bighas etc. and it will work out the exact amount in square feet, square metres, square yards, kattas, decimals. bighas etc. Email me on I will post up separately another comment with the conversion rates to prevent confusion.

  3. Unit Decimal Katta Gonda Bigha Acre

    Sq FT


    Sq Meter


    Sq Yard





    Bigha 0.03

  4. Conversion rates are here as follows written manually:

    One Decimal = 435.61 sq ft which is 40.468m2, which is 40.40 sq yard

    One Katta = 1.6 Decimals, which is 697 sq ft, which is 64.75m2, which is 77.44 sq yard

    One Gonda = 3.75 Kattas, or 0.181 Bighas, or 6 decimals, which is 2613.66 sq ft, which is 242.80m2, which is 290.40 sq yard

    One Bigha = 1/3 acre or 20.83 Kattas, or 435.61 Decimals, which is 14520 sq ft, which is 1344.54m2, which is 1600 sq

    One Acre = 0.405 Hectares or 3 Bighas or 62.5 Kattas, or 100 Decimals, or 43560 sq ft, or 4067.23m2, or 4840 sq yd

    One Hectare = 2.47 acres, or 7.41 Bighas,
    or 154.44 Kattas, or 247.10 Decimals, or 107639.104 sq ft, or 10,000 sq metres, or 11,960 sq yd

    You are advised that the best way to measure your Land is to work out the area by multiplying the lenghth by width in feet or metre and then divide this area into the area of Bigha or Kattah etc in square ft.

    Eg. you have 128 decimals of land you want to work out how many Kattahs:

    From the conversion rates above 1 Decimal = 435.61 sq ft, so 128 Decimals is 128 x 435.61 sq ft = 55,758 sq ft.

    One Kattah is 697 sq ft, so you divide 55,758 sq ft /697 = 80 Kattah.
