Before you hop onto Katha to Chatak Conversion, you must know what Katha and Chatak mean.

Well, in a country like India that is geographically vast, different regions have distinct land types. The same holds true for the measurement units used to map them.

Most people easily understand the measurement system when some globally recognized measurement units are employed in the sale and purchase of apartments and flats across the country. However, whenever local measurement units get involved, the buyers are often boggled. Katha and Chatak are amongst such boggling local units.

But, fret not! We have got you covered. In this blog, you will find the meaning of Katha and Chatak in land measurement, how they are related to each other, how different they are, formulas for conversion, and more.

Let’s start with the definition of Katha.

What is Katha?

Katha is a land measurement unit that is customary but out-of-date after the metrication in the mid 20th century. The measurement unit Katha was born during the Pala Empire. However, it still has its usage in several parts of Eastern India, Bangladesh, and Nepal.

As Katha is a local land measurement unit, it doesn't have any short forms or official symbols. Moreover, its value keeps varying from one region to another.

Given below is the table that represents the value of Katha in different locations:

1 Katha in Bangladesh729 Square Feet or 67 Square Meter
1 Katha in Nepal338.63 Square Meter or 3645 Square Feet

In Aurangabad and Gaya1361.25 Square Feet
In Tamil Nadu1361.25 Square Feet
In Assam2880 Square Feet

Besides Katha, a few more local land measurement units are also quite popular in the Southern Part of Asia. For instance, Guntha, Ground, Decimal, Kanal, Bigha, Chatak, etc., are prevalent in India.

When real estate agents deal with local people who are oblivious of the standardized land measurement units, they convert the standard land measurement units into their local ones.

For instance, a housing property is mapped, usually in Square Feet. However, to ensure that locals understand it better, they must convert it into their local units.  Also, some regions use more than one local unit. In such cases, too, you will feel the need for conversion.

Hence, the process of conversion is quite essential.

What is Chatak?
