        If you look through the rest of the thread, you will find that the bigha is a traditional measurement, with differing meanings in different regions. - You will have to find a legal description of what you are looking at, and work from there.

          In India, the following 2 measurements for "Bigha" are in use:

          1) In Western India, in places like Rajasthan,
          1 Bigha = 1620.43 sq. m, i.e., 0.16 Ha

          2) In Eastern India, in places like West Bengal,
          1 Bigha = 2531.92 sq.m, i.e, 0.25 Ha

          Yeah, it is confusing no doubt, but that's how it is here. This unit is used mainly in the villages for local usage and you cannot enforce anyone to forget whatever he has been following for generations. Actually they may be two words with different meanings sounding roughly the same. As an example, the word 'Ghanta' in most Indian languages mean an hour, but in some it means a clock or a watch. So, you see?

            Thanks so much for this, could you do us a huge favour and post a reference? - You might have to be creative in the way you put up a web address, one of us long term posters can edit it so it makes sense.

                  Uses in India

                  Bigha is a traditional unit of land in several parts of India, with land purchases still being undertaken in this unit. However, it varies in size from one part of India to another. It is less than an acre (0.4 hectare), however could extend up to 3 acres. Various states and often parts within states have different sizes attributed to 1 Bigha.

                  In Assam, India, a Bigha is 14,400 square feet. It is subdivided into 5 Kotha. Each Kotha consists of 20 Lecha. Each Lecha is 144 square feet in area, and hence each Kotha is 2880 sq ft in area.(may varies)

                  In Bihar, different parts use different sizes for Bigha. Near the capital, Patna, 1 Bigha is equivalent to 20 Kattha each worth 1361 Sq. Feet. Furthermore, One Kattha are subdivided in 20 Dhur. Hence, each Dhur is approximnately 68.06 Sq. Feet.
                  Further, in some of the eastern parts of the state including Munger,Bhagalpur and Jamui, One Dhur is further subdivided into 1 square lagga(pole length). One lagga is equivalent to 5.5 hand length, with each hand length being 18 inch.

                  In Himachal Pradesh, India, 5 Bighas is equal to 1 Acre.
                  in punjab ,india, 4 bigha is equal to 1 acre.according to mr pankaj dhir.0035797763568

                  0035796397613,0035799971787.

                  In central India, Bighas were standardized at 3025 square yards or 5/8 acre (0.2529 hectare).

                  In Madhya Pradesh, India, 1 Kattha = 600 Sq Feet.

                  In Uttar Pradesh 1 Bigha is divided in 20 Biswas. Each Biswas is 125 Sq.Mts or 154.32 Sq. Yds Hence, One Bigha is 0.25 Hectare (or 2500 Sq.Mts or 3087.41 Sq.Yds).While in Uttar Pradesh (West) the measurements are slightly differ 1 Bigha=20 Bishwa=60 Decimal=2428.80 Sq. Mtrs
                  In Uttarakhand, 1 Bigha is subdivided into 19 Bissas or 12 Nali. In Imperial and SI Units, each Bigha is 968 sq. yard or 800 sq.mt.

                  In West Bengal, the bigha was standardized under British colonial rule at 1600 square yards (0.1338 hectare or 0.3306 acre); this is often interpreted as being 1/3 acre (it is precisely 40⁄121 acre). In Metric Unites, a Bigha is hence 1333.33 m
