Land Measurement Units

In land transaction the acre is often used to express areas of land. Land records are written in metric system. An acre is approximately 40% of a hectare.

 

The measurement of agricultural land was carried in British Units. The units used for land measurement were as follows:

 

12 inches           =          1 foot 

3 feet                 =          1 yard

9 Square Feet     =          1 square yard

121Square  yard  =          1 Guntha

40 Gunthas         =          1 acre

 

In so many village maps you might have seen scale as a for example 1Inch=10 Chain. इंचास १० साखळी

You have to convert chain into feet as follows:

 

1 Chain             =          66 feet or 22 yards

10 chains          =          1 furlong

1 furlong            =          201.168 Metres

 

The land is now measured in Metric System using following decimal table.

 

1000     Millimeters        =          1 Metre

100       Square Metres   =          1 Are

100       Ares                 =          1 Hector

 

In 1958, the United States and countries of the Commonwealth of Nations defined the length of the international yard to be 0.9144 meters. Consequently, the international acre is exactly 4,046.8564224 square meters.  Accordingly

 

1 Hector                        =          2.47 acres (approximately)

 

In the Village Form VII-XII when you read in the “area” column numbers for example

01-34-21 it means

 

01         =          10000 Square Metres

34         =            3400 Square Metres

21         =                21 Square Metres

 

Total     =          13421 Square Metres

 

 

Conversion Table

 

1 Inch               =          2.54 Centimetre

36 Inches          =          1 yard

1 yard               =          91.44 Centimetres

1 yard               =          00.9144 Metres

 

1          Centimetre        =          00.393 inches

100       Centimetres       =          39.3 inches

1          Metre                =          3.28 ft

 

1 acre               =          1 furlong X 1 chain

1 acre               =          660 ft X 66 ft

1 acre               =          43560 Sq. ft.

1 acre               =          4840 square yards

1 acre               =          4046.8564224 Square Metres

 

1 hectare           =          10,000 Square Metre

1 hectare           =          107,639 sq ft

1 hectare           =          11959.8 sq. yards (1 sq. yard = 0.83612736 sq. Metre)

1 hectare           =          11959.8/4840 = 2.47 acre
