About Katha

Among the many localized units used for land measurement in India is katha. Even though the use of katha has become obscure as the usage of the metric system units became popular in India post the mid-20th century, locals in some northern and eastern states still use this term as a unit to refer to land area. Sates where the unit is still sometimes used include Assam, Bihar, Jharkhand and West Bengal. Since there is no standardization of this unit, it is meant to signify various land sizes in these states. Apart from India, katha as a land measurement unit is also used in Bangladesh and Nepal. In these countries as well, katha signifies varying land sizes.
