What is Decimal?
A Decimal, also known as Dismil or decimel, is a unit for measuring the area of the land in India and Bangladesh. However, after metrication in the mid-20th century by both countries, Decimal became officially dormant.
Nonetheless, the measuring unit is still alive among the rural population in West Bengal and Northern Bangladesh. East Africa also uses Decimals for land measurement.
1 Decimal is equivalent to 436 sq feet which approximately amount to 1/100 acre. In other words, we can say that 100 Decimals make 1 acre.
Measuring land in Dismil is quite an easy affair. It can be made equivalent to various other units of land measurement such as Bigha, Marla, Cent, Acre, Hectare Biswa, Katha, and more.
One Dismil is equal to 48.4 square yards, 1001.6718 square links, 404686.0339 square centimeters, and 62726.4401 square inches.
Dismil is a pretty simple unit that makes the calculations easier and faster. However, in India, it is more preferably converted into square feet as the calculation becomes even simpler.
Current Use of Decimal
As already stated above, the use of Decimal or Dismil has been reduced in recent times. Although this measurement unit is still used in Bangladesh, East Africa, and some parts of India such as West Bengal, Orissa, Jharkhand, etc.
Units such as Hectare, Acre, and square feet are more popular nowadays. If we talk about India, people mostly opt for measuring land in Bigha, Katha, Gaj, Biswa, Acre, Hectare, etc.
What is Katha?
Another unit of measuring area, Katha is prevalent in East India, Nepal, and Bangladesh. Typically, 1 Decimal is equal to Katha of 3.95368610 units. In Square Feet, it’s equivalent to 720 units.
However, the measurement of Katha may differ from place to place in several cases. Such as in Bihar, one Katha may range from 750 Square Feet to 2000 Square Feet while having a length of 32 Feet and breadth of 30 Feet.
Katha is basically a localized measuring unit in India and doesn’t have any standardization of the unit. Besides, it signified distinct land terms across India. In a nutshell, Katha is a unit for measuring land size.
Current Use of Katha
As aforementioned, Katha is mostly used in Bihar, Jharkhand, and Eastern part of India, and Nepal. Such a measurement unit is not used worldwide and hence, unlike square feet, it isn’t popular globally.
Measurement of Katha in the Different Indian States
|State||Measurement in Katha|
|Bihar||750 to 2,000 square feet|
|Assam||2880 square feet|
|West Bengal||720 square feet|
|Patna (Bihar)||1,361 square feet|
|Palamu (Jharkhand)||1,742 square feet|

Dismil and Katha, both land measurement units are quite popular in Bihar, India. One Katha is equivalent to 3.124713013 Decimal, approximately 4 Decimal. The relation between Decimal and Katha could be shown using the following mathematical expression:
1 Katha = 3.124713013 Decimal or 3.4 Disimal
On the other hand,
