Nepali native units of measurements

Nepal officially adopted metric system of measurement in 1968 with "Standard Measurement and Weight Act, 2025 B.S.  (1968)" but in daily practice many old systems are still in use. Here is the list of all native systems used in Nepal.

for Land Area measurement

In Terai region (flatlands of Nepal) the customary units like elsewhere in South Asia are used:

1 Dhur (धुर) = 16.93 m² = 182.25 sq.ft.
1 Kattha (कठ्ठा) = 20 Dhur = 3645 sq foot = 338.63 m²
1 Bigha (बिघा) = 20 kattha = 13.31 Ropani = 72,900 sq foot = 6,772.63 m² = 0.677 hector

In Hill and Mountainous regions:

1 Daam (दाम) = 21.39 Sq ft = 1.985 sq m
1 Paisa  (पैसा) = 4 Daam = 85.56 Sq ft = 7.94 m²
1 Aana (आना) = 4 Paisa = 16 Daam = 342.25 sq ft = 31.79 m²
1 Ropani (रोपनी) = 16 Aana = 64 Paisa = 5476 sq feet  = 508.74 m² = 0.05 hector = 4 muri

1 Ropani = 4 Matomuri
1 Matomuri = 0.25 ropani = 0.13 hector
1 Khetmuri  = 25 Ropani

1 khet = 1.3 hector

for length measurement

1 Angul = approx. 0.75 inch
1 Dharnugrah (bow grip) = 4 Angul = 3 in
1 Dhanurmushti (fist with thumb raised) = 8 angul = 6 in
1 Vittaa (span) = 12 angul = 9 in
1 Haat = 2 Bhitta = 1.5 ft
1 Danda  = 4 Haat = 6 ft
1 Janjir = 9 Haat

1 Kos or Gorut = 2000 dand = 4000 yards = 2.25 miles = 3.7 km
1 Yojan = 4 kos = 9 miles = 14.5 km

for Grain (Dry eg Rice, Paddy) measurement  

1 muthi = 1/10 mana
1 mana = 0.5682 liter = ~ 0.454kg rice (chamal) = ~  0.3 kg rough rice (dhaan)
1 kuruwa = 2 mana
1 paathi = 4 kuruwa = 8 mana  = 152 cubic inch* = 4.54596 liter (measurement act 1968)
1 muri = 20 paathi

10 muthi = 1 mana
2 mana = 1 kuruwa
4 Kuruwa = 1 pathi
20 pathi = 1 muri

for gold measurement 

1 gm = 8.573 lal
1 aana = 6.25 laal
1 tola = 16 anna = 100 laal = 11.66 grams

for other weight

1 chatak = 4.5 tola = 58.31 gm
1 pau (पाउ)=  4 chatak
1 seer = 0.9331 kg (terai)
1 seet = 0.80 (hill)
1 dharni (धार्नि) =  2 bisauli (बिसौलि) = 4 bodi (बोड़ि) = 12 pau  = 2.3325 kg = 5.142 pounds  = 2½ seer
1 palla = 2 dharni = approx 5 kg
1 maund  = 37.3242 kg

different names of counting [current Nepali vs old nepali language]

english= nepali - old nepali
one = EK - Raam
two = dui - duna
three= teen - teen
four = chaar - chaar
five = paanch - Okhle
six = chha - Mokhle
