What is a katha?

A katha is a traditional unit for measuring area, which you can encounter in Bangladesh, Eastern India (in the states like Assam or Bihar), and Nepal. Although katha became obsolete after the introduction of the metric system in the middle of the twentieth century, it is still in use - most often when people refer to a land area - as it often happens with traditional units that are deeply ingrained in people's brains.

However, there is no standardization of katha, which means that in different regions, one katha signifies different land sizes. So when you deal with an area given in katha, you first have to determine what region (the country, state in the case of India, or sometimes even the district) you're dealing with.
