  6. Thank you, very useful information.

    I have changed the format with "=" sign -


    The following are the basic 'measurements of land used in Punjab and Haryana' in ascending order.
    1 'karam' = 5.5 ft
    1 'marla' = 9 square karams = 272.25 sq ft = 30.25 sq yd
    1 'kanaal' = 20 marlas = 5,445 sq ft
    1 'killa' = 8 kanaals = 43,560 sq ft = 1 acre
    1 'bigha' = 2 kanaals = 10,89 sq ft
    1 'marabba' = 25 killas = 1,089,000 sq ft = 25 acres

    A killa is measured rectangularly, reckoned as an area 36 karams (198 ft) x 40 karams (220 ft) (43,560 square ft)

    Kothis are measured in marlas and kanaals. Most are two to four kanaals but the big ones can be anything from four to six kanaals.

  7. WORNG Ans. 1 'bigha' = 2 kanaals = 10,89 sq ft
    Right :- 1 'bigha' = 2 kanaals = 10,890 sq ft,= 610 sq yd

    ReplyDelete
  8. Yes Mr. Jaawed Rana is right.

    But Mr. Jawed ur calculation about the Sq. yards is wrong. Its not 610 Sq. Yards. It will be 1210 Sq. Yards

    Ans. 1 'bigha' = 2 kanaals = 10,89 sq ft
    Right :- 1 'bigha' = 2 kanaals = 10,890 sq ft,= 610 sq yd

  21. Matlab Assignment Help helped me to complete my seventh Matlab assignment, which was also the best-performed! It scored 92/100, which I've never scored before on any other assignment/exam in my lifetime. Otherwise, their service was as quick as usual. The delivery was also on time. I'm now requesting to use this same programmer multiple times. He seems the best in Image Processing tasks. Meanwhile, I'll ask for more Matlab Homework Help soon.

  22. I have just come across your post and I believe this is exactly what I am looking for. I want an economics assignment help from a tutor who can guarantee me a top grade. Do you charge per page or does it depend on the
    bulk of the economics homework help being completed? More to that if the work is not good enough do you offer free corrections.

  24. Hi, other than economics assignment help are there other subjects that you cover? I am having several assignments one needs an economics homework help expert and the other one needs a financial expert. If you can guarantee quality work on both then I can hire you to complete them. All I am sure of is that I can hire you for the economics one but the finance one I am not sure.

  27. The ardent Programming Homework Help tutor that nailed down my project was very passionate. He answered my Python questions with long, self-explanatory solutions that make it easy for any average student to revise. Moreover, he didn't hesitate to answer other questions, too, even though they weren't part of the exam. If all Python Homework Help experts can be like this then they can trend as the best Programming school ever online.

  28. How much do you charge for a Statistics Assignment Help task?

Do you charge on the basis of the workload or have a constant payment?

  30. As much as there are discouragements, it is true that mathematics is hard. Like in my case, I was never discouraged by anyone about math but I still find it very hard and that is why I am requesting your Math assignment help. I am tired of struggling with mathematics and spending sleepless nights trying to solve sums that I still don’t get right. Having gone through your Math homework help, I am sure that I will get the right help through you. Please tell me what I need to be able to hire you.
