Plot size conversion in Pakistan is a little different from what’s practiced in other countries. Working with units like marla, kanal, yard and feet often puts people in great confusion. To make things easily understandable for you, in this blog, we will explain to you the difference between the most common property measurement units in Pakistan.

Let’s get the ball rolling!

## Plot Size Conversion In Pakistan: Marla or Square Yard? What to Use?

The property measurement unit we use to calculate the area of a piece of land greatly depends on the region we live in. Let suppose, if we live in Lahore, Islamabad or any other parts of Punjab, we’ll be using ‘marla’ and ‘kanal’ as property measurement units. However, that’s not the case for Karachi and other cities in Sindh, where the property measurement system greatly relies on ‘square yard’ and ‘square foot’ as measuring units.

The measuring unit of ‘square yard’ is also known as ‘gazz’ in Urdu and other local languages. However, if you use an advanced property portal like Zameen.com, it will be very easy for you to search for property according to your familiar property measurement unit by applying filters. Here are some more ways to use Zameen.com like a pro in your property hunt.

**Quick Fact:** Marla and Kanal are area-specific property measurement units mostly used in South Asian countries including Pakistan, India, and Bangladesh. The origin of these property units dates back to the British era. In Pakistan, these measuring units are widely used in Punjab and the Islamabad Capital Territory.

## Property Size Conversion Chart: Converting Marla Into Square Feet, Square Metres and Square Yards

To give you a detailed overview of the unit size conversion for property discussed above, we have compiled the chart below in which we have given you different values denoting property sizes and the measuring units in which they have been converted. So, let’s take a quick look at it.

Marla | Square Feet | Square Metres | Square Yards (Gazz) |

1 | 225 | 20.9 | 25 |

2 | 450 | 41.81 | 50 |

3 | 675 | 62.71 | 75 |

4 | 900 | 83.61 | 100 |

5 | 1125 | 104.52 | 125 |

6 | 1350 | 125.42 | 150 |

7 | 1575 | 146.32 | 175 |

### Key Takeaways of the Property Size Conversion chart

- Converting 1 marla into square feet results in 225 square feets
- Converting 1 marla into square metre results in 20.9 square metres
- Converting 1 marla into square yard results in 25 square yards (gazz)
- 1 kanal is equivalent to 20 marlas, 4500 square feet, 419 square metres and 500 square yards (gazz)

*Note: From the table above, it is clear that 5 marlas are equal to 1125 square feet and 125 square yards, while 10 marlas are 2250 square feet or 250 square yards. The exact dimensions of these plots may also differ, depending on where the plot is located and differs from one housing scheme/colony to another. *

## Buying Real Estate In the Top Three Cities of Pakistan

The three major cities of Pakistan: Karachi, Lahore, and Islamabad, offer many lucrative property investment opportunities to home buyers. Housing projects like DHAs in Lahore, Karachi, and Islamabad, as well as the real estate developments by Bahria Town, usually remain on top of the line when it comes to property investment in Pakistan. If you are an overseas Pakistani and you are interested to invest in the real estate of your homeland, then you can go with one of the aforementioned housing projects in the country or look up for other properties in Pakistan on Zameen.

That is certainly helpful as it would clear many things. I personally use the properties section of Zameen.com for such calculations as you find properties as per square metres, marlas and kanals.

if i have a plot 18 feet 6 inches width and 30.6 inch length. how many marla it will be if we locally call 272 sq for one marla. i have a confusion that simply multiply can be wrong .

There will be not plot with a length of 30.6 Inch.

If the same is 30 feet 6 inch then it would be almost 2.075 Malras considering 1 marla = 272 Sq. Feet…

can we build a house on 5 marla plot with G/f,1/f,2/f,and roof???

length x width / 272 = 1 marla

18.50 x 30.50 = 2.075 marla

But in lahore it should be divided by 225

so

length x width/225

so 18.50 x 30.50 = 2.5077 marla.

Disclaimer above calculation is for Lahore.

1.99 Marla

one marla and 12sq ft

Hi Medam,

How r u, hope you are well, i want to share some thing with you, actually i purchase 1 plot 10 marla in al raheem garden phase 4, and also pay installments regular basis, but still i didn’t receive any positive response from society, could you please suggest me something regarding my Plot.

Thanks

Mujahid

Do contact with NAB & LDA Society Registrar Office to know the exact position of Raheem Garden … they have declared many societies illegal … if it fall in Illegal list then report to NAB & FIA and recover your money … don’t late it will be waste of your money

In fsd there is 225,270 and 272 sqft per marla.

may be in Lahore there is125 sqft per marla

But Zameen.com is working for all pakistan

People from different cities use this website…….

Faisalabad’s 1 marla is the same as 225, 270 & 272 sqft? Don’t you find it confusing?

Very helpful post.

Thanks for this.

Regards,

Zeeshan

I might be wrong but confused though. Please have a look at the topic heading. ” If 1 Marla = 125 Sq. Ft”, Is it so? or 1 Marla = 225 Sq. Ft.

Brother that is why they have mentioned in the title “if 1 marla = 225 sq. feet”. Zameen.com has defined the unit.

Anyway, this post is pretty helpful. Keep up the good work.

In some cities 1 Marla= 225 SQ Feet and in other cities 1 Marla is =272, In islamabad

DHA 1 Marla = 225 and in other areas 1 Marla = 272 Sq Feet.

This is great information. You haven’t mentioned Kanal in it. I always get confused in Marla and Kanal. I think it is 1kanal of 20 Marla or vice versa. Anyhow this is a great knowledge that everyone must have while dealing in buying and selling services of property. Thanks for sharing.

Ma sha Allah……………..Zameen.com is really playing brillient role in field of baying and selling services of property. Really appreciate of.

Regards,

Thanks

but not complete

Why multiple measuring units being used across Pakistan instead of defined standards like other countries

The CDA measures at 225, Lahore & Faisalabad at 272

The marla was standardized under British rule to be equal to the square rod, or 272.25 square feet, 30.25 square yards, or 25.2929 square metres. As such, it was exactly one 160th of an acre. The definition of marla varies between India and Pakistan.

this is totally wrong information….. they are giving round figure… that is wrong for registries and transfer papers….. Objection will be raised on this measurement…. if you entered in any challan

18.50 x 30.50 / 272 = 2.075 marla

But google search gives different conversion results, like 1 marla = 272.251 feet or 1 marla = 30.2501. Any one may try to search by google “marla equals to feet”. Others may guide with solid references.

I have plot of 19″width & 35″ length kindly tell what is the calculation of marla

If a plot size (length and width) is different i.e front = 65, back = 58 and left =33, right = 38 then how can we define it.

I have one question that what is sarsai bcoz i purchased a plot in rahim yar khan and its dimension is width 43 foot and 6 inch and length is 70 foot.

in registry there is 11 marla and 10 sarsai so i m much confused abour sarsai. so please can anyone explain it?

In southern Punjab one marla is equal to the 272.25ft sequar.

It is calculated by 16.5×16.5 is equal to 272.25

It is standard value

My plot size are odd four side length are different

1side 200 feet

2nd Side 93 feet

4orth 100 feet

How I calculate marla

my plot size are ODD

1 side 200Feet

2 179 Feet

3 100 feet

4 93 feet

How to calculate marla

My plot size is odd

1 179 feet

2 200 Feet

3 93 feet

4 100 Feet

u can calculate it….

first multiply 179*93=16647

THAN find the difference

200-179=21 and 100-93=7

now multiply the differential amount that is 21*7=147

Add both and divide it by 1 marla size…

16647/225= 73.986 Marlas

3.69933 Kenals

How do we measure a plot if its not exactly in the Same width. For example 18 feet length both sides and 14 and 13 feet width each side.

Please clear the confusion.

18 x (14+13/2) =243 Sq.Feet

A little less than 463 marlas or 23.15 kanals.

What is sarsahi??

Hi Amir,

Sarsahi is a land measurement, which is 25 square feet in size. One marla comprises nine sarsahis.

For Muhammad Shahid and other beneficiaries :

Total Square Feet 186*560 = 104,160

If 1 Marla is 272.25 Square Feet then total Marlas of 104,160 square feet= (104,160/272.25) =382.586 Marlas

Total Kanal if 1 Kanal is 20 Marlas = (382.586/20) = 19 Kanal 1 Marla

Total Acres if 1 acres is 8 kanal= 2 Acres and 3 Kanal 1 Marla

How I can calculate the Marla’s of this Plot,

If,

Front side: 20 ft

Back side : 50 ft

Left side : 52 ft

Right side: 22 ft

Answer : 8 Marla 4 Sarsahi if measuring unit is 225 Sq Feet per Marla

as per given info how can i calculate front of a plot

6 marla plot

length 38 ft

front size ?

This plot should be 35.53 feet in width.

2069.88 sqfeet {please confirm me the exact area in marla

Team can you please tell me if I have plot of 1 KANAL CORNER (4500 sq,ft.), is it possible to divide into 10 marla of two?

if yes what would be the dimensions (Length, Width) of each 10 marla?

Hi Haris,

That depends on the bylaws of the housing society or area where your plot is. Some societies allow this kind of division, while others don’t, so confirm it with the relevant authorities first.
