Pincode

The Postal Index Number Code System, known as the PIN Code system was introduced in India on the 15th of August, 1972.  The objective of PIN Code is to simplify the sorting of mails, thus speed up their transmission and delivery.

PIN Code avoids the confusion which results out of duplication of names of various places.  Correct delivery of mails is possible if the PIN Code is written, even when the address may be written in any language.


How does it work?
  • Each PIN Code has six digits.
  • First digit indicates the zone in which the Post Office is located.
  • Second & Third digits indicate the sub-zone and sorting district.
  • Fourth digit indicates the route on which the sorting office is located.
  • Fifth & Sixth digits indicate the number assigned to the delivery Post Office.
