Pin Code is a term commonly used in India to refer to the Postal Code. The term “Pin Code” is derived from the words “Postal Index Number,” which is also sometimes used interchangeably with other terms like “Zip Code” or “Post Code” in other parts of the world. Whatever the name, the function of these codes remains the same – to ensure accurate and efficient delivery of mail and other postal services to the intended recipient.

What is Pin Code

In India, a Postal Index Number Code (PIN Code) is a six-digit code used by India Post, the country’s postal system, to identify specific post offices and their respective areas. The PIN code system was introduced on August 15, 1972, to simplify the sorting and delivery of mail by assigning a unique code to each post office in the country.

The PIN code is divided into two parts: the first digit represents the region or postal circle, and the second digit represents the sub-region or sorting district within that region. The remaining four digits represent the specific post office and its delivery area.

The PIN code is an essential part of the addressing system used in India, and it is required when sending any mail or parcel through the postal system. The correct use of the PIN code ensures faster and more accurate delivery of mail, as well as the timely delivery of important documents and parcels.
