What is a Pin Code?

Pin Code, often written as pincode, is the short form for Postal Index Number (PIN). It constitutes of a six-digit long numerical code that is used by the Indian Postal Department to ensure accurate delivery of posts to that part of the state / district / area of India. Postal code of that specific area (along with the complete delivery address) ensures that every post is delivered to the correct recipient. This code refers to the post office numbering or post code system used by India Post (Indian postal administration.)

History has that the this system was the brainchild of Mr. Shriram Bhikaji Velankar (the then Additional Secretary in the union ministry of communication). He came up with this system on August 15, 1972, as a medium to simplify the manual sorting and delivery of correspondence. It works by eliminating the mix-up of wrong addresses, primarily caused by places with similar names and the use of varied languages by people.

For ease of and better management, a total of nine PINcode zones were created for India, which further comprised of eight regional zones and one functional zone (unique to the Indian Army).
