What is a PIN Code?

A Postal Index Number (PIN), or commonly called a PIN code, refers in India to a code in the post office numbering or postal code system used by India Post. The code is six digits long.

The PIN system was established on 15 August 1972 by Shriram BhikajiVelankar, an additional secretary in the Union Ministry of Communications. This system (PIN code) was introduced to simplify the manual sorting and delivery of mail by eliminating complexity over incorrect addresses, similar place names, and different languages used by the public.

Structure of a Pin Code

The first digit of a PIN denotes the zone, the second indicates the sub-zone, and the third, combined with the first two, indicates the sorting district within that zone. The final three digits are allocated to individual/particular post offices within the sorting district.

Postal zones

There are 9 postal zones in India, as well as 8 regional zones and 1 functional zone (for the Indian Army). The primary or first digit of a PIN indicates the zone and is allocated over the 9 zones as follows:

First Digit of Pin Code Zone
1 Delhi, Haryana, Punjab, Himachal Pradesh, Jammu and Kashmir, Chandigarh
2 Uttar Pradesh, Uttarakhand
3 Rajasthan, Gujarat, Daman and Diu, Dadra and Nagar Haveli
4 Maharashtra, Goa, Madhya Pradesh, Chhattisgarh
5 Telangana, Andhra Pradesh, Karnataka
6 Tamil Nadu, Kerala, Puducherry, Lakshadweep
7 West Bengal, Odisha, Arunachal Pradesh, Nagaland, Manipur, Mizoram, Tripura, Meghalaya, Andaman and Nicobar Islands, Assam, Sikkim
8 Bihar, Jharkhand
9 Army Post Office (APO), Field Post Office (FPO)

Sorting district

The third digit of a PIN, linked with the first/primary two digits, signifies a specific geographical region (except in the case of the functional/operative zone for the Army) called a sorting district that is headquartered at the main post office of the largest city in the region and is identified as the sorting office. A state may have one or more than one sorting districts depending on the volume of mail managed.

Service route

The fourth digit indicates the route on which a delivery office is located in the sorting district. This is 0 for offices in the main area of the sorting district.

Delivery office

The last two digits indicate the delivery office within the sorting district beginning from 01 which would be the General Post Office (GPO) or the Head Office (HO). The numbering of the delivery office is done chronologically with higher numbers allocated to newer delivery offices. If the volume of mail managed at a delivery office is too big, a new delivery office is created and the next available PIN is assigned. Thus, two delivery offices located close to each other will only have the first four digits in common.

Delivery System

Each PIN is assigned to exactly one delivery post office which receives all the mail to be delivered to one or lower offices within its jurisdiction, all of which share the same code. The delivery office can either be a General Post Office (GPO), a Head Office (HO), or a Sub-Office (SO) which are normally located in urban areas. The post from the delivery office is classified and routed to other delivery offices for a distinct PIN or to one of the relevant sub-offices or branch offices for the same PIN. Branch Offices (BOs) are established in rural areas and have limited postal services.
