Introduction of Pin Code in India

In India Pin Code system was started in the year 1972 on 15th of August by Mr Shriram .B. Velankar. The main motto of the system was to make physical arrangement and delivery of mail/posts simple, and to lessen the confusion of wrong addresses, diverse languages used by the community, identical names of the places.

The 3 numbers of the PIN shows a particular geographical area called as a sorting district that is located at the chief post office of the largest city and it I known as the Sorting Office. A region/state may contain 1 or more sorting districts based on the volume of mails/posts handled.

2 digits at the last shows the delivery point in the sorting district starting from 01 it can be HO/GPO. The amount of the delivery office is administered sequentially with big numbers assigned to newer delivery points/offices. If the amount of mails/posts administered at a delivery point is large a new delivery point is set up and the nest obtainable PIN is assigned. 2 delivery offices located one beside the other will only have 1st 4 numbers in common.
