What is an PIN code?

Postal Index Number or more popularly known as PIN code that we usually see at the end of any complete address of India refers to a six-digit numeric code in the Indian postal system by India post.


History of PIN codes

The PIN code was first introduced on 15th August, 1972 by Shriram Bhikaji who was the then Additional Secretary in the Ministry of Communications.

A new system was felt required to simply the process of manual sorting and delivery of mails. Presence of different languages, places with similar names created a lot of confusion and a standard procedure was needed to simplify the process.
