The term Postal Index Number or PIN is also widely known as PIN code in India. It refers to the code in the post office number of the postal code system which is predominantly used in the India Post to segregate the mails. The Postal Index Number consists of six long digits. This system of coding the postal address was introduced way back in 1972 by Shriram Bhikaji Velankar, who was the then additional secretary in the Union Ministry of Communications.
The main reason behind the introduction of the PIN-code system in India was to help the postal departmental staff in manually sorting and delivering the mail to the accurate address and thus eliminating the confusion over similar place names, incorrect addresses, different languages used by the public.
