How is the postal code of a city selected? When did this custom first appear?

 How is the postal code of a city selected? When did this custom first appear?

 The largest, most complex mail network in the world is the 'India Post.'

1,55,000 post offices, of which 139,000 are in rural areas.

At the time of independence, India had only 23,344 stations. They were also mostly urban.

The sevenfold growth that took place after liberation was all a planned expansion in the countryside. Today an office serves an average of 7800 Indians, one per 22 sq km.

The Indian Postal Service is over three centuries old. They started a shop in Chennai in 1712.

The Angkor Beauty Post Office has been set up on board a boat to deliver reminder letters sent by black mothers-in-law to newlyweds going to Kashmir to celebrate their honeymoon. PIN: 190001

Dakshina Gangotri Post Office. This is a frozen post office set up by India in Antarctica, the coldest region in the world. PIN: 403001.

India has set up a permanent research camp here. For researchers working in the snow, the Indian Post Office will arrive in six weeks via Australia if the wives from Chennai inquire about Kushal and drop the card.

The Madras General Post Office (GPO) was started on June 1, 1786. That was 234 years ago. The beach building was moved to a new building in 1885. PIN: 600001.

The world's tallest post office is located in the village of Hikim in Himachal Pradesh. 15,500 feet above sea level in the Spiti Valley. PIN: 172114.

Mr. Rinchen Sering, who works as a postmaster here, won the appointment order 20 years ago because he was the 'only person in the county who owned a bicycle'. Will normally deliver within a week. Sometimes it even takes 6 months.

Yes. Hickim will be cut off from the rest of the world when the snow is heavy. So leave the post office for six months. Fifty days WFH service from home to Mr. Sering!

Finding and inserting a letter into one of the lakhs of post offices in India that has flown like this is a daunting task. They introduced the postcode system to solve this problem.

Since India is a 'Copper Language Eighteen ' , such an organization was set up to avoid mistakes caused by false addresses and similar town names and to facilitate the delivery of mail.

The Indian Postal Code (PINCODE) system was introduced on August 15, 1972, Independence Day.

Postal code number system

  • The number is six digits
  • Dividing the whole of India into nine zones, the first digit indicates the zone in which the post office is located.
  • The second digit refers to the 'inner zone'.
  • The third refers to the 'Sorting District'. The final three digits are the 'specific post office' for the final mile contact.
  • The simplest method - one country; Single line.
  • Thus each postal code is mapped correctly to a delivery (delivery) post office.
  • All mails arrive at the delivery post office, sorted by postcode and sent to the delivery offices or their respective branch offices.
  • For the postal service to run quickly up to the countryside, this postcode is needed at every level.

Our admiration for the staff involved in this complex postal service that happens to be like the Srirangam Half Service with its unassuming rhythm.
