PIN is the short form for Postal Index Number. In India, all the main post offices are assigned with unique pin number each. India is divided into 8 postal regions. The first digit of PIN code represents the postal region it belongs to. For example, Delhi, Haryana, Punjab, Himachal Pradesh and Kashmir states are grouped into a single division. Similarly Andhra Pradesh and Karnataka lie in the 5th division. Bihar and Jharkand states are there in 8th division.
Each division is again subclassified into various regions of states and a special digit is assigned to each of them in all the divisions. For example, 11 meant Delhi. 20 to 28 belong to Uttarpradesh. Uttaranchal was assigned with 29. Andhrapradesh was assigned from 50 to 53. Karnataka was assigned from 56 to 59. Third digit of PIN code represents the district of the state it belongs to. For example, 506 meant Warangal. 500 meant Hyderabad. Last three digits of PIN code represent the mandal of that district, main post office and sub post office respectively. In America, five digit postal code exists. This is known as ZIP (Zone Improvement Plan) code.
