This question already has an answer here:

I was wondering if there are shapefiles for postcode regions in India.

I did find some shapefiles that give the outline of the administrative units in the country but not with postcodes. Right now I am using Google Map API that highlights the region under pin-code.


It looks like the information is not present in public domain. It looks like either you can crowdsource the information or buy it from a thirdparty called MapMyIndia.

I found a blog by Anand.S where he wrote about his crowdsourcing idea. Other than this I couldn't really find anything interesting: mapping-pin-codes

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

  • Welcome to GIS.SE. It looks like you have two questions here. One indicates you're looking for a shapefile for postcodes of India. The other asks whether you can extract the information under the pin-code. Please edit your question to reflect what you are actually looking for. Possibly split them up into two separate questions. – Fezter Nov 18 '13 at 0:18

    If you are looking for a shapefile of the postcode regions, let me tell you that they exist, but at a price. There is no freely available shapefile for this, AFAIK. – Devdatta Tengshe Nov 18 '13 at 3:31
  • @DevdattaTengshe, thanks and I guessing its outrageously priced right? – feverDream Nov 19 '13 at 6:58
  • It's still not clear what you are looking for. Are you looking for a shapefile? if so, please put that in the question. – Devdatta Tengshe Nov 19 '13 at 6:59

Maymyindia charges approx Rs. 14Lakhs for entire India pincode data. They charge around Rs. 80k per city.

We're looking for long answers that provide some explanation and context. Don't just give a one-line answer; explain why your answer is right, ideally with citations. Answers that don't include explanations may be removed.

  • Do you have any affiliation to Mapmyindia? – Aaron Mar 28 '17 at 18:18
